Today in Feminist History: International Women’s Day

International Women’s Day
has been celebrated for almost a century around the world. While it remains a more popular (and government sponsored) holiday abroad, many organizations and activists in the US also celebrate it.

International Women’s Day has been observed since in the early 1900’s, a time of great expansion and turbulence in the industrialized world that saw booming population growth and the rise of radical ideologies.
