International Women's Day
During the International Women’s Year in 1975 United Nations has observed on 8 March as the International Women’s Day (IWD). Two years later in December 1977 the General Assembly adopted a Resolution proclaiming a United Nations Day for Women’s Rights and International Peace to be observed on any day of the year by member states in accordance with their historical and national traditions.
International Women’s Day is celebrated on 8 March every year under a global theme. The theme for this year is “Investing in Women and Girls”. This theme aims to act as a reminder for the commitment by governments in the Beijing Fourth World Conference on Women 1995, the Millennium Summit in 2000 and the International Conference on Financing Development 2002 which have all emphasized the following:
• “The significance of identifying and mobilizing funding from all sources and across all sectors.”
• “To ensure a systematic review on how women benefit from public sector expenditures, adjust budgets to ensure equality of access to public sector expenditures.”
• “That public budgeting shall be gender responsive.”
• “To ensure sufficient resources to be allocated to the national machineries for the advancement of women that can contribute to the implementation and monitoring of the Platform.” Why dedicate a day exclusively to the celebration of the Women’s Day? The General Assembly cited a few reasons:
1. A reminder that securing peace and social progress and the full enjoyment of human rights and fundamental freedoms require the active participation, equality and development of women.
2. To acknowledge the contribution of women to the strengthening of international peace and security.
3. To review how far women have come in their struggle for equality, peace and evelopment.
It is also an opportunity to unite, network and mobilize for meaningful change.
4. The IWD in itself is an instance commemorating how NGO initiatives can be taken up and developed by the UN resulting in a massive mobilization process. Historically the initiative
for the IWD came from Women’s International Democratic Federation (WIDF) and another
NGO observer backed the proposal which led finally to the adoption of the General Assembly
Resolution. Proclamation of an International Day for Women came at a time when many other factors were converging in the same direction. Women’s role in the development of the
countries were recognized. Now everyone understands the potential of a UN system for the advancement of women’s aims and aspirations. The significance of the Day is not comparable with UN Conferences that could not integrate a gender perspective prior to 1970s.
Consequently, IWD became a framework for further pushing women issues for which it has succeeded beyond expectations.
UN Conferences on Women following 1975:
1. The 1975 World Conference of the International Women’s Year in Mexico City: The first ever global inter-governmental conference specifically organized to address world issues from a gender perspective. 113 out of 133 delegations were headed by women, and 73% of the participants were women. In accordance to Mexico World Conference, the General Assembly endorsed the Declaration of Mexico and the World Plan of Action proclaiming
the years 1976-1985 as the United Nations Decade for Women.
2. The Copenhagen (Denmark) Mid Decade Conference
1980: It examined the experiences gained, the obstacles and challenges encountered and the way forward (A Five year Evaluation).
3. The Nairobi Forward Looking Strategies 1985:
This conference constituted a landmark of evaluating the UN Decade for Women. It put forward a comprehensive set of strategies for advancing the status of women world-wide. The strategies reinforced that Peace is promoted by equality of the sexes, economic equality and the universal enjoyment of basic human rights and fundamental freedoms. Its enjoyment by all requires that women are enabled to exercise their right to participate on equal footing with men in all spheres of the political, economic and social life of their respective countries, particularly in the decision-making process, while exercising their right to freedom of pinion,
expression, information and association in the promotion of international peace and co-operation.

Development (ICPD), Cairo, 5-13 September 1994, where it is stated that the empowerment and autonomy of women and the improvement of their political, social, economic and health status is a highly important end in itself. It is essential for the achievement of sustainable development.
7. World Summit for Social Development

The Social Summit was the largest gathering ever of world leaders at that time.
