8 March 2018According to historical sources, the tradition to celebrate the "Women's Day" on March 8 originated in New York. It was on this day in 1908, at the call of the New York Social Democratic Women's Organization, that a meeting was held with slogans about the equality of women. More than 15 000 women demanded reduction of the working day and equal terms of payment.

In 1913, women rallied in France, Russia, Austria, Czech Republic, Hungary, Switzerland, Holland, Germany. In 1914, the "Women's Day" was celebrated on March 8 at the same time in six countries: Austria, Denmark, Germany, the Netherlands, Russia and Switzerland.
