International Women’s Day (March 8) is a global day celebrating the social, economic, cultural, and political achievements of women. The day also marks a call to action for accelerating women’s equality. IWD has occurred for well over a century, with the first IWD gathering in 1911 supported by over a million people. Today, IWD belongs to all groups collectively everywhere. IWD is not country, group or organisation specific.
To mark the occasion, many of fashion labels are celebrating with one-off pieces which not only celebrate women and girls everywhere in their designs, but which will also help to support charities that aim to improve the lives of women all around the world.
