The International Day of Women of African Descent has been celebrated since July 25, 1992, when women from 32 countries in Latin America and the Caribbean gathered in the Dominican Republic to protest against gender-based violence.
The UN General Assembly proclaimed the years 2015-2024 as the International Decade for People of African Descent.
The purpose of the date is to strengthen the social, cultural, civil, economic and political rights of Afro-descendants and their full and equal participation in all aspects of society.
