In 2024, International Women's Day is scheduled for Friday. At the same time, draft law No. 9009 was registered in the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine on February 13, 2023. Its purpose is to replace the celebration of March 8 with February 25, as the Day of Ukrainian Women, in honor of Lesya Ukrainka's birthday.


The text of the relevant draft law (No. 9009) is published on the Parliament's website.


So, will there be a day off on International Women's Day? Let's find out further in the article.

The issue of abolishing International Women's Day on March 8 as an official holiday is still being discussed, and as of early 2024, it remains a recognized public holiday in Ukraine.

Will there be a day off on March 8 in Ukraine?


In 2024, International Women's Day falls on a day off, according to Article 73 of the Labor Code. However, due to the extension of martial law in Ukraine until May 13, 2024, Ukrainians will not be able to take advantage of additional days off in accordance with the legislation on labor relations under martial law.


Therefore, Ukrainians will not receive an additional day off on March 8.

We remind you! American actress Megan Fox posted a photo online and made an inappropriate "joke" about Ukrainian women, for which she received a barrage of criticism. Read how the Transformers star insulted Ukrainian women and why she was accused of xenophobia in our previous article.
