My boyfriend's family celebrates this day and just wondering if anyone else on here does. His mom says it's a big deal in Kazakstan, where they used to live during the 1990's.

Is this a big deal in other parts of the world? If so, how do you celebrate?

Pretty under-celebrated where I live, but I'm going to kick back a couple of libations with some friends anyway.

Unfortunately, we don't do a festival, although it is important to celebrate, still we shortcoming in the gender disparity and underrepresented woman in academia, we still have some segregation. I am just curious about how they celebrate? actually, I am volunteering in organizing women in engineering, I am trying to solicit funding, hopefully, we can find supporters!

I just found some ideas on the question: How do woman celebrate international women day?:

" Take the day off, if possible. There is a nationwide protest in which women are encouraged to take the day off. ...
Donate to a local women's shelter. You can donate money, clothing, food, or your time. ...
Participate in a protest. ...
Look for marathons or walks. ...
Volunteer."

I don't know if there are any other ideas outside the box. P.S.International women day was launched in Germany in 1914 to give the women the right to vote.
