International Women’s Day is celebrated annually on 8th March and is a global day celebrating the economic, political and social achievements of women past, present and future.

International Women's Day

The day honours the work of the Suffragettes, celebrates women’s success, and reminds us of inequities still to be redressed.

The first International Women’s Day event was run in 1911, and since the new millennium many global corporations have also started to more actively support International Women’s Day by holding their own events.

Over the next week and in the run up to International Women’s Day, we’ll be showcasing some of the amazing female talent we have at Asda.
