International Women's Day 2010

International Women’s Day 2010 Cambridge City Council Events

Posted in 2010 03 08, 2010 03 09, Eastern by womeninlondon on 20 February 2010

International Women’s Day is celebrated on 8 March each year.

It aims to promote positive change by raising awareness about problems women face in their everyday lives, and is also a chance to celebrate the achievements of women.

The stories of ordinary women as makers of history, participating in society on an equal footing with men, are central to the celebrations.

This date is commemorated at the United Nations. In many countries it is a national holiday, when women on all continents, often divided by national boundaries and by ethnic, linguistic, cultural, economic and political differences, come together to celebrate.
