Women’s Day is celebrated throughout the globe on March 8 every year. Celebrating Women’s Day is an opportunity to appreciate the remarkable contribution of women to our society.
This day has been recognized by United Nations General Assembly as a means of recognizing the contribution of women to the society.
There is now increased participation of women in different areas such as policy making. Women have showed that if not superior; they are equal to men in all fields and taking tough decisions.
International Women’s Day (IWD) was originally called International Working Women’s Day. It is celebrated differently in various regions, ranging from general celebration of respect, appreciation and love towards women to a celebration for women’s economic, political and social achievements.
It started as a socialist political event and then the holiday blended in the culture of many countries, primarily Eastern Europe, Russia, and the former Soviet bloc.
In some regions, the day lost its political flavor, and became simply an occasion for men to express their love for women in a way somewhat similar to a mixture of Mother’s Day and Valentine’s Day.
In other regions, however, the political and human rights theme designated by the United Nations runs strong, and political and social awareness of the struggles of women worldwide are brought out and examined in a hopeful manner.
