International Women's DaY, originally called International Working Women’s Day is marked on March 8 every year. Nowadays this is a major day of global celebration of women. In different regions the focus of the celebrations ranges from general celebration of respect, appreciation and love towards women to a celebration for women's economic, political and social achievements.
Tuesday, 8TH March 2011 will be the 100th anniversary of International Women’s Day. For the second year running, Women for Women International is organising the ‘Join Me on the Bridge’ campaign. On this day, women, men and children around the world will meet on bridges to show solidarity and support for women who are helping their war torn nations to lay down arms, resolve their conflicts, and move toward a peaceful future. The main campaign is for women around the globe to live in a more secure world, have the chance of earning a sustainable living, and - now more than ever - have an equal voice at the decision-making tables in building the bridges of peace for our future.
