IWD has been observed since the early 1900's, a time of great expansion and unrest in the industrialized world that saw booming population growth and the surge of radical ideologies.
It is a time to reflect on progress made, to call for change and to celebrate acts of courage and determination by ordinary women who have played an extraordinary role in the history of their countries and communities.
Women for Women International is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization which provides women survivors of war, civil strife and other conflicts with the tools and resources to move from crisis and poverty to stability and self-sufficiency. For more details, please visit: www.womenforwomen.org
