KBOO's special programming for March 8, International Womxn's Day.

International Womxn's Day (8 March) is a global day celebrating the economic, political and social achievements of women past, present and future. In some places like China, Russia, Vietnam and Bulgaria, International Womxn's Day is a national holiday.

Suffragettes campaigned for women's right to vote. The word 'Suffragette' is derived from the word "suffrage" meaning the right to vote. International Womxn's Day honors the work of the Suffragettes, celebrates Womxn's success, and reminds of inequities still to be redressed. The first International Womxn's Day event was run in 1911.
