The tradition sees men honouring their mothers, wives, girlfriends, colleagues, etc with flowers and small gifts. In some countries it has the same status as of Mother's Day where children give small presents to their mothers and grandmothers.

On 8 March 1908, 15,000 women marched through New York City demanding shorter work hours, better pay, voting rights and an end to child labour. They adopted the slogan "Bread and Roses", with bread symbolizing economic security and roses a better quality of life. In May, the Socialist Party of America designated the last Sunday in February for the observance of National Women's Day.

International Women's Day is celebrates the world over, every year on the eight day of March. It celebrates womanhood and pays tribute to the indomitable spirit of women across the globe.(SEE SPECIAL)

It's root lies in the early 1900s when oppression and inequality was spurring women to become more vocal and active in campaigning for change. The first National Woman's Day was more or less a political event, observed across the United States on 28 February. It was the initiative of Socialist Party of America.
