International Women's Day

Event date: 
8 March 2012 - 12:01am - 11:59pm
Event location: 
Nationwide

The 8th March is International Women's Day, a time when we remember the sacrifices and bravery of women who fought for women's rights, consider the rights we have today, but also recognise that the fight for women's liberation is far from over.

From the Suffragette movement in the 19th and 20th century to the Ford Dagenham strikes in 1968, women have increasingly made steps towards equality.

Annually on 8 March, thousands of events are held throughout the world to inspire women and celebrate achievements and equality.
