International Women's Day is celebrated annually on Saturday 8th March.
Thousands of events are being held around the world by women from different ethnic, political, social, and economic backgrounds who join together to celebrate the achievements of women past and present, identify the challenges that lie ahead, and inspire change.
There are many events taking place across Ireland. There is even a pop-up soapbox outside the GPO in Dublin from 12pm - 4pm where you can air your views!
You don't even have to leave home to take part in International Women's Day.
