The celebration of International Women’s Day began in 1910 when a woman named Clara Zetkin, head of the German Social Democratic Women’s Office, introduced the concept. This day was named Women’s Day after being unanimously approved and accepted by over 100 women around the world. Since then the day is celebrated on March 8, 1913, and is now celebrated on the same day every year.
Women’s Day was observed in the beginning of the 20th century, when the world experienced industrialization and brought tremendous growth and development. This day was originally known as International Working Women’s Day. For a number of years, people have been recognizing the potential of women regardless of their career path, and since then, International Women’s Day has taken on new meaning.
Over the years, International Women’s Day has gained attention and women and their work are beginning to get recognized, but there is still a long way to go!
We, as a society must:
1. Build Workplaces Where Women Thrive
2. Elevate Visibility Of Women Creatives
3. Forge Women’s Empowerment Worldwide
4. Forge Women’s Equality In Tech
5. Celebrate The Women Forging Change
6. Empower Women’s Choices In Health
It is true that womens’ contribution to society can’t be recognized only for a day. Womanhood should be celebrated everyday. On this International Women’s Day, we celebrate, develop and empower women! This is why this day has become so important over the years.
At Aakash, we #BreakTheBias and envision a future where all genders are treated equally.
A future without prejudice, preconceptions, or inequality. This future is Comprehensive, fair and forgiving. A future in which individuality is nurtured and cherished. Together we can achieve women’s equality as a team. We can eliminate prejudices in our community, our business, our schools, our universities, and our institutions. This International Women’s Day, let us all unite and pledge to break the stigma.
It’s a time to respect women and give them additional cause to thrive and rejoice.
Happy Women’s Day to all the amazing women out there!
