World celebrates 100th anniversary of Women’s Day

                                                                   
The World is celebrating March 8 as the 100th anniversary of ‘International Women’s Day’. It is a day when women are recognised for their achievements without regard to divisions, whether national, ethnic, linguistic, cultural, economic or political. It is also the first International Women’s Day for UN Women, created by the UN General Assembly on July 2, 2010.
                                                         
The official theme of International Women’s Day 2011 is “Equal access to education, training and science and technology: Pathway to decent work for women”.
                                                                          
In 1975, during International Women’s Year, the United Nations began celebrating International Women’s Day on 8 March. Two years later, in December 1977, the General Assembly adopted a resolution proclaiming a United Nations Day for Women’s Rights and International Peace to be observed on any day of the year by member states, in accordance with their historical and national traditions.
