History of International Women’s Day
Women have been oppressed throughout history. In the last 100 years progress has been made to attain equality, but there is still a way to go.
In 1909, the first National Women’s Day was observed in the America in accordance with a declaration by the Socialist Party of America. In 1910 an International Women’s Conference was organized by German suffragist, Clara Zetkin.
Today, International Women’s Day brings together governments, charities, many businesses, groups, and individuals with the common goal of supporting women’s empowerment.
The event happens on 8th March (in the Western calendar) because back in 1917, in Russia, women workers in Petrograd held a mass strike and demonstration demanding Peace and Bread.
