women holiday

We all celebrate International Women's Day on 8 March every year, but few people know the whole history of this holiday. It turns out that there were no special reasons for celebrating 8 March. The roots of this holiday reach 1857, when in early spring in New York in Manhattan held a "march of empty pots". This is how American textile workers fought for their rights, demanding higher wages, better working conditions, reduction of the working day from 16 hours to 10 and equal rights for women. The women's demonstration was hastily dispersed, but it made enough noise to go down in history as "Women's Day". A similar situation was repeated in 1908 on the last Sunday in February. Thousands of women again flooded the streets of New York City, demanding the vote, better working conditions and the prohibition of child labour. The demonstration was broken up by the police, who used hoses with dirty ice water against the peaceful women.
Women's Day marches and strikes continued in 1909. In 1910, similar demonstrations took place all over the country. The activists then attended the Second International Conference of Socialist Women in Copenhagen, where they met Clara Zetkin. Admiring the actions of her "American sisters in socialism," Clara Zetkin proposed that the conference select a specific day for all women to call public attention to their demands. The proposal was supported by roll call vote. The result was the International Day of Solidarity of Women in the Struggle for Economic, Social and Political Equality. But the exact date of the celebration was never determined.
The first International Women's Day was held on 19 March 1911 in Germany, Austria, Denmark and other European countries. And only since 1914, the holiday began to be permanently celebrated on 8 March. What was the reason for this - it is not known.

In our country, since the first years of Soviet power, International Women's Day on 8 March became a public holiday. And in 1965, it was also made a red day of the calendar, i.e. a day off. And only in 1977 the holiday became a truly international holiday, when the United Nations adopted resolution 32/142, calling on all countries to proclaim 8 March as International Women's Day. It is noteworthy that until 1918 - when the new Gregorian calendar was introduced on the territory of the former Russian Empire - "the day of struggle for women's rights" was celebrated on 23 February - a day that today is associated as a men's holiday. ))) After the collapse of the Soviet Union, 8 March remained on the list of public holidays in the CIS countries: in the Russian Federation, Azerbaijan, Georgia, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Moldova, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan, Ukraine, Belarus as International Women's Day; in Armenia it is celebrated on 7 April as Motherhood and Beauty Day; in Uzbekistan as Mother's Day.

8 March is also a national holiday in Angola, Burkina Faso, Cambodia, China, Congo (where it is a holiday for Congolese women rather than "international" women), Laos, Macedonia, Mongolia, Nepal, North Korea and Uganda.
In Syria, 8 March is celebrated as Revolution Day, and in Liberia - as the Day of Remembrance of the Fallen.
