International Women’s Day 2021:
The International Women’s Day is observed on March 8 every year to celebrate the achievements of women in various fields of whether national, economical, social, political or linguistic and also to make people aware about the women’s rights.
It was first emerged in 1911, when women came on streets speaking for their rights and demanded for fewer working hours with a better remuneration and also a right to vote.
This year the theme for the International Women’s Day is “#ChangeToChallenge.” Which aims at bringing gender equality, spreading awareness about women’s rights and celebrating their achievements.
