The International Women’s Day 2014 (IWD) will be held on March 8. IWD is a day when people show respect and appreciation for women. It is also a day when people mark achievements of women. Many girls and women in the world are treated badly and unequally compared to men. One of the themes for this year’s IWD is “Inspiring Change”. This is to come up with ideas and ways to encourage women to advance and be more equal to men. The first IWD was celebrated on March 19, 1911 in Austria, Denmark, Germany, and Switzerland.
