Mother, sisters, wives, girlfriends and fiancees … what would we ever do without them? Honestly, no one can say that we owe much to the women of our lives, the mothers who made us the chicken soup when we were sick, the sisters who helped us decide what to wear on our first date. , brides who manage to somehow reconcile career and family, never losing a beat.
Women’s Day is about celebrating these incredible people and showing them how much we love, respect and value them. This celebration may be particularly important in those parts of the world where women are still forced to deal with a shocking inequality on a daily basis and aims to raise awareness of the challenges and struggles that women face. Women’s Day celebrates women’s history by highlighting key events, milestones and achievements. It aims to promote and raise awareness of women’s rights and to ensure equal opportunities in all areas.
It even shocked Leon Trotsky, who, like other Russian leaders at the time, did not expect the Women’s Day protests to make such a stir. Until 1977, Women’s Day was celebrated mainly in the socialist countries. It was only after the decision of the United Nations General Assembly to proclaim March 8 International Women’s Day that this holiday has grown in popularity around the world.
History of the day of the woman
It may seem surprising that Happy Women’s Day 2019 was celebrated for the first time on February 28, 1909 in New York. Two years later, the German Socialist Luise Zietz proposed that the festival should become an annual celebration that would celebrate various women’s issues, such as suffrage, in order to promote equal rights for women. The first days of the woman were celebrated in a way quite different from today, with hundreds of events organized in Europe.
During these demonstrations, women demanded that they finally be granted the right to vote and hold public office. Gender-based discrimination in employment is also a major problem. In 1917, the Women’s Day protests in St. Petersburg, Russia, helped initiate the February Revolution, when women marched through the city to demand the end of the First World War.
