Maria Fotopoulos: Time to celebrate women
International Women’s Day was March 8 and is celebrated all through the weekend by many around the world. In the U.S., the day complements a month-long recognition of women through Women’s History Month.
The day has been observed since the early 1900s, and one of its historic moments was in 1908 when 15,000 women took to the New York City streets, demanding better pay, a shorter work day and the vote — the latter they won in 1920.
