What is International Women's Day by the University of Aberdeen?

International Women's Day which falls on the 8th of March each year, has been celebrated across the world since the early 1900's. Originally, its aim was to provide a forum for women to campaign for equality and women’s rights. Over time, it has evolved and now in March each year, events are held throughout the world to recognise the progress that has been made,
to inspire women and to celebrate their achievements.
