Beginnings of International Women’s Day

International Women's Day

In 1911, Over a million people gathered to attend rallies and discuss issues for International Women’s Day.

Before 1911, the right for women’s stayed mostly in separated countries. New York saw women march in protest for better pay, shorter hours, and voting rights. Different protests like these happened in different parts of the world. Then in 1911, Europe declared March 19 as its International Women’s Day. People gathered to discuss issues, like voting for women. Sadly, World War I started shortly thereafter, but women have still gathered to celebrate women’s day.
