The International Women’s Day is a major day marking the economic, social and political achievements of women. It was started in 1909 in the United States, and it is its 100th anniversary this year. It is an official holiday in many countries around the world, and observed by men giving the women in their lives - mothers, wives, friends, daughters, colleagues - flowers and small gifts.
Flowers will be handed to women in the Memorial Union on March 5, 6 and 9, as well as at the International Center on March 9. Please join us for this event and help us make the International Women’s Day celebration a success!
