Dharamshala: Today, Tuesday 8 March, marks the 100th anniversary of International Women's Day, a celebration of the political, economic and social achievements of women all over the world, past and present.

The Day was first observed in 1911, and in the hundred years since then many accomplishments have been made for greater women's rights by women across the globe. This year, events will be held in honour of women in over one hundred countries.

In some places including China, Russia, Vietnam and Bulgaria, International Women's Day is a public holiday, despite the lack of many other freedoms in some of these countries for the population as a whole.

The Tibetan Women's Uprising Day will be held on March 12, commemorating those who gave their lives for the national cause in 1959, after being beaten to death by Chinese forces in Lhasa.
