International Women's Day Celebration
March 8, 2019 | 6 pm to 8 pm | San Francisco
International Women's Day (March 8) is a global day celebrating the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women. The day also marks a call to action for accelerating gender parity.
International Women's Day (IWD) has occurred for well over a century, with the first March 8 IWD gathering in 1911 supported by over a million people in Austria, Denmark, Germany and Switzerland. Prior to this the Socialist Party of America, United Kingdom's Suffragists and Suffragettes, and further groups campaigned for women's equality.

Women's History Month Awards Ceremony and Reception
COMING March 2019 | San Francisco City Hall
March is nationally recognized as Women’s History Month. In 1980, a group of women came together in Santa Rosa, California to form the National Women’s History Project, a coalition that successfully lobbied Congress and the White House to designate the week of March 8th (International Women’s Day) as National Women’s History Week. In 1987, Congress expanded the celebration, resulting in the entire month of March being declared National Women’s History Month. Since 1996, the San Francisco Commission and Department on the Status of Women, in partnership with the Mayor and Board of Supervisors, have celebrated this month with a public ceremony to recognize the contributions of women in the community.
The FRIENDS of the Commission on the Status of Women sponsors the annual reception. This event is free and open to the public. Photos from past events may be view at the FRIENDS' photo gallery.
