International Women's Day

International Women’s Day occurs each year on March 8 and celebrates the achievements of women worldwide in all spheres of life. Originated by the international socialist movement, the holiday was long observed by the Soviet Union and later came to be celebrated by the feminist movement and the United Nations. UCLA commemorates International Women's Day 2024 with a weeklong celebration of accomplished Bruins.
