Story behind International Women´s Day
International Women´s Day is celebrated on 8th March for longer then one century. It all started with women´s efford to enter public life and demand of equal rights. In 1908 in New York took a place a strike of local seamstresses who wanted shorter working hours and the right to vote. International Women´s Day was first celebrated a year later on 28th February. The date wasn´t firmly set at that time. 8th March was only set after the First World War after the demonstration in Petersburg, Russia in 1917. In 1975 International Women´s Day was internationaly recognised by OSN.
International Women´s Day is a public holiday in some countries and it has been ignored in others. It is usually connected to political campaigns for gender equality and anti-discrimination, but maily it is a day that respects and celebrates womanhood.
Gratitude is an important but unfortunately underestimated characteristic and everybody who show us kindness and help us in complicated situations definitely deserve some. Not only your mum, your granny or your partner, but also your friends. And anyone who did something nice for you in the past and didn´t want anything in return. Nowadays many things are taken for granted and warm thank you is forgotten together with a proper appreciation.
Now you have the opportunity to for at least one day (much better would be every day) give your appreciation to your loved ones and show all important women in your life how much they mean to you.
