March 8: International Women’s Day

7 03 2009

iwdDid you know that March 8 is celebrated as International Women’s Day all over the world?

And throughout March, events occur to celebrate the economic, political and social accomplishments of women.

Organizations, governments and women’s group pick various themes every year that reflect global and local gender issues, which may or may not all be the same.

IWD has been observed since the early 1900’s. The first National Women’s Day was observed in the U.S. on Feb. 28, in line with a declaration by the Socialist Party of America.

A second International Conference of Working Women was held in Copenhagen, Germany in 1910. Clara Zetkin came up with the idea for an International Women’s Day; she suggested that every year in every country there should be an observation on the same day (Women’s Day) to push for their demands.

This day was honored for the first time in 1911 by Austria, Denmark, Germany and Switzerland. More than 1 million women and men came to IWD rallies fighting for women’s rights to vote, work, be trained, hold public office and stop discrimination.

While there has been a lot of change in women’s and society’s thoughts and attitudes about women’s equality and freedom, we are not completely there. Women are still paid less than men (about 77 cents on the dollar), women aren’t present in equal numbers in politics or business and around the world, women’s education, health and violence against them is worse than that of men.

So, do what you can everyday to make sure that our future as girls and women is bright, equal, secure and rewarding.

The United Nation’s theme for 2009 is Women and men united to end violence against women and girls. For more info about IWD, check out its website:
