The INTERNATIONAL WOMEN’S DAY is coming on March 8th 2016, so then how will you be celebrating #IWD2016 ? More importantly how will you take action to help accelerate gender parity? Make a #PledgeForParity this women’s day. With this promote your pledge via social media. Recognise and appreciate all that those important women in your life have ever done for you.
It is frankly very easy to dismiss the idea of a day just for women. So why is it then needed? Where’s the day for men? On the contrary, It’s actually the 19th of November, for those who are inquisitive. If you look at the average life span of a woman in a country like India, it is sixty eight years, you might be slightly sceptical as to why it is necessary. After all, women can now up to a good percentage do what they want here, they have the vote, can work where they want, receive the same education and everything on the surface seems fair.
But it is important not to forget that the International Women’s Day is over a century old. Less than fifty years ago in many parts of the world, women had to resign from their civil service jobs if they got married. They could not own property completely on their own. So there obviously has been a lot of progress in the last fifty years or so, in terms of Indian women’s place in society. As well as aiding discussion, it is a chance to rejoice and celebrate in all the achievements and contributions that women have added to the world! Too often it has been observed that women have been wiped away from the books of history and International Women’s Day is an opportunity to enjoy all the music, literature, scientific discoveries and so much more that has been as a result of a woman and often never credited.

Of late it has been seen that women’s interest and participation in social life is increasing. This development is also the result of women’s education and secularization of social values. Women are participating in social organizations and are also now developing a taste for leading a life of social involvement. Their interest in social and cultural activities is increasing. They have growing interest in literary and travel activities. They have finally got the platform for showcasing, exploiting or doing what they really ever wanted all these years. So then, this #IWD2016 let us acknowledge and make them feel like the real queen of your life’s.
