When was Womens Day 2015 ?
Very few of us actually know why do we all celebrate women’s day every year and not everyone is aware of when is International Women’s Day. Well, 8th March is the date when people observe International Women’s Day around the world and in 2015 it falls on a Sunday.
It all started in August,1910 when a conference for women was held in Copenhagen, Denmark. It was that day when a famous German socialist called Luise Zietz offered a proposal. That proposal was about specifying a day in the entire year to celebrate the rights, equality and sufferings of women throughout the past, future and present history of the world. Even then, women were celebrating this day on random dates each year, on 19th March in 1911 across Germany, Austria, Denmark and Switzerland, last Sunday of February in 1913 in Russia, but none of them were observed on 8th March. Finally, on the memorable year of 1914, leaders of the International Women’s Association declared 8th March to be that year’s Women’s Day and that’s how March the 8th became an international celebration for women.
