International Womens Day

IWDOn the 8th March every year International Women's Day (IWD) is celebrated across the world. IWD has been observed since the early 1900's, a woman named Clara Zetkin proposed the idea that every year in every country there should be a celebration on the same day to press for women's demands for equal rights.

International Women's Day is about thinking globally and acting locally – coming up with innovative ways to spread the word about women's rights across the world within your local community.

Women Making a Difference have celebrated IWD in a range of ways over the years; in 2011 we hosted a 'World Café' at the Senedd with Rosemary Butler AM. Stories of inspirational women were told and participants voted on a campaign to take forward: sustaining education for all. To download a booklet of the stories told at the event click here.
