International Women’s Day is a special event that is celebrated all over the world on March 8. The purpose of this day is to celebrate the social, economic and cultural achievements of women in various walks of life. This day also marks a call to action for accelerating gender parity.
In 1909, the first Women’s Day was observed across the United States. On 19 March 1911, International Women’s Day was honoured for the first time in Austria, Denmark, Germany and Switzerland.
Later it was decided that March 8 can be the globally accepted day to celebrate IWD.
The theme for International Women’s Day 2022 is “Gender Equality Today For a Sustainable Tomorrow”. A world free of bias, stereotypes and discrimination.
The aim of international Women’s Day is not to celebrate woman’s success of a year but it is a reminder that men and women are equal and women have an identity of their own and that they have the freedom to choose for themselves and not according to social norms.
Women are strong, powerful and invincible. Whether she is a teacher, homemaker, economist, engineer, women have been making the world a better place with their infinite strength, determination and belief.
We must agree that both women and men contribute equally to the development of the home and community. Women are not just child bearers. Women have their own identity.
Moreover, each woman is amazing regardless of where she works home or office. We must respect and recognise the achievements of women in their life.
Now, there is no space where women are not working and excelling at what they are doing. Women manage a number of things at the same time. There are three color for this day: Purple, Green and White. Purple signifies justice and dignity. Green symbolises hope and white represents purity.
