A Celebration of Women's Rights

In 1975, the United Nations celebrated its inaugural International Women's Day. Each year's celebration has a unique theme. The 2020 theme was "I am Generation Equality: Realizing Women’s Rights.”

International Women's Day had its beginnings in the socialist and communist movements in recognition of working women. The first observation was in 1909.
