The first IWD was observed on 28 February 1909 in the United States. There are many relevant events happened relating to this special day as women all around the world strived for better working environment, and better pay. Many countries declared IWD as official holiday, among them are China, Russia, Cuba, Italy, and Vietnam.
In many countries, to appreicate the women of their lives, men are giving flowers or small gifts to their mothers, wives or girlfriends. One would agree that it is not an easy task for a woman these days trying to balance being a woman, wife, mother, while pursuing a career. So let's shower ourselves with something good on IWD, be it small or big, cheap or expensive.
