International Women's Day celebrates the social, economic, cultural and political achievement of women.

The earliest Women's Day observance was held on February 28, 1909, in New York and was organized by the socialist party of America.

The day was marked in remembrance of the 1908 strike of the International Ladies' Garment Workers' Union (ILGWU) which was once one of the largest labor unions in the United States.

ILGWU was one of the first U.S. unions to have a primarily female membership, and a key player in the labor history of the 1920s and 1930s.

This year’s theme is #BeBoldForChange and calls for women, men and non-binary people all over the world to join forces and take ground breaking action that truly drives the greatest change for women.

Ida Odinga took some time off between caring for her ailing daughter, Rosemary Odinga who is recovering in S. Africa after a successful surgery to draft an inspiring letter to all girls out there to never give up.

Today world leaders and public figures also took time off their busy schedule to mark the day and celebrate women all over the world.

Here are just a few tweets of some of them.
