In 1910, Copenhagen hosted the second International Congress of Working Women. The concept of an International Women's Day was proposed by Clara Zetkin. Since then, March 8 has been designated as International Women's Day to honor the social, economic, cultural, and political accomplishments of women worldwide. The day's agenda also offers a call to action for increasing gender parity and outlining agendas and goals for reaching these targets.
Our sponsored children celebrated Women's Day with the important women in their lives to acknowledge their contribution to their lives with flowers.
