#International women’s day#


Today is International Women’s Day, a day dedicated to celebrating the social, economic, cultural, and political achievements of women. It’s a day that acknowledges the progress that has been made toward gender equality, while also highlighting the work that still needs to be done.

The history of International Women’s Day

The history of International Women’s Day dates back over 100 years, that was a time when women in many countries were fighting for the right to vote and for better working conditions.

In 1908, 15,000 women marched through New York City to demand better pay, shorter working hours, and the right to vote. The following year, the first National Women’s Day was celebrated in the United States.

In 1910, a conference of women from around the world was held in Copenhagen, Denmark. At this conference, Clara Zetkin, a German socialist, proposed the idea of an International Women’s Day, to be celebrated on the same day every year. The proposal was unanimously approved, and the first International Women’s Day was held the following year, on March 19th.

Since then, International Women’s Day has been celebrated every year on March 8th. It’s a day that is recognized by the United Nations and by countries around the world.

Choose to Challenge

 Each year, a theme is chosen to guide the celebrations and to highlight a specific issue affecting women.

This year’s theme is “Choose to Challenge”. It’s a call to action to challenge gender bias and inequality and to create a more inclusive world. The theme recognizes that everyone has a role to play in creating a more equal world and that change can only happen if we all work together.

Sexual violence in their lifetime

There are many issues affecting women around the world, and International Women’s Day provides an opportunity to bring these issues to the forefront. One of the most pressing issues is gender-based violence. According to the United Nations, 1 in 3 women around the world will experience physical or sexual violence in their lifetime. This is an unacceptable statistic and one that highlights the urgent need for action to end gender-based violence.

Social inclusion

In addition to these global challenges, there are also many local and regional issues that impact women’s lives. From access to healthcare and reproductive rights to political representation and social inclusion, there are many issues that affect women differently than men.

The gender pay gap

Another issue affecting women is the gender pay gap. Women around the world earn less than men for the same work, and this gap is even wider for women of color and women in developing countries. This means that women are more likely to live in poverty, to be dependent on others, and to have limited opportunities for education and career advancement.

Women also face barriers to political participation and leadership. According to the Inter-Parliamentary Union, only 25% of parliamentarians worldwide are women. This means that women’s voices and perspectives are often excluded from decision-making processes, which can have a negative impact on policies and programs that affect women’s lives.

Taliban for women’s rights and freedoms

And more importantly, we can see this in Afghanistan. The rulers banned female students from attending school and colleges in their wide-ranging crackdown on women’s rights and freedoms.

These are just a few examples of the issues facing women around the world, and there is still much work to be done to achieve gender equality. But International Women’s Day provides an opportunity to celebrate the progress that has been made, and to recommit to the work that still needs to be done.

I am happy to share some news in Today’s newspaper in this regard. There was news that one Afghan woman wins an MA gold medal at Gujrat university in India. Hitting out at the Taliban, she says — It is shameful that the Afghan government has banned girls and women from receiving formal education. I am thankful to the Indian government and the people of India for providing me with this opportunity.

Yes, one of the key ways to create a more equal world is to ensure that women have access to education and training. Education is a powerful tool that can empower women to take control of their lives, to pursue their passions and interests, and to contribute to their communities. Education can also help to break down gender stereotypes and to promote gender equality.

Another important step is to promote women’s leadership and political participation. This means creating opportunities for women to participate in decision-making processes, and to take on leadership roles in their communities, workplaces, and governments. When women are in positions of power, they can help to create policies and programs that promote gender equality and address the specific needs of women and girls.

Finally, on this International Women’s Day, let us choose to challenge gender stereotypes and bias.

Let us commit to creating a more inclusive world where all women have the opportunity to achieve their full potential.

Let us celebrate the incredible achievements of women everywhere, and let us honor the ongoing struggle for gender equality and women’s rights around the world. Together, we can create a brighter future for all women.
