International Women's Day
March 8

On March 8, millions of women from every continent will take part in the annual celebration of International Women's Day. This date commemorates a New York union strike of women garment workers who demonstrated against intolerable working conditions in 1910. Since 1910, it has not only signified peace and equality for women, but also a time to reflect on women's social and political rights as well as their progress and successes.

Although millions of diversified women continue to see this day as a form of celebration, Lena Lewis, a 1910 US Socialist, would prefer we imagine a day "we may eventually and forever stamp out the last vestige of male egotism and his desire to dominate over women."
