History of International Women’s Day
If we go back to the starting days of establishing women’s day then here, I added some glimpse of these. Let’s have a brief look and get know.
As per the United Nations information, in the year 1909 International women’s Day was started in America when America’s socialist party carried out to the streets to respect the women employees of the garment who all had uttered a year ago the word of protest due to inhuman insensate conditions of working. Which they named the National Women’s Day and that was on February 28.
After next year, in Copenhagen (Denmark’s Capital) the social International Women’s Day was established to observe worldwide suffrage & women’s rights for those working women.
But, do you know? Officially the first international Women’s Day was observed in 1911 on March 19 by Denmark, Germany, Austria, Switzerland where lakhs of people gathered to join in the celebration, to focus on providing all the rights of women in suffrage, education, industries and also in representation.
After some year, some European country’s women protested strongly for their equality and claimed to observe women’s Day worldwide.
So, at the end of this topic, I have to mention, in 1975 United Nations observed it’s first International Women’s Day and March 8 is chosen as the universal date for this Women’s Day.
Since 1996 the UN announced it’s first theme celebration and is continuing celebrating every year with different themes.

Some methods to protect our women in our day-to-day world
Violence against women is very prevalent nowadays. You were also aware that, there is no single day where violence against women or against a girl child has not been in the news.
It is a very painful situation for you and me while watching or hearing that in news. Do you ever try to find out the causes of this violence?
Do you personally try to aware and protect women of our society? All these types of questions must be arising in our mind and somewhere we will get the better results of it.
Some methods to protect our women or a girl child which I feel is summarised below-
- Provide them training of at least minimum self-defence techniques in case of an attack on them, they can utilize it.
- All the government and non-government organisations should be taken care of women and apply all safety measures for them.
- Aware and educating society to respect, help & provide a psychological happy life.
- On the other hand, to minimise & completely root out the number of perpetrators of women’s violence and instead build love & respect for them, everyone should be provided with psychological & spiritual good health education. I think it will be more beneficiary to us.
- Personally, you and I in our family should discuss this issue and especially lead & guide our next generations in a productive way.
Why is international women’s day so important?
There are varieties of woman forms we see around us. They play a very important role in every form. So, we cannot ignore those who have lots of responsibility for our society.
The original caretaker of our family is a woman. So, taking care of our society’s original caretaker is very important.
This day and its celebration are very much important for every girl, women and all mothers. This day is for them to celebrate equal opportunities, raises their voices against any injustice conditions and so on.
As so many of us have noticed in our own home that the role of our woman is how much important. So, I think no need to explain more about that.
So, International Women’s Day is a very important day for all of us and women must be provided with all the necessaries.
Ignoring them means we are ignoring our future or the next generations. Educating a woman means educating the whole family. Development can not be accelerated if a woman is not accelerated in all.
So, let’s celebrate this day with Informatic Nishant and spread awareness among people by sharing some information on social media with hashtags like #HappyInternationalWomensDay #savethegirlchild #Women’s Day2021 etc…
