International Woman’s Day

Today, I intended to post something about the international woman’s day and I had collected some powerful photos of beautiful women. Some of them changed the world, some of them are mostly known for their beauty but these photos indicate a strong personality. Then I read again about how this day established and I felt guilty. This day refers to women fights for their working rights. We celebrate women today as a rememberance to a big demonstration in 1857 in New York by textile women workers. Its celebration started as a Socialist political event, the holiday blended in the culture of many countries, primarily in Europe, including Russia. In most regions, the day lost its political flavor, and became simply an occasion for men to express their love for women in a way somewhat similar to a mixtureof Mother’s Day and Valentine’s Day. In other regions, however, the political and human rights theme designated by the United Nations runs strong, and political and social awareness of the struggles of women worldwide are brought out and examined in a hopeful manner. Therefore, I will post the photos I was going to but I would like to highlight the significance of the history of this day as long as the need for the continuous fight for what we deserve.
