In today’s day and age, women are breaking more barriers than ever before. The International Women’s day is a public holiday observed on March 8 and dedicated to showing appreciation to women all over the world while bringing more awareness to the different inequalities women face each day.
This International Day dates back to the 1900s when National Women’s Day was first observed on February 28 in the United States, according to the United Nations.
One of the most important things women strive for in their lives is equality.
After a long series of astounding achievements for women, 2018 was nick-named “The Year of the Woman”, after all the different accomplishments done by women that have never been attempted or achieved before.
This year’s theme is #BalancceforBetter, which is meant to promote equality for women and men in professional, media, government and other high career positions.
Each country has a different way of observing the day, Many social medial users post pictures and heartfelt messages about the women they appreciate and organize different protests and rallies in honor of every unheard woman in the world.
