As the UN puts it, International Women’s Day is “the story of ordinary women as makers of history; it is rooted in the centuries-old struggle of women to participate in society on an equal footing with men”. It was marked internationally for the first time in 1911 when one million women and men attended rallies in Austria, Denmark, Germany and Switzerland demanding the right to vote, hold public office, work and have equal pay.
