From the struggle of working women to International Women’s Day

On International Women’s Day (International Women’s Day). Which falls on March 8 every year. Today, Eventpop will bring you to know more about International Women’s Day. It is undeniable that women have been a significant part of the economic and social driving force for all ages. Although the expectations and roles of women in society very advance. But that is the result of a long-standing struggle for women’s rights

Origin of International Women’s Day 

International Women’s Day was originally call “International Women’s Day”, Which previously did not have a specific celebration date. The day’s origins were 1857. When thousands of women workers gathered in New York City to demand fair wages and rights. Women workers were often exploite by their employers by requiring them to work 16-17 hours. Hours a day without any days off, including any welfare, with a deteriorating quality of life. So they came together to defend their rights.

Women who drive society

Although calls to reduce working hours to 8 hours a day and improve welfare have not been successful all at once. But this struggle has sparked and empowered working women around the world to realize their rights more widely. The main ship of the movement is Clara Zetkin, a German socialist political activist. At the Second Socialist Women’s Congress in 1910 in Copenhagen Denmark She and more than 100 women representatives from 17 countries have proposed the establishment of Sakhon Women’s Day to celebrate the global struggle for women’s rights and equality. And later was set to meet on March 8 of every year

Today’s Women’s Challenges

Although the current labor law has protection for all genders to receive welfare and set working hours and fair wages. But today, women around the world still have to face the problem of inequality caused by deep-rooted social and economic factors. This leaves many women deprived of access to education, job opportunities and the right to access safe treatment. Including the problem of domestic violence and sexual violence that has not disappeared even though the world has progressed very far.
