Celebrate Women around the World.
International Women's Day is a day that is celebrated around the world every year on March 8th. This holiday started on February 23rd 1909 when American Socialist Faction party organized women to discuss the woman right to vote. It was this great organization that inspired women around the world. Countries such as Austria, Denmark, Germany and Switzerland would become greatly involved. The date March 8th was set to celebrate "International Day of the Woman Worker"
March 8th is often thought of as the day of love and admiration for women. Many consider females the loveliest creatures on Earth. The day that celebrates the Working Woman has not always been a day that was embraced. It was originally a day of struggle for women and the rights for equality in every day life, work and family. They were in search of equal voting rights.
One historical event that happened on March 8th occurred in the year 1857. It was a political event that masses of working women in New York joined together. Today though the day is not as political but a simple day to celebrate working women.
I hope that in my grand-daughters life time we will all treat each others as equals and not just one day a year celebrate the working women.
My take on this day is one that is respected. I have had my shares of working with men who have had their heads full of them selves. Men who would refuse to work side by side with me because of me being a woman. I hope in my daughters and grand-daughters life this will never happen.
