International Women's Day 2021 | IWDA

We have come a long way. Whereas once women couldn’t vote, we’re now leading countries. While we once faced restrictions on where we worked, we’re now running corporations. In countries such as Australia we have rights our grandmothers could only have dreamed about, but we still don’t have complete equality. And the majority of the world’s women aren’t anywhere near as close to that goal as we are.

More than 100 years ago, that first march was about ending harmful workplace conditions, equal rights, equal pay, and an end to exploitation. And sadly, those aims are still relevant today.

What is International Women’s Day and why does it matter? Find out about the day's history and how you can get involved.

General information

The Commission was established by a unanimous vote of the Erie County Legislature in 1987 to remove gender based inequities for women. In 1988, the Commission became a department of Erie County government. The Commission conducts policy studies; analyzes current legislation, programs and trends affecting women; develops collaborative programs with local and regional organizations and public officials; provides educational awareness; and recommends measures to coordinate, consolidate or expand the resources and services available to women in Erie County. Please visit our website at www.erie.gov/csw for a listing of resources available for women at a national level, as well as here in Erie County!
