   IWD was first marked in 1911 in many countries to protest women's working conditions. In 1977, the United Nations invited all member states to designate a day as International Women's Day and in most countries it is celebrated on March 8.
   The federal theme for 1999 is "Going Strong - Celebrating Older Women".
   If you, or your organization, are planning an International Women's Day event, let us know. Send us the details at webcoord@swc-cfc.gc.ca and we will post the information on our IWD events page.
