Prathidhwani Women's Forum - International Women's Day Celebrations 2019


International Women’s Day commemorates the movement for women's rights. Over 15,000 garment workers in New York, mainly immigrant Jewish women who worked in sweatshops, went on strike for better working hours, wages and conditions. The first International Women’s Day was observed on March 8 , 1914 and was suggested by the 1910 International Woman's Conference and was further adopted by UN in 1975.


The International Women's Day 2019 campaign theme of #BalanceforBetter is a call-to-action for driving gender balance across the world.
