International women’s day is celebrated on the 8th of March.
It has been celebrated since 1911.
It started around the time when there were lots of women campaigning for the rights to vote. For a long time, only men were allowed to vote because people thought that men were the head of the household and voted for the house.Around the time of 1911 there were lots of rallies and some women were arrested for trying to make change.
The theme for international women’s day this year is Choose to Challenge the stereotypes and things that still aren’t equal between men and women.
International women’s day celebrates the achievements of women and raises awareness about equality.
It’s not only girls who can celebrate international women’s day, boys can celebrate it too. I believe that women can do anything men can do.
So what are you going to do to celebrate international women’s day this year
