Women’s Day was first celebrated in 1911 in Austria, Germany, Switzerland and Denmark, and more than a million women and men attended those rallies that required women to vote in elections, to allow them to hold public positions, to have the right to work and vocational education. It began to be celebrated in Serbia in 1914.
