International Women’s Day or colloquially, March 8th (Eighth March), dedicated to women and is celebrated every year on the same date. As International Women’s Day, March eighth, was adopted in 1917, although the first National Woman’s Day was celebrated on February 28th in 1909 in the USA. This day originated as a day of struggle for economic, political and social equality of women and men. Switzerland was the last country in Europe to introduce the right to vote to women (1972).
