International Women’s Day (IWD) was first held in 1911 and commemorated on 8th of March every year.
All around the world, International Women’s Day signifies an opening to observe the accomplishments of women as calling for greater equal opportunity.
In various states the concentration of the observances ranges from general salutation of respect, positive reception and affection towards women to a commemoration for women’s social, economic and political accomplishments.
Commenced as a socialist political occasion, the celebration merged in the culture of numerous countries, predominantly in Europe. In some states, 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 concoction of Valentine’s Day and Mother’s Day
Meanwhile, the other regions, yet, the political and human rights theme selected by the United Nations goes robust. However, political and social responsiveness of the battles of women global are brought out and observed in a optimistic comportment.
Several associations categorize their own International Women’s Day theme, exclusive to their local perspective, interest and benefit. Different charitable trusts, NGOs and Governments also implement a pertinent theme or crusade to mark the day.
