International Women’s Day: The Equality of Genders

International Women’s Day: The Equality of Genders

What is it like to be a woman? It takes days or months to answer that question or maybe impossible. For some people, being a woman means being soft and gentle. However, for some, womanhood is strength. The measurement of a woman’s strength is not measured by the effect of hard times that she has been through, but it is measured by how she handles tough situations and who she becomes eventually. Also, how women are dressed is not the definition of who they really are. You can be a woman wearing a dress and heels, flip flops, or boots, but how you are dressed does not define who you are. Womanhood is also not defined by past relationships, jobs, body parts, or anything else . It's not defined by anyone or anything but yourself.

International Women’s Day is celebrated on 8th of March annually to praise the achievements of women all over the world. The day is devoted to celebrating women of all backgrounds, education, and culture to fight for gender equality and women's rights. The first official International Women’s Day was in 1911. It was originally celebrated with rallies and organized meetings on March 19 in Switzerland, Austria, Germany, and Denmark, and was the result of the 1910 International Conference of Working Women. At the conference in Copenhagen, a city in Denmark,  a German woman named Clara Zetkin proposed the idea. Zetkin’s proposal was unanimously approved by more than 100 women. The March 19 was chosen because it commemorated the day that the Prussian king promised to introduce votes for women in 1848. The promise gave hope for equality but it was a promise that he failed to keep. Then, the International Women’s Day date was moved to March 8 in 1913.

Women are taking power over their stories and speaking their truths. The best way to celebrate womanhood is by allowing them to speak for themselves rather than letting the society tell them what they are or who they are supposed to be.
