March 8, 2019, is International’s Women’s Day. International Women’s Day focuses on the movement towards women’s rights. On February 28, 1909, the Socialist Party of America organized a Women’s Day. However, the International Socialist Woman’s Conference suggested that the day would be held annually starting in 1910. The theme for 2019 International Women’s Day is #BetterforBetter. This is aimed for gender equality, a greater awareness of discrimination, and a celebration of women’s achievements. Now go out and join the march!
