Women`s Day or Women`s rights day is a day, when women around World is trying to get attention to the women rights and the gap between men and women at the work place. It`s starts to be celebrated during the socialism period and is one of the best thing heritage from that period. “After women gained suffrage in Soviet Russia in 1917, March 8 became a national holiday there. The day was then predominantly celebrated by the socialist movement and communist countries until it was adopted in 1975 by the United Nations.”
It was lost, its popularity and the women days become identical to Valentine`s Day, especially in the countries, which society are less developed, compared to others. It`s all about time and timing, the societies have the ability to solve their problems and heal themselves, when the time comes. If the leaders are smart and wise enough, they will find a way to lead their people during this process, if not, they will be changed. 2017 World Economy Forum, pay attention to the gender equality and the women`s right, thanks to that movements like #MeToo #TimesUp starts to take actions and rising voices. I have to admit, there are some ideas, about feminism, I`m not fully agreed with, but if supporting #MeToo, #TimesUp, #unwomen and the trying to get attention to the women`s rights makes me feminist, than, YES I`m a FEMINIST. We all should be feminist, no matters men or women it`s about women`s rights, which means human rights! Equality, means development in all spheres of the society – economy; rights; better, future. Women empowerment will balance the World, we need change in political vision, economy and society.
Happy Women`s Day, wish you to be strong, gentle and empowered!
“Here is to strong women:
May we know, them.
May we be them.
May we rise them.”
