March 8, has been earmarked to celebrate the social, economic, cultural, and political achievements of women across the globe annually.

International Women’s Day, as it is called, focuses on addressing gender inequality in the world. In view of this, the theme for this year’s celebration is “Break the Bias.”

To commemorate the day, social media users have taken to Twitter to share the achievements chalked by women in various sectors and the need to create equal opportunities for both men and women.

Some women shared stories of instances when they were treated unfairly just because of their gender. Also, users encouraged women to continue to be steadfast in their quest for gender equality.

Clara (Eibner) Zetkina, a German is said to have proposed the idea of an International Women’s Day in 1910.

Her restless defence of women’s working rights, according to the Migrant Labour General Workers Union International (MLGWUI), made it possible for International Women’s Day to be accepted by the United Nations.
