The earliest Women’s Day observance was held on February 28, 1909, in New York; it was organized by the Socialist Party of America in remembrance of the 1908 strike of the International Ladies' Garment Workers' Union. There was no specific strike happening on March 8, despite later claims, but back in 1908, 15,000 women marched through New York City demanding voting rights, better pay and shorter working hours and a year later, the first National Woman’s Day was recognized in the US on 28 February.
