International Women’s Day 2020 welcomed

by Abigail Beresford

Countries around the world on Sunday celebrated International Women’s Day.

The day wasn’t recognised until 1977 by the United Nations – it recognises the equality that women deserve, and the achievements that they have made.

Marches and rallies happened all around the world in order to celebrate the day.

This year, the United Nations theme for the day was “I Am Generation Equality: Realising Women’s Rights”.
