International Women’s Day is celebrated on March 8 every year. It is a focal point in the movement for women’s rights. After the Socialist Party of America organised a Women’s Day on February 28, 1909 in New York, the 1910 International Socialist Woman’s Conference suggested a Women’s Day be held annually. Wikipedia
The Town of Collingwood’s first annual International Women’s Day Forum will bring the people of Collingwood and the surrounding communities together to inspire and advocate for the advancement of gender equality.
