It was called National Women's Day, and it was held on February 28. The following year, Social International founded Women’s Day in Copenhagen to celebrate those working women’s rights and universal suffrage.

In 1911, Austria, Denmark, Germany, and Switzerland celebrated the first official International Women's Day on 19 March. More than a million people attended rallies focused on suffrage, advocacy, education, and workers ’rights. In the next few years, several countries in Europe marked the March 8 holiday.
