Today is the 100th anniversary of International Women's Day. First celebrated in 1911 in Austria, Denmark, Germany and Switzerland, International Women's Day is now an official holiday in Afghanistan, Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Burkina Faso, Cambodia, China, Cuba, Georgia, Guinea-Bissau, Eritrea, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Laos, Madagascar, Moldova, Mongolia, Montenegro, Nepal, Russia, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan, Uganda, Ukraine, Uzbekistan, Vietnam and Zambia. But this day dedicated to celebrating women's contributions to society is not officially recognized as a holiday by the United States government.
