International Women’s Day

International Women’s Day

International Women’s Day is celebrated on 8 March every year. It is a chance to celebrate women’s history, remember women’s struggles and to focus on women’s resistance across the world.

International Women’s Day was first established by Clara Zetkin, a German Marxist and feminist activist back in 1911. The link between women’s struggles and working class struggles is an important one.

There are 10 values that guide International Women's Day: Justice > Dignity > Hope > Equality > Collaboration > Tenacity > Appreciation > Respect > Empathy > Forgiveness
