ABOUT WOMEN’S ALL OVERWROLD
Hii!!!From my side to all over world as it’s my first post on my website.Today is the women’s day . I m very blessed to write about women on the special auspicious day.8 march is celebrated internationally . Do you know why and why only 8 march is celebrated as women’s day NOT ANY OTHER DAY?
MMM ….. their is an interesting stories and great thought of selecting these date is selected to celebrate internationally.It is also known as the United Nations (UN) Day for Women’s Rights and International Peace.
The first International Women’s Day occurred on March 19 in 1911.
The March 19 date was chosen because it commemorated day that the Prussian king promised to introduce votes for women in 1848.The promise which gives hopes toward equality ,but he failed to keep up that promise. The International Women’s Day date was moved on dated 8th March 1913.Women’s Day was first observed on February 28, 1909 in New York.
At 1910 International Woman’s Conference, March 8 was suggested to be observed as “International Woman’s Day.” March 8 also became a national holidain Soviet Russia in 1917 after women gained suffrage there.
The day was then predominantly celebrated by the socialist movement and communist countries until it was adopted in 1975 by the United Nations.
CURRENT STATUS OF WOMEN
Although all over world women status at the society is better than iit was in earlier period.but still there are many incidences which make me think is it ture that all womens are having the same status and right as that of males? There are only 945 females per 1,000 males their only 3 girls per 10 boys admissions in Indian institute of technology and Compared to a man’s day, which is from 5am to 10am and then from 3pm to 5pm. Most women are overworked with no maternity leave or special breaks for those who are pregnant. Plus women do the majority of the manual labor that uses a lot of energy compared to the men who do mostly machine operating (Coonrod). Even though women work twice as many hours as men, the men say that “women eat food and do nothing.” This is mainly because the work the women perform does not require a lot of skill and are smaller tasks.Is that the equality women’s get???
