March 8th, 2016 marks International Women's Day, which is a global day celebrating the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women. This falls within the month of March as we celebrate Women's History Month, honoring women and their achievements throughout the centuries.
International Women's Day has been observed since in the early 1900's. During this time, the industrialized world progressed and expanded. With that, we saw an increase population which correlated with liberal ideologies and the need for reform. International Women's Day is a collective day of global celebration and a call for gender parity.
