The origins of International Women’s Day have been traced to labour strikes on March 8 in both 1857 and 1908, in New York City. As women textile workers fought for better working conditions, other issues arose, and so the first IWD was celebrated on March 8, 1911.
IWD is recognized around the world as a day to celebrate women’s progress toward social and economic equality — while acknowledging that women do not yet have full equality anywhere in the world.
Watch for the IWD Flag flying at City Hall the weekend of March 7 to March 10! Check this facebook page, Gender Issues Centre, and the Women’s Centre website for news on IWD activities.
