March 8th is International Women's Day

What did your mother, sister, aunt, grandmother, or daughter, if you have a daughter, achieve? What did your female friends and co-workers achieve? Think about all of the fantastic things, big or small, that the women in your life accomplished. If you are a woman, honor your accomplishments on International Women’s Day.

March 8th is International Women’s Day, and that is the day to look up to the influential women in your life and all around you. If you are a woman, you will want to look back and be proud of anything you achieved, whether significant to society or significant to you! All of it counts. That does not mean women who won the Nobel Peace Prize, are part of sports teams, got straight A’s at school, became millionaires and billionaires, or became successful CEOs are the only ones to celebrate on this day.

Think about the women who battle mental illness or physical illness and accomplish the arduous task for them: getting out of bed, taking a shower, exercising, and getting on with the day. Those women need celebration as well. Therefore, these women’s work, whether they are related to their career or for surviving, must be acknowledged and admired on International Women’s Day. This is the day to allow women to talk about their achievements and for you to celebrate with them, and don’t forget to do that either if you are a woman. If you don’t think you achieved anything, then you must look deeper within and find the things you did accomplish because you did accomplish something!

History Of International Women’s Day

The history behind International Women’s Day is long, as the day had to establish in a patriarchic society. In 1908, when it began as women had enough oppression, and one day in New York City, 15,000 women marched demanding voting rights, better pay, and shorter working hours. Then from 1909, the Socialist Party of America observed National Women’s Day on February 28, until 1913. Then on the Eve of WWII in 1914, International Women’s Day became a day to honor women’s rights and accomplishments worldwide on March 8th since other countries began following suit after establishing National Women’s Day in the USA.

How To Celebrate International Women’s Day

Think about an influential female in your life whether it is your mother, sister, aunt, daughter, best female friend, or a co-worker you look up to, and tell them that you are proud of their accomplishments. If you are the woman, take the time to celebrate your accomplishments, and don’t be afraid to boast on social media by using the hashtag #InternationalWomensDay in your post.
