International Women’s Day

International Women’s Day (or International Women’s Rights Day) is an international observance celebrated every year on March 8. It emphasizes the importance of the fight for women’s rights, particularly for their emancipation, recalling social, economic, and political achievements and drawing attention to issues such as gender equality, reproductive rights, discrimination, and violence against women. It is associated with the International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women, established on December 17, 1999, and observed every year on November 25. It has been celebrated in the United States since 1909, in some European countries since 1911, and in Italy since 1922.

Often, in common parlance, in the media, and in advertising, it is mistakenly referred to as Women’s Day, although it is more accurate to call it International Women’s Day, as the underlying motivation for the observance is not a celebration but reflection.
