So what is International Women's Day? It's held on 8th March every year and each year celebrates different themes.  Last year the theme was' Time for Action to End Violence Against Women'.  For this year 2014, the 103rd year it's been held, the day has the theme 'Inspiring Change' and celebrates the Social, Political and Economic achievements of women everywhere. 

For many different cultures it's a chance to shine a spotlight on real women's issues with different campaigns and initatives for different regions focusing on important issues such as education for young females for example. 

For lots of people it's a day that is unwelcome as they feel that women in today’s society have all the equality they could ever need which of course is entirely wrong.  

If you'd like to find out more about why this day is still so very important for women around the world today (there are some shocking statistics) read more here.
