8th of March 2018
International Women's Day
Today is International Women's Day! March 8th was adopted for International Women's Day by the United Nations in 1975, but was recognised in some countries long before then, including Russia, where March 8 became a public holiday after women gained suffrage - the right to vote - in 1917. (In 1902, Australia became the second country in the world, after New Zealand in 1893, to give women the vote.) The day will be marked by events across CSIRO, including a morning tea at Marsfield.
