Women’s Day was first celebrated in the United States in 1909 as a tribute to labor issues. Historically, the day acknowledges the struggles for social and economic justice that women face. It faded from popularity in the United States while gaining traction in Socialist and Communist countries. In 1977 under the auspices of the United Nations, International Women’s Day Celebrations returned to the west.”
