world without women

On March 8, people around the world observe International Women's Day - a day to commemorate the struggle for women's rights and celebrate the political, social, economic and cultural achievements of women throughout history.

Although International Women's Day was only adopted by the United Nations in 1975, it was marked for the first time in New York in the early 1900s.

Over a century later, the celebration's birthplace marked International Women's Day in a suitably grand fashion, with women nationwide invited to participate in A Day Without a Woman.
