International Women’s Day 2023: Quotes and social media posts celebrating females
International Women’s Day (IWD) is being celebrated today by people all over the world to mark the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women.
Originating from the global suffrage movement, the earliest Women’s Day celebration was held in New York City on February 28, 1909.
The United Nations adopted the special day in 1977, making March 8 a mainstream global observance.

In the age of technology, many use social media to share their empowering messages.
