Tuesday is a day to celebrate women and the achievements they've made in America. Gloria Steinem, world-renowned feminist, journalist and activist says "The story of women's struggle for equality belongs to no single feminist nor to any one organization but to the collective efforts of all who care about human rights." The website says "make International Women's Day your day and do what you can to truly make a positive difference for women."

The day is full of history of the women who first demanded equality
The day has a lot of history it was first celebrated in 1911. In 1975 the United Nations declared March 8th to be International Women's Day. That date was chosen, according to the BBC to recognize and commemorate an event in 1917. That's when women from Russia held a strike to demand peace, bread and the right to vote.
