International Women's Day is a worldwide celebration of "the economic, political and social achievements of women past, present and future. In some places like China, Russia, Vietnam and Bulgaria, International Women's Day is a national holiday." The official United Nations theme for International Women's Day 2013 is "A promise is a promise: Time for action to end violence against women."
