Everything You Need to Know About International Women's Day on March 8

How International Women's Day Came to Be

International Women’s Day, which celebrates the achievements of women globally and calls for gender equality, is nothing new. Observed since the 1900s, it reportedly started in 1909 as National Woman's Day, thanks to the Socialist Party of America, which, “designated this day in honor of the 1908 garment workers' strike in New York, where women protested against working conditions,” according to the UN. At the time, it was observed on February 28. 
In 1910, Socialist International met in Copenhagen and established a Women’s Day, which honored the women’s rights movement, and built support for voting rights for women. Following that meeting, which was attended by women from all over the world, International Women's Day was marked for the first time on March 19 in Austria, Denmark, Germany, and Switzerland in 1911. Women went on to hold rallies in 1914 on March 8 to protest World War 1 and stand in solidarity with other activists.

New Einstein manuscripts unveiled

Dozens of manuscripts belonging to Albert Einstein, many of them unseen in public before, have been unveiled by the Hebrew University of Jerusalem.
More than 110 new documents are now on display at the university, marking the 140th anniversary of Einstein's birth.
The collection includes scientific work by the Nobel Prize winner that has never been published or researched.
It was donated by the Crown-Goodman Family Foundation and purchased from a private collector in North Carolina.
The manuscripts contain an appendix to Einstein's article on Unified Theory that had not been seen since 1930. He spent three decades attempting to unify the forces of nature into a single theory.
According to the university, the appendix was thought to be lost.

America's newest crew capsule rockets toward space station

 America's newest capsule for astronauts rocketed Saturday toward the International Space Station on a high-stakes test flight by SpaceX.
The only passenger was a life-size test dummy, named Ripley after the lead character in the "Alien" movies. SpaceX needs to nail the debut of its crew Dragon capsule before putting people on board later this year.
This latest, flashiest Dragon is on a fast track to reach the space station Sunday morning, just 27 hours after liftoff.

Good Morning from Australia
