International Woman Day

International Women's Day (IWD), originally called International Working Women’s Day, is marked on March 8 every year. The UN theme for International Women’s Day 2012 is Empower Women – End Hunger and Poverty. In many countries, International Women's Day is an occasion to honor and praise women for their accomplishments.

I t was not recognized in our country as national holiday or national event, some time ago it was considered as socialist linked event, and was banned.

Happy Woman Day to all woman in Penang.
