International Women's Day celebrates the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women globally. UN theme for International Women's Day 2020 that is celebrated on the 8th of March every year, is "I am Generation Equality: Realizing Women's Rights".
On this day, women from different nations, political background, culture, and economic status join together to promote awareness about their rights. They aim to break the stereotypes and the restrictions society has placed on them. On the occasion, Google also celebrated womanhood with a special doodle. At the same time, Prime Minister Narendra Modi and President Ram Nath Kovind have saluted women.
