The first country to grant women the right to vote in the modern era was New Zealand in 1893.
The first woman to rule a country as an elected leader in the modern era was Sirimavo Bandaranaike of Sri Lanka, who was elected as prime minister of the island nation in 1960 and later re-elected in 1970.
The world's first novel, The Tale of Genji, was published in Japan around A.D. 1000 by female author Murasaki Shikibu.
Today is for ALL women!
