I SALUTE ALL MY SISTERS TODAY

 
Today,  I salute all my sisters around the globe. Today we remember and thank our female ancestors for championing this day for us. 
Briefly,  this day started with a handful of women in New York City on March 8, 1857 to end the inequalities in the work place. The movement was squashed at that time but the idea and the will of women wasn't.  Years later on March 8, 1908, again in New York City, women rallied to stop child labor and demand to vote in elections and this was following their sisters movement some 51 years later. During French revolution Parisian women  marched for "Liberty, Equality and Fraternity" to demand women's suffrage. In 1909 first Women's Day was observed in Europe on February 28. Later  continued to be observed on the last Sunday's of February until 1914. Between 1910-1914 International Women's Day was celebrated on different days in different countries. On March 8, 1914 women in Europe held rallies to protest the war and expressed solidarity with all women around the world and by  March 8, 1917 International Women's Day reached global dimensions.

There is still a lot of work to be done for women's rights globally,  but as the saying goes " a women's work is never done".

Hi Marco Pasha,
is your name an alias, because you are supposed to be female, aren't you? How did you come to choose ist like this? Is there a role model for your blogger name?

Thanks for having become a follower of my blog :-) No problem, I cancelled the second comment. I look forward to your visits on my blog. Do you understand german or do you have to use the google translator tool? There are translated funny things, sometimes ;-)
Best regards from
Barbara
