International women’s day is celebrated on the 8th of March every year. It is a focus of attention in the movement for women’s rights. It was the first time when the Socialist Party of America arranged women’s day on 28th February 1909 in New York City.

But in the year 1914 international Women's Day was held on March 8 in Germany, maybe because that day was a Sunday, and from that day onwards it is always celebrated on 8th of March in all countries as it was dedicated to women's right to vote, in Germany.
