International Women's Day is celebrated in many countries around the world. It is a day when women are recognized for their achievements without regard to divisions, whether national, ethnic, linguistic, cultural, economic or political. Officially recognized by the United Nations in 1977, International Women's Day first emerged from the activities of labor movements at the turn of the twentieth century in North America and across Europe.

FSC celebrates and recognizes International Women's Day to honor the achievements and contributions of women worldwide, promote gender equality, and raise awareness regarding the social, economic, cultural, and political challenges that women continue to face.  It serves as a reminder of the ongoing fight for women's rights and empowerment, as well as a call to action for gender parity in all aspects of society.
