International Women's Day, March 8th is an occasion marked by women's groups around the world. This date is also commemorated at the United Nations and is designated in many countries as a national holiday. When women on all continents, often divided by national boundaries and by ethnic, linguistic, cultural, economic and political differences, come together to celebrate their Day, they can look back to a tradition that represents at least nine decades of struggle for equality, justice, peace and development. International Women's Day is the story of ordinary women as makers of hitory; it is rooted in the centuries-old struggle of women to participate in society on an equal footing with men. In ancient Greece, Lysistrata initiated a sexual strike against men in order to end war; during the French Revolution, Parisian women calling for "liberty, equality, fraternity" marched on Versailles to demand women's suffrage.


The idea of an Women's Day first arose at the turn of the century, which in the industrialized world was a period of expansion and turbulence, booming population growth and radical ideologies.

The Charter of the United Nations, signed in 1945, was the first international agreement to affirm the principle of equality between women and men. Since then, the UN has helped create a historic legacy of internationally-agreed strategies, standards, programmes and goals to advance the status of women worldwide. Over the years, the UN and its technical agencies have promoted the participation of women as equal partners with men in achieving sustainable development, peace, security, and full respect for human rights. The empowerment of women continues to be a central feature of the UN’s efforts to address social, economic and political challenges across the globe.

reminds me of ...

the awakening of women by k.pannikar...

it was a very nice article ....but i hated learning it up . whn it came in the CBSE class 12 english text ..it was like learning history ..


i get very flattered ...when men take interest to appreciate a women's effort ...and more so ..when they don't reallly differentiate ....routine tasks as men's or women's .....


when i hear stuff like ...my hubby cooked or my boyfriend did this and that ...it sounds really sweet ..esp. when it is an indian guy doing it ...

i dunt mind when a guy says ...oh i dunt do tht coz i m really lazy or sumthin ...

i HATE it .when a guy says ...... oh thts a guls job! ...i feel like (serup adichifying) him....
