International Women's Day: in numbers too big to ignore

This month is the 100th anniversary of the first International Women’s Day. The day was commemorated for the first time on 19 March, 1911 in Austria, Denmark, Germany and Switzerland, following its establishment during the Socialist International meeting the prior year.

Helen Reddy's I Am Woman was the official theme song when the United Nations declared 1975 International Women's Year. Since then, International Women's Day has been celebrated on March 8. (International Men's Day is celebrated the other 364 days).
