  • Women's Day on Calendar

"On International Women's Day, I'm reflecting on the future we all want for our daughters: one where they can live out their aspirations without limits", the former president tweeted before most people had their morning coffee.

Women and men of all ages, races and religion took part in the annual day, which was also declared a formal holiday in the German capital Berlin. The United States of America celebrated National Women's Day on February 28, 1909 till the year 1913; in Russian Federation women also celebrated this day on the last Sunday of February in 1913.

International Women's Day is here, and to mark the annual celebration of women around the world, Barack Obama tweeted an inspiring thread. Last year's strike drew global attention as more than 5 million women took to Spain's streets to shine a light on such issues.

The minister called for more women "in leadership positions in every profession", and pledged to "value the caring professions and do more to combat domestic violence, especially against women". Organizers reportedly plan to protest against poverty and unpaid labor that often falls upon women.

What is International Women's Day

On Friday, unions, feminist groups, and left-wing political parties planned 1,400 marches and rallies in Madrid, Barcelona, and cities throughout the country, guided by the slogan, "If we stop, the world stops".

Friday is a day to celebrate the contributions made by women across the world.

Mayor Michael Müller and his cabinet have no official events planned for today, Deutsche Welle says - which may simply mean they are taking the day off work too.
