LINDEN – Students at Soehl Middle School recently learned about International Women’s Day, which was observed this year on March 8.
The holiday has been observed since in the early 1900s, a time of great expansion and turbulence in the industrialized world that saw booming population growth and the rise of radical ideologies. In some countries International Women’s Day has the equivalent status of Mother’s Day where children give small presents to their mothers and grandmothers.
