On Wednesday, March 8, the world celebrated International Women’s Day (IWD) with the 2017 campaign #BeBoldForChange. This year, the campaign is aimed to “call on the masses or call on yourself to help forge a better working world — a more gender inclusive world.”
The celebration began in 1908, when 15,000 women marched through New York City for shorter hours, better pay and voting rights.
