International Women’s Day Centenary 1911 – 2011

International Women’s DayCelebrate 100 years of International Women’s Day on March 8, 2011.  The event began in 1911 with 15,000 women marching through New York City demanding shorter hours, better pay and voting rights.

Today, we still battle for equal pay and equal rights but this day is about celebrating a woman’s right to choose and that doesn’t only mean striving to be the CEO of a company but also the choice of being a single mother, staying at home with a child or not having children at all.

There are 233 events in Australia held throughout March commemorating International Women’s Day so go and show your support.
