International Women's Day is marked on March 8 every year. In different regions the focus of the celebrations ranges from general celebration of respect, appreciation and love towards women to a celebration for women's economic, political and social achievements.

Started as a Socialist political event, the holiday blended in the culture of many countries, primarily Eastern Europe, Russia, and the former Soviet bloc. In some regions, the day lost its political flavor, and became simply an occasion for men to express their love for women in a way somewhat similar to a mixture of Mother's Day and Valentine's Day.

In other regions, however, the political and human rights theme designated by the United Nations runs strong, and political and social awareness of the struggles of women worldwide are brought out and examined in a hopeful manner.

2013

The UN theme for International Women's Day 2013 is "A promise is a promise: Time for action to end violence against women," while International Women's Day 2013 has declared the year's theme as The Gender Agenda: Gaining Momentum.

Please keep it up.
Its a very important mission.
Women are so much discriminated by males all over the World; but most of them in India, and 54 Muslim countries of the World.
Even today, Women in Saudi Arabia are not allowed to drive.
Women In Saudi Arabia can't leave home without fully coverd from head to toe.
In Islam, by the ordain of Koran, women inherit 50% to their male siblings.
Males have a right to administer corporal punishment to one's wife in Koran.
These women need foremost attention.
Muslim girls rights should be strengthen as much as can be.
Please extend your support to these poor neglected lot of humanity in Muslim countries as much as you can.
