Since its inception, The Feminist Peace Network has encouraged women around the world to participate in International Women’s Day.
Please visit this page for more on how IWD has been celebrated throughout the world in past years, with current year updates beginning in February.
Here are some websites with more information about International Women’s Day
- The United Nations
- ISIS/IWD Australia
- Million Women Rise
- Teaching IWD
- ESL Lesson Plans for IWD
- Words of Women
- A Salute To Women’s Resistance
InternationalWomensDay.com is run by Aurora GCM Limited, a private company, and while they have heeded our call not to refer to themselves as the official IWD website, they still use the phrase “The International Women’s Day” to describe their website which simply isn’t true, there is no such thing and it is a wholly unacceptable affront to women everywhere for a non-public entity to use International Women’s Day as an opportunity for cause branding.
InternationalWomensDay.org, run by the Women’s Information Network (WIN) seems to be geared primarily towards promoting WIN-run for-profit events.
