International Women's Day has celebrated the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women since the early 1900s. Sparked by the suffragette movement, this day is marked with action from campaign groups, organisations, and individuals to create better gender parity for women and girls across the globe.

Show your support of gender equality by sending flowers featuring the colours of #IWD: purple represents justice and dignity; green symbolises hope; and white signifies purity. These colours originate from the Women's Social and Political Union (WSPU) in the UK in 1908.

#IWD FAQs

Why is there an International Women's Day?
International Women's Day (IWD) started because of the disparity in rights between men and women. While existing for centuries, at the turn of the 20th century women finally stood up to the patriarchal system that had oppressed them for so long. They initially demanded better pay, shorter working hours, and the right to vote.

Since then, IWD has evolved to not only become a day of focussed campaigning for equality, gender parity and essential healthcare rights, but also one of celebration for all that women have achieved so far. From scientific discoveries to sporting excellence, from political progression to fundamental rights previously only given to men.
What date is International Women's Day?
IWD takes place on 8th March each year.
Does International Women's Day have a colour theme?
International Women's Day (IWD) uses the colours purple, green and white. Purple represents justice and dignity; green symbolises hope; and white signifies purity. These colours originate from the Women's Social and Political Union (WSPU) in the UK in 1908.
