History of Women’s Day

The first known Women’s day was held on February 28, 1909, in New York in remembrance of the strike of international ladies garment worker’s strike in 1908. However, according to some no such strike took place on March 8.

The American socialists and German socialists proposed an International Women’s Day in the International Woman’s Conference organized at Copenhagen, Denmark in 1910. Although no specific date was finalized to celebrate the day. Women from seventeen countries agreed on the idea as it would help to encourage woman equality especially right to vote in public. Next year on March 19.1911 more than a million women protested in countries like Denmark, Switzerland, Germany and Austria. International Women’s Day was noticed first time then. In Vienna, women demonstrated to be given the right to vote as well as to assume public office.

In addition to that, they revolted sexual discrimination for employment. The last Sunday of February was chosen to celebrate National Women’s Day in the United States. Russian women celebrated the first women’s day in 1913 on last Saturday in February in the Julian Calendar.

The whole year of 1913 saw many protest and women marches to nominate a day for women. In 1914, March 8 a women’ s Day was first held as it was a Sunday. However, since then the March 8 is dedicated to celebrating International Women’s Day across the world. In 1918 German women finally won the battle to right to vote, a fight that started from the demonstration of 1914.

The protest was also viewed in London were women marched from Bow to Trafalgar Square. In 1917, Russain women protested in Saint Petersburg for “bread and peace” to end the hunger caused by World War I. The day was an official holiday but a working till 1965. It was announced as nonworking day on May 8, 1965. Chinese communists and Spanish communists observed the day from 1922 and 1936 respectively. After China had become People’s Republic of China women were given half day off.

Women’s Day Tradition

There are various traditions followed in different countries around the world. Most common are giving flowers and gifts women, i.e., mothers, wives, sisters, and friends. Yellow mimosas are given to women by men in Italy. The symbol was chosen as other symbols were not available in large quantity as well as was expensive in Italy. Hence Teresa Mattei chose yellow mimosa as a symbol of International Women’s Day. The same accompanied with chocolates are a common gift in Russia.

A common custom is to present women with gifts on the day. In Portugal, March 8 night is women only dinner where they can party and enjoy the night.

The United Nations in 1977 requested all members states to declare the day as UN Day for women rights as well as World Peace.
