International Women’s Day:
On March 8, 1857, women working for 10 consecutive hours in a textile factory in New York called for reduced work hours and increased wages. In fact, these women were dragged on horseback and dragged on the roads, but the women continued their movement against forced labor.
In 1910 the first world women’s conference was held in Copenhagen as a result of women’s constant struggle and everlasting sacrifices. Nearly 100 women from more than 17 countries participated in the decision to celebrate World Day of Persecution of Women.
Since the women strike on the death of two million Russian soldiers in World War I, this day has become a global phenomenon in developed and developing countries. But in 1956, the United Nations also decided to celebrate International Women’s Day on March 8, in protest over more than 20,000 women in New York protesting the ban on black farmworkers.
