60+ Empowering International Women's Day Wishes and Quotes for 2024

Celebrating the extraordinary women in our lives—be it mothers, wives, daughters, sisters, grandmothers, friends or colleagues—is something we cherish every day. Yet, when International Women's Day rolls around, our enthusiasm and recognition reach new heights. This special day isn't just about acknowledging the personal milestones of the women we know and love—it's also a nod to the generations of women who have paved the way for equality, freedom, and success. 

When is International Women's Day?

International Women's Day is celebrated annually on March 8th—a pivotal moment in women's rights history. On March 8th, 1917, women textile workers in Petrograd, Russia, led a strike demanding better working conditions, food shortage relief, and an end to World War I. Adopted globally in 1975 by the United Nations, March 8th serves as a day to honour women's achievements, advocate for gender equality, and inspire action towards a more inclusive world. 

How to celebrate International Women's Day?

If you're thinking about celebrating International Women's Day with the special women in your life, chances are you already hold them in high regard all year round. But IWD creates better opportunities to start the year on a note of acknowledgement and celebration. For those closest to you, consider organising a pampering spa day, a weekend getaway, or sharing a relaxing meal dedicated to celebrating her achievements and presence in your life. A thoughtful gift can add a personal touch to the occasion as well.

Celebrating International Women's Day in the workplace can also be both fun and meaningful with just a few creative activities, such as bringing everyone together for a cosy bubble tea party during break time, sending a simple thank-you video or heartfelt thank-you cards. Additionally, sending meaningful gifts from women-led brands can also show your support for women's achievements and contributions, both in your network and the wider community.
