International Women’s Day

International Women’s Day is celebrated on the 8th of March each year.  The day originated in 1911 as an official day to recognise suffrage and the economic, social and political achievements of women. Today, International Women’s Day is celebrated throughout the world and often highlights the continuing gender inequality.

Every year there is a campaign to mark the day which women around the world join together on a bridge.

Here is a video from the 2012 JOIN WOMEN ON THE BRIDGE campaign  to celebrate the 100th anniversary.

Here is a wonderful song by Neneh Cherry called Woman
