March 8th is International Women’s Day, a day to celebrate the social, economic, cultural, and political achievements of women.
International Women’s Day (IWD) has been observed since the early 1900s – a time when women’s rights were a hot topic and suffragettes were fighting for the right to vote. The day celebrates women’s achievements – both past and present – and is a time to reflect on how far we have come in the fight for gender equality.
IWD is now more relevant than ever. In the past year, we have seen a global pandemic that has had a disproportionate impact on women and girls. We have also seen a rise in the movement for Black Lives, which has shone a spotlight on the systemic racism and discrimination that women of color face.
No matter where you are in the world, you can get involved in International Women’s Day. This year, on International Women’s Day, let’s commit to taking action to build a better future for everyone.
Women are incredible and unstoppable. They are everywhere from our home to the playground to space. They have the most critical thinking capability and complex biological functions. All the things about a woman are different, even if they think far after from the present situation. Most of the time most people think about the current situation but a woman always thinks ahead of the situation. No one can’t guess what they are thinking about, not even the God-like supreme being. Every year 8th of march celebrates International Women’s Day.
