INTERNATIONAL WOMEN’S DAY
International Women’s Day (8 March) is a global day celebrating the social, political, economic and cultural achievements of women. The day also marks a call to action for working towards women’s equality. Imagining life without women is quite hard-hitting. The fact remains that all the great people of the world are born from the womb of a woman and it is a woman from whom those great people have taken their initial teachings. And that is the reason we have always emphasized upon giving the due respect to women in their life. And that is why women’s day is celebrated with so much of zeal and it has spread throughout the world.
This year’s campaign, #EachForEqual, draws attention to the difference individuals can make.
Celebrating women is a way of feeling gratitude to each and every woman in one’s life, be it in the professional or the personal life. International Women’s day is observed every year on 8th of March and it is observed around the world to celebrate the velour of women. Women from various cultural and ethnic groups come together crossing all the boundaries to remember their struggle of many decades for peace, justice, equality and development. The day allows women to raise their voice for equal opportunities in whatever field they wish to participate in; the same men are provided with. Women like Mary Kom, Saina Nehwal and Malala Yusufzai have achieved so much in life despite facing struggles and inspire us through their journey to do better in life.
International women’s Day is all about feeling women realize their worth and giving them boost to achieve as per their actual potential. On this day the world unites to appreciate their courage to cross all the hurdles and make such tremendous improvement in all most all the spheres of life. Besides that, the most important thing to be given emphasis is the work that still needs to be done to fill that gap completely that has existed from ages.
So let us come together and celebrate the spirit of being a woman and thank the women in our life through little gestures of care. Women have contributed so much to society through their achievements in different fields. It is time for us now to appreciate their efforts by doing our bit. It is time for us now to work actively towards issues like gender equality, equal work- equal pay and women safety so that all women feel safe and valued not just on one particular day, but every day.
