    Each year on 8 March, individuals and organisations across the world gather to celebrate International Women’s Day (IWD) in honour of the significant achievements that women have made throughout the course of history.

    The day was ratified by the United Nations in 1977, but has been observed around the world since the turn of the 20th Century.

    BAPS Swaminarayan Sanstha’s celebration of IWD represents its on-going commitment to women and matters of importance to women, as inspired and guided by His Holiness Pramukh Swami Maharaj and His Holiness Mahant Swami Maharaj.
