International Women's Day is about celebrating the achievements of women past, present, and future.

The same "over-estimate" is apparent in the United States, where people think women will be paid equally with men by 2028, whereas the current rate of progress suggests the gap won't be closed until 2059.

In August 1910, it was proposed in the "women's office" of the Socialist Democratic party of Germany that every year, International Women's Day be observed.
