International Women's Day
International Women's Day is celebrated annually on 8 March, celebrating the social, economic, cultural, and political achievements of women. The day also marks a call to action for accelerating women's equality.
IWD has occurred for well over a century, with the first IWD gathering in 1911 supported by over a million people.
Today, IWD belongs to all groups collectively everywhere. IWD is not country, group or organisation specific.
Each year on or around 8 March, we do something different at the Compass Centre to celebrate the wonderfulness of women!
