This day, men and boys bring flowers or gifts on this day to their mothers, grandmothers, wives, aunties, sisters, daughters, nieces, friends…as a sign of respect and appreciation.
But this day is also a celebration of women’s strive to acquire social equality and peace, as instituted by United Nations. International Women’s Day was first observed as a popular event after 1977 when the United Nations General Assembly invited member states to proclaim March 8 as the UN Day for women’s rights and world peace.
