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 by establishing March 8 as International Women's Day.

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 ... Black Student Alliance ... Cultural Events Board ... Gay Liberation ... New American Movement ... OYATE ... UCSU ... UMAS ... Union of Radical Political Economists ... Women's Liberation Coalition ... and the Women's Studies Program.

* The Women's Coalition with Cuba will be collecting over-the-counter medication and clean, non-battery operated toys at all IWW events.
