International Women's Day is celebrated in many countries around the world. It is a day when women are recognized for their achievements without regard to divisions, whether national, ethnic, linguistic, cultural, economic or political. International Women's Day first emerged from the activities of labour movements at the turn of the twentieth century in North America and across Europe.
Since those early years, International Women's Day has assumed a new global dimension for women in developed and developing countries alike. The growing international women's movement, which has been strengthened by four global United Nations women's conferences, has helped make the commemoration a rallying point to build support for women's rights and participation in the political and economic arenas.
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 International women's day calls for the equality of women in the society where they are often not given that right that, she actually deserves. But thankfully, since the inception of the IWD, the scenario has changed quite rapidly to address many issues in the related field. International women's day has not any affiliation from a particular group or organization rather it brings together the reputed women's organizations, Governments of various countries and other organizations that are from the similar school of thought.
Let's celebrate the incredible strength of women to strengthen the foundation of the society!!
