Celebrating Women in a Special Season

To the women with a voice;

To the ones who make a difference;

To the ones who offer their backs as steps for other women to climb;

To the ones who fight for the rights of other women;

To those that die to self, so that others can survive in a world of wolves in sheep clothing;

…Kudos, to the woman of strength!

The International Women’s Day, IWD is an annual March 8th event, which marks the movement of women’s rights. The first was held in New York on March 8th 1909.

In August 1910, during an International Women’s Conference in Copenhagen, Denmark, Luise Zietz, a German Socialist, raised a motion, seconded by Clara Zetkin for the establishment of an annual International Women’s Day.

One hundred women from seventeen countries concurred, as it was for the purpose of establishing the movement for equal rights for women.

Although no date was specified at the 1910 conference, over a million people marked IWD on March 19, 1911 in Switzerland, Germany, Austria, and Denmark.

On the last Saturday of February 1913, the women in Russia observed their first IWD, and then in 1914, they held it on March 8; and so was it in other countries from then on.

In 1917, March 8 was declared National holiday in Soviet Russia and was also celebrated in other communist countries.

China began observing IWD in 1922, and after the founding of the People’s Republic of China, March 8 was proclaimed an official holiday as well.

The United Nations joined up with the celebration in 1975,  which was the International Women’s Year, and in 1977, invited member states to proclaim March 8 as the UN Day for women’s rights and world peace.
