International Women’s Day 2024

International Women’s Day (IWD) is recognised on 8 March and is one of the most significant days during Women’s History Month. The date corresponds to an 1857 protest in New York City, where textile workers demanded a shorter working day and better wages. This watershed moment still resonates through global and grassroots social emancipation movements today.
