For over a hundred years now, International Women’s Day has been a day to honor the political and social accomplishments of women worldwide. Beginning in 1908 as a celebratory day for women in Europe, it is now a globally recognized holiday celebrated by hundreds of countries around the world.
According to the official International Women’s Day 2011 website, “The tradition sees men honouring their mothers, wives, girlfriends, colleagues, etc with flowers and small gifts. In some countries IWD has the equivalent status of Mother’s Day where children give small presents to their mothers and grandmothers.”
