A workshop timed to International Women's Day will be held in Art Tower Gallery on March 3-4.

International Women's Day is celebrated in many countries around the world on March 3. The holiday seeks to celebrate social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women.

International Women's Day has been celebrated by the United Nations on 8 March since 1975.

The idea of celebration was put forward for the first time by Clara Zetkin, German activist, at an International Conference of women-socialists, held in Copenhagen.

The first countries celebrating this day were Germany, Austria, Switzerland and Denmark.

This holiday has started to be marked in Azerbaijan since 1917.
