Today the world celebrates a special day dedicated to all the women in the world. Women the world emerges from, women giving life, shaping reality and carving out beings everyday. And so today, the world acknowledges the greatness within each and every woman with the theme Be Bold For Change.
One does not need to go far to see the greatness in woman, far enough to the awarded and praised one’s to understand the priceless roles they play within the society. Look around, all the mothers, sisters and partners striving to bring the love, the kindness and the thoughtfulness out of the world. we need to be grateful towards every woman in this world who have been struggling a lot to overcome their obstacles in their life. We need to remind the rest of the world how remarkable women are and the hardship they still encounter all over the world.
International Women’s Day was born on March 8, 1908 when 15,000 women marched through the streets of New York City to demand shorter hours, better pay, and the right to vote. The first International Women’s Day event wasn’t held until 1911, and only then in Austria, Denmark, Germany, and Switzerland. The UN didn’t recognize it as a holiday until 1975.
In 1910 the first international women’s conference was held in Copenhagen.
It wasn’t until 2011, to honor the centennial of the first International Women’s Day event, that President Obama declared the entire month of March “Women’s History Month” in the United States.
This year, the official theme of the day is #BeBoldforChange, a campaign calling for people “to help forge a better working world—a more gender inclusive world.
