It was 1911 when the first International Women’s Day occurred. Back then, it was supported by one million people. More than one century after, the 8th of March is celebrated around the world. In 2019, WPL joins organisations globally in order to drive the change towards a better balance for a better world and to celebrate the role of extraordinary women in advancing society.
