International Women’s Day
Celebrated on 8 March, International Women’s Day (IWD) is the global day connecting all women around the world and inspiring them to achieve their full potential. IWD celebrates the collective power of women past, present and future.
Aurora owns and maintains the International Women’s Day website that serves as the global reference point for listing all IWD events and providing the IWD logos for download. Aurora provides annual corporate IWD related event management and marketing services.
|ABOUT INTERNATIONAL WOMEN’S DAYInternational Women’s Day hasbeen observed since in the early 1900’s, a time of great expansionand turbulence in the industrialized world that saw booming population
growth and the rise of radical ideologies.
Women’s oppression and inequality was spurring women to become
more vocal and active in campaigning for change. Then in 1908,
15,000 women marched through New York City demanding shorter
hours, better pay and voting rights.
the first National Woman’s Day (NWD) was observed across the
United States on 28 February. Women continued to celebrate
NWD on the last Sunday of February until 1913.
International Women’s Day of no fixed date was proposed
to honour the women’s rights movement and to assist in
achieving universal suffrage for women. Over 100 women
from 17 countries unanimously agreed the proposal. 3 of
these women were later elected the first women to the
Following the decision agreed at Copenhagen in 1911,International Women’s Day (IWD) was honoured the firsttime in Austria, Denmark, Germany and Switzerland on19 March. More than one million women and men attended
IWD rallies campaigning for women’s rights to work, vote,
be trained, to hold public office and end discrimination.
However less than a week later on 25 March, the tragic
‘Triangle Fire’ in New York City took the lives of more than
140 working women, most of them Italian and Jewish
immigrants. This disastrous event drew significant attention
to working conditions and labour legislation in the
United States that became a focus of subsequent
International Women’s Day events. 1911 also saw
women’s ‘Bread and Roses‘ campaign.
women observed their first International Women’s Day on
the last Sunday in February 1913. In 1914 further women across
Europe held rallies to campaign against the war and to express
for “bread and peace” in response to the death over 2 million
Russian soldiers in war. Opposed by political leaders the women
continued to strike until four days later the Czar was forced to
abdicate and the provisional Government granted women the
right to vote. The date the women’s strike commenced was
Sunday 23 February on the Julian calendar then in use in Russia.
This day on the Gregorian calendar in use elsewhere was
|1918 – 1999
Since its birth in the socialist movement, International Women’sDay has grown to become a global day of recognition andcelebration across developed and developing countries alike. Fordecades, IWD has grown from strength to strength annually. For
many years the United Nations has held an annual IWD conference
to coordinate international efforts for women’s rights and
participation in social, political and economic processes. 1975 was
designated as ‘International Women’s Year’ by the United Nations.
Women’s organisations and governments around the world have
also observed IWD annually on 8 March by holding large-scale
events that honour women’s advancement and while diligently
reminding of the continued vigilance and action required to ensure
that women’s equality is gained and maintained in all aspects of life.
2000 – 2007
Bulgaria, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Macedonia, Moldova, Mongolia,
Tajikistan, Ukraine, Uzbekistan and Vietnam. The tradition sees men
honouring their mothers, wives, girlfriends, colleagues, etc with flowers
and small gifts. In some countries IWD has the equivalent status of
Mother’s Day where children give small presents to their mothers and
The new millennium has witnessed a significant change and attitudinal
shift in both women’s and society’s thoughts about women’s equality
and emancipation. Many from a younger generation feel that ‘all the
battles have been won for women’ while many feminists from the
1970’s know only too well the longevity and ingrained complexity of
patriarchy. With more women in the boardroom, greater equality in
legislative rights, and an increased critical mass of women’s visibility
as impressive role models in every aspect of life, one could think that
women have gained true equality. The unfortunate fact is that women
are still not paid equally to that of their male counterparts, women still
are not present in equal numbers in business or politics, and globally
women’s education, health and the violence against them is worse than
that of men.
However, great improvements have been made. We do have female
astronauts and prime ministers, school girls are welcomed into university,
women can work and have a family, women have real choices. And so
the tone and nature of IWD has, for the past few years, moved from
being a reminder about the negatives to a celebration of the positives.
|Annually on 8 March, thousands of events are held throughout the worldto inspire women and celebrate their achievements. While there aremany large-scale initiatives, a rich and diverse fabric of local activityconnects women from all around the world ranging from political rallies,
business conferences, government activities and networking events
through to local women’s craft markets, theatric performances, fashion
parades and more.
Many global corporations have also started to more actively support
IWD by running their own internal events and through supporting
external ones. For example, on 8 March search engine and media
giant Google even changes its logo on its global search pages.
Corporations like HSBC host the UK’s largest and longest running
IWD event delivered by women’s company Aurora. Last year Nortel
sponsored IWD activities in over 20 countries and thousands of
women participated. Nortel continues to connect its global workforce
though a coordinated program of high-level IWD activity, as does
Accenture both virtually and offline. Accenture supports more than
2,000 of its employees to participate in its International Women’s Day
activities that include leadership development sessions, career workshops
and corporate citizenship events held across six continents – in eight cities
in the United States and in Argentina, Australia, Brazil, Canada, Germany,
India, Ireland, Italy, Japan, Spain, South Africa and the UK. Accenture
also coordinated am IWD webcast featuring stories about Accenture
women worldwide that ran uninterrupted for 30 hours across 11 time
zones via Accenture’s intranet. Year on year IWD is certainly increasing
in status. The United States even designates the whole month of
March as ‘Women’s History Month’.
So make a difference, think globally and act locally !! Make everyday
International Women’s Day. Do your bit to ensure that the future for
girls is bright, equal, safe and rewarding.
