International Women's Day

International Women's Day and Purim: Finding the connection

International Women’s Day has been observed since the early 1900s.

Happy International Women's Day!

Since its first observance in the early 1900s, at a time of rapid industrialization, economic expansion, and a rise in radical ideologies, International Women’s Day has grown from its socialist roots into a global day of recognition and celebration in developed and developing countries alike.
