International Women’s Day Is on March 8:

PURPOSE OF CELEBRATING INTERNATIONAL WOMEN’S DAY

  • International Women’s Day is celebrated every year worldwide on 8 March to honour women and their inspiring powers and efforts they contribute to developing a human, society, and nation. It is the day to not just promote the rights of women, but to create an exclusive space for them to nurture and transform out from the rules of domination. This day recognises the rights of women and to ignite their spirits of power and hope.
  • The word ‘woman’ conjures up the images of selfless love, care and affection. They are the reflections of limitless, equality, and gratitude. But unfortunately, across the world, women had to fight for their independence and protection of rights. Since decades, women had struggled and are still fighting to express their right to speech, to vote, to equality, to education, to income and most importantly, to freedom.
  • The objective of Women’s Day is to express love and gratitude towards women’s’ contribution to our lives and society. It honours the power and struggles of women who have broken all barriers and reached the pinnacle of success in every sphere of life. Today, women across the globe actively participate in politics, education, social work, corporate, sports, IT, research & development, innovation and diverse fields, and have left their footprints.

THE POWERFUL HISTORY BEHIND THE TRADITION OF CELEBRATING INTERNATIONAL WOMEN’S DAY

  • On March 8, 1857, some female workers in New York City in the US demanded better work conditions and better pay. According to the report of Britannica, at that time the police tried to disperse the demonstration with full force, but after many years, those women again formed an independent women’s union with all their strength.
  • The first Russian observance of International Women’s Day was in February 1913.
  • In 1914, with World War I erupting, March 8 was a day of rallies of women against war, or women expressing international solidarity at that time of war.
  • In 1917, on February 23—March 8 on the Western calendar—Russian women organized a strike, a key beginning of events resulting in the czar being toppled.
  • The United Nations celebrated International Women’s Year in 1975, and in 1977, the United Nations officially got behind the annual honouring of women’s rights known as International Women’s Day.
  • The importance of International Women’s Day (IWD) moved rapidly to promote women’s rights and final suffrage in the 20th century. As part of its campaign for the upliftment of women, the Socialist Party of America organized the first National Women’s Day in 1909, encouraged by mass meetings across America.

NOTE!

We understand that just a single day won’t do justice for promoting women’s struggles and sacrifices. Even the 365-366 days aren’t enough in a year to change the ongoing situation since past decades. Many lost their lives with struggles. There are many who are suffering the same even in this advanced world. But every motive and movement start with at least drops of love and respect. Let us start spreading the love towards them and start encouraging the importance of their presence among us.
