The first ever International Women's Day was celebrated March 8th, 1909 in New York City. This day was used by women to rally together to fight for their human rights. Now, this day is celebrated globally as a reminder of how far women have come, but how far there is still to go before total equality of the genders. Use today to celebrate all of the amazing mother's, sister's, aunt's, cousin's and daughter's in your life!
