This day called proudly as “International Women’s day” celebrates the unique strength of women that is hard to find in the entire human existence. It’s a global day and is celebrated in most parts of the world to take conscious cognizance of the unprecedented achievements of women, irrespective of which section of the society they belong to. It was the labor moment of the twentieth century in North America that came out to be the time when this day emerged.
That was the time which proved to be a turning point in the history of womanhood and her velour, both in the developing and the developed countries. The women’s right has proved to be a magic wand in terms of building a support system for the rights of women and their participation in spheres including politics and economics. It was 28th February 1909, when first International women’s day was celebrated in United States. And, it was only during 1975 when the UN (United Nations) started celebrating this day on 8th of March every year.
The first international Women’s day was celebrated back in the 1908 when a group of 15,000 women marched on the streets of New York, demanding their rights. Since then every year on 8th March the world joins hands together to support, raise, inspire and motivate women across all fields of work. The purpose of this day is to focus on various themes such as innovation, the portrayal of women in the media, or the importance of education and career opportunities. March 8th is a holiday in many countries, while others celebrate it by holding street marches, debates discussions and through a variety of other programmes.
