International Women’s Day is an originally socialist movement that is marked on March 8th in annual calendars. The interesting aspect about this day is the way the method of celebration has changed throughout the years and in different parts of the world.
It was originally called International Working Women’s Day and was celebrated as an empowering political and social movement. Arguable counter-productively, it is currently being celebrated similarly to Valentine’s Day where where men show their love and affection to women and shower them with gifts.
