Happy International Women’s Day 2024

International Women’s Day is celebrated on March 8 every year in more than 80 countries of the world.  Countries celebrate the day in their way. Many countries have the practice of declaring a public holiday for women on this day.  The United Nations officially recognized Women’s Day in 1975.

 There is also controversy surrounding the celebration of Women’s Day.  Some people think that there is a need to celebrate Women’s day to remind the movement for women’s rights.  Others feel that by celebrating a separate day for women, women are seen as weak.

 Both sides’ arguments are reasonable.  However, since women’s rights and dignity have not been fully implemented, there is no harm if the issue is consciously raised in society’s thoughts even one day in a year focusing on women’s day!

 Although many people have different ideas about Women’s Day, the main goal of International Women’s Day is to celebrate the achievements of women in society, economy, culture, and politics.  In addition to this, raising awareness about the importance of women’s equality in society is another objective. There should not be competition or rivalry between women and men. Each should be a partner.  Men should be sensitive and respectful towards women. 

A patriarchal society has a practice of thinking of women as ‘weaker and inferior to men. It needs to change.  Man surrenders to the woman only in love, nothing else. Not in life, not in action.  But recognizing the incomparable role or contribution of women in the family-society-state, men should show respect to her.  I want to bow down to women not only in love but also in respect.  The day man has this sense, society will change, the day society will change – not before.

 That’s why we all have to change our traditional and charitable mentality.  And for this, first of all, awareness is needed

History of International Women’s Day

That was the first women’s movement in the world.  Women took to the streets to claim their rights.  The context of the movement was to protest against women’s wage discrimination, fixed working hours, and inhumane working conditions.

 I am talking about 164 years ago.  In the year 1857 AD, the repression of the government’s lethal force took place in the streets of New York, USA.  On February 28, 1909, a women’s rally was organized by the Social Democratic Women’s Organization of New York.  The first international women’s conference was held there under the leadership of German socialist leader Clara Zetkin.

 Clara was a German politician.  One of the architects of the German Communist Party.  Then in 1910, the Second International Women’s Conference was held in Copenhagen, Denmark.  It was attended by 100 women delegates from 17 countries.  In this conference, Clara proposed to observe the 8th of March every year as International Women’s Day.  It was decided that the day would be celebrated as Women’s Equality Day from 1911 AD.  Socialists from different countries come forward to observe the day. Since 1914, March 8 has been celebrated in several countries.

Then the United Nations gave international recognition on March 8, 1975.  Even the United Nations called on different countries to observe the day.  Since then, the day has been celebrated all over the world to demand equal rights for women.  Currently, many countries around the world officially celebrate International Women’s Day as a public holiday to honor women.

These include Afghanistan, Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Burkina Faso, Cuba, Georgia, Guinea-Bissau, Eritrea, Kazakhstan, Turkmenistan, Uganda, Ukraine, Uzbekistan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan, Vietnam, Cambodia, Laos, Moldova, Mongolia, Montenegro, and Russia, and Zambia.  Also in China, Macedonia, Madagascar, and Nepal only women enjoy public holidays.

 The first theme of Women’s Day was to celebrate the past and plan for the future.  That was in 1996.  Since then every year women’s day is celebrated with a different theme.  Although Women’s Day is celebrated with a different theme every year, there is not much difference in the position of women around the world.  And every year, Women’s Day brings to the fore the history of women’s deprivation over thousands of years.

Significance of International Women’s Day

International Women’s Day is recognized as a day to assert their own rights by struggling women in every country of the world.  In different countries of the world, women’s organizations of different opinions also agree on the elimination of gender discrimination.  And the source of motivation for this consensus is International Women’s Day on March 8.

For almost ten decades, the rights-conscious women’s society of almost every country in the world has been observing this day as a day to protect their rights.  The welfare of mankind is closely related to the issue of women’s rights and women’s development.  Because half of the world’s skills, talent, that is, half of the store of talent, is with women.  It is a fact that overall progress is not possible without equal rights and joint efforts of men and women.
