On March 8th every year we celebrate Women’s Day. This day marks the resilience, determination, and strength of women around the world to put an end to universal female suffrage. It was started in 1908 when 15,000 women marched through New York City demanding shorter working hours, better pay, and the right to vote. The idea to make it international came from Clara Zetkin, a communist activist and advocate for women’s rights.
