Celebrated every year on the 8th of March, International Women’s Day, or simply known as Women’s Day is a heart-warming and motivating event for women across the world, of all ages, and ethnic and racial backgrounds. It unites and integrates not only women, but even male feminists and those who believe in equality for all!
Exclusive events are held for, and often even by women from different backgrounds like political, community, business leaders, as well as leading educators, inventors, entrepreneurs, and television personalities. These famous personalities aim to bring awareness and focus on various themes such as innovation, the portrayal of women in the media, or the importance of education and career opportunities for women.
So much importance has now been given to equality that in many countries (for instance, Armenia, Belarus, Russia, Ukraine etc.), International Women’s Day is celebrated as a public holiday!
Businesses, government offices, and even educational institutions are closed in these countries on this day, to celebrate Women’s Day.
Many cities in some countries even host wide-scale events to honour women on this day. Celebrations include street marches, fairs, and discounts for women in shopping malls, and in restaurants!
A little history about this significant day- The first International Women’s Day was celebrated on March 19th in 1911. However, this date was moved to March 8th in 1913. This significant event, which included rallies and organised meetings, first saw success in countries like Austria, Denmark, Germany and Switzerland.
The official logo for International Women’s Day is in purple and white, including the symbol of Venus, which is the symbol for females. Historically, the combination included the colours purple, white and green to symbolise women's equality, which originated in the United Kingdom in 1908 from the Women's Social and Political Union. Among these tricolours, purple symbolises justice and dignity; green symbolises hope; and white symbolises purity. White was later removed from the logo as 'purity' was seen as a controversial concept.
Whether you want to celebrate the presence of your mom, your sister, your girlfriend, your teacher, or practically any woman in your life, International Women’s Day is exactly for that. To appreciate, and commemorate this strong and persistent sex, who have fought oppression, discrimination, inequality, to name a few issues!
