‘Be Bold and Accept Challenge’: The Aim of International Women Day

NUT Blogger (MAD)

March 8th marks 110 years since the annual International Women’s Day (IWD) was first commemorated in 1911. In 1921, the IWD was designated to seek attention from all quarters for giving equal rights and promote women’s right to vote in developed countries’ political setup. This day highlights the achievements of women with a national holiday in numerous countries as decided by the United Nations in 1975.

In its campaign for female enfranchisement, the Socialist Party of America in 1909 held the first National Woman’s Day, which was highlighted by mass meetings across the United States; the day was observed until 1913.

This year’s celebrations will start with the objective “Be Bold and Accept Challenge”. There are a lot of voices of women around the world on the challenges they face and the hopes they have. Today, it is an important occasion for promoting women’s issues and rights, especially in developing countries.

The above reforms established women empowerment in all fields of life. Now the women are shoulder to shoulder with men in all walks of life, whatever it is, from Space Station to Railway Station responsibilities and Commerce to Computer Science services.

The occasion will be celebrated by love messages from moms, aunts, sisters, daughters, teachers, female fellows, girlfriends and wives worldwide. Men should make them (females) feel honoured on this day, and we should hope that everybody will say ‘Happy Women’s Day’ to their love ones.
