EN [ENA] Today called International Women's Day, initially it was celebrated by various countries on different days. Its origins do not stop generating confusion and there are the most diverse opinions about it: this is how it was born and what is expected for its anniversary.

International Women's Rights Day occurs on 8 March each year to remember both the social, economic and political achievements and the discrimination and violence that women have been and still are, unfortunately the subject in almost all countries of the world. After the Second World War, the United Nations organization extended the reach of feminism (as a "doctrine that has as its object the extension of women's rights and role in society" ), globally. They formed a Commission within the United Nations on the status of women in 1946 which later joined the United Nations Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC). In 1948 the United Nations promulgated the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.

International Women's Day is the time to reflect on the progress made, to ask for change and to celebrate acts of courage and determination by ordinary women, who have played an extraordinary role in the history of their countries and their community. The world has made unprecedented progress, but no country has achieved gender equality. Fifty years ago we landed on the moon; in the past decade, we have discovered new human ancestors and photographed a black hole for the first time. Meanwhile, legal restrictions have prevented 2.7 billion women from accessing the same choice of jobs as men. Fewer than 25% of MPs were women, as of 2019. One in three women still face gender-based violence. We claim 2020 for women and girls around the world.
