International Women’s Day (8 March)


8 March, International Women’s Day is a global day celebrating the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women, (Women are the real architects of society). Today, March 8th, is International Women’s Day. What better way to celebrate it than to shine light on the ladies who have contributed to society with their talent, perseverance, and timeless wisdom. The day also marks a call to action for accelerating gender parity. A time of great expansion and turbulence in the industrialized world that saw booming population growth and the rise of radical ideologies. International Women’s Day is a collective day of global celebration and a call for gender parity. No one government, NGO, charity, corporation, academic institution, women’s network or media hub is solely responsible for International Women’s Day. Many organizations declare an annual theme that supports their specific agenda or cause, and some of these are adopted more widely with relevance than others.

“The story of women’s struggle for equality belongs to no single feminist nor to any one organization but to the collective efforts of all who care about human rights,” renowned feminist, journalist and social and political activist Gloria Steinem. Thus International Women’s Day is all about unity, celebration, reflection, advocacy and action – whatever that looks like globally at a local level. But one thing is for sure, International Women’s Day has been occurring for well over a century – and continua’s to grow from strength to strength.

The unfortunate fact is that women are still not paid equally to that of their male counterparts, women still are not present in equal numbers in business or politics, and globally women’s education, health and the violence against them is worse than that of men. However, great improvements have been made. We do have female astronauts and prime ministers, school girls are welcomed into university, women can work and have a family, women have real choices. And so each year the world inspires women and celebrates their achievements. A global web of rich and diverse local activity connects women from all around the world ranging from political rallies, business conferences, and government activities and networking events through to local women’s craft markets, so make a difference, think globally and act locally!
“You care day and night for your children, grandchildren and your family. Even today, on International Women’s Day, you are still caught up in your routine, working tirelessly, always on time.

They tend to look at things in every negative manner possible and because of their way of thinking and perception, they haunt the women around them and pierce their lives with fear. I believe that it all depends on perception. First we build our perception and then our perception builds us. The kind of perception we create in our minds, the same kind of person we end up being.

I believe that if wrong perception is the disease, then building the right perception is the cure. Different creative ways should be applied to spread awareness on this sensitive issue and teach the male population to respect women. Some creative ways are:

Making documentaries: – Documentaries should be made regarding this issue. Documentaries should show the mind-set of women before and after the crime and how haunting it is for them to face such a wicked experience. Also, these documentaries should show celebrities who are followed world-wide, with moral messages about women and the respect they deserve.

Teaching kids the importance: – Boys from an early age should be taught the importance of respecting the opposite gender. The documentaries should be shown to them in school so that they learn about the issue and gain moral values from an early age. Creatively, these documentaries should be animated and should include the most lovable cartoon characters together with message on the issue.

Many campaigns have been started by women for women. However, I truly believe that men should initiate campaigns for ensuring that they play their role in the society and make every woman they know feel respected and cared.

Everyone should know that if it wasn’t for women, then we all would have never been born.

A woman sacrifices a lot of things in her life. Yet, somehow she finds happiness in those things. I hope we, as men, find happiness in giving women the love and respect they deserve.
