! ! Happy Women’s day ! !

! ! Happy Women’s day ! !

The international women’s day is celebrated every year on March 8th.

The meaning of women’s day  refers to political, social and economic achievements of women and the fight against violence they suffered in history.
The history of the “ Women’s Day” dates back to the beginning of ‘900 to the tragedy that occurred on March 8th in 1908, in which women workers of the Cotton textile industry in New York, were killed by fire. The fire of 1908 was however confused with another fire in the same city, which occurred in 1911 when  146 victims were recorded, including many women.

Initially the “Woman’s Day“,  was set up to discuss over sexual discrimination and the right to vote.

At the end of 1908 the American Socialist Party decided to dedicate the last Sunday of February 1909 to the demonstration for the vote to women.

So, the first “Women’s Day” in the United States took place on February 23, 1909.
A couple of years later it was decided to follow the American initiative by setting up an international day dedicated to the rights of women. Initially this day was not the same in all countries

In  1944  in Italy the Woman’s day  was set on March 8 and that the symbol became the mimosa,a  seasonal and cheap flower.

Today the women’s party has lost its initial value.

While there are women’s organizations that continue to try to raise public awareness about the various issues affecting women – such as violence against women and the pay gap compared to men – many women consider this day as an opportunity to go out with friends, leaving husbands, companions and children at home
