The world is immersed in the celebrations of International Women’s Day (IWD) 2021 on March 8 today.

While every day is a women’s day, this particular day is marked to celebrate the social-economical, cultural, and political achievements of women from all walks of life.

On this auspicious day, women from every corner of the globe come together to raise awareness against gender bias and take action for inequality, while calling out the day-to-day problems they face in society.

 

It reminds that while a lot has been achieved, the journey is long, and a lot more needs to be done.

“A challenged world is an alert world. Individually, we’re all responsible for our own thoughts and actions – all day, every day.

We can all choose to challenge and call out gender bias and inequality. We can all choose to seek out and celebrate women’s achievements. Collectively, we can all help create an inclusive world.

From challenge comes change, so let’s all choose to challenge,” reads the IWD official website.

International Women’s Day: History and Significance

The history of International Women’s Day traces back to 1910, when Clara Zetkin, a 20th century Marxist from Germany, proposed at a conference that Women’s Day be celebrated in every country on February 28. The conference comprising of around 100 women from 17 countries unanimously approved the suggestion.

Women’s Day was first observed on February 28, 1911. Two years later, in 1913, the Socialist Party of America changed the date to March 8, and it continues to be celebrated as such every year.
