Each year, many International Women Day events are held worldwide – global gatherings, conferences, awards, exhibitions, festivals, concert performances, speaking events and many more.
Events are held by women’s networks, charities, educational institutions, government bodies, political parties, and of course the media and further communities. It is a day when women are recognized for their achievements without regard to divisions, whether national, ethnic, linguistic, cultural, economic or political.
