International Women's Week has a long history. Both within and
outside of the Unites States, women across the globe celebrated International
Women's Day at least as early as 1909. In late 1974, the United Nations
responded to the growing liberation struggles of women all over the world

The University of Colorado at Boulder participates in this movement by
hosting our own IWW. Our first event was held on March 3-8, 1975.
IWW 1975 was a collaboration between many diverse groups on campus, being
co-sponsored by: Committee for Asian-American Brothers & Sisters

... New American Movement ... OYATE ... UCSU ... UMAS ... Union of Radical
Political Economists ... Women's Liberation Coalition ... and the Women's
