While the exact origins of International Women's Day are a bit of a mystery, the first proposal of an International Women's Day was at the Second Conference of Women in 1910 - as a way to spread awareness on women's inequality and to help the suffrage movement. On March 19th the following year, Austria, Denmark, Germany, and Switzerland celebrated the holiday for the first time. The next year the celebration was moved to March 8th and has since been celebrated on that day and was officially recognized by the UN in 1975. IWD is now celebrated in more than 100 countries and is an official holiday in over 25 countries. In Italy, people send Mimosa flowers to the women in their life, as a symbol of strength, sensibility, and sensitivity.
