In a letter published online, Duda said that women's day was "a good opportunity to express appreciation and respect for the achievements of Polish women, for their strength and at the same time their sensitivity, and to thank them for all the good we get from them".

Duda said that as Poland celebrates the centenary of its independence in 2018 it also celebrates the 100th year that Polish women have had the right to vote.

International Women’s Day was initiated by US socialists in 1910 to commemorate the victims of civil and worker’s rights movements in New York.
