International Women’s Day 2023 in Pakistan
The history of International Women day is very long as this was the year 1908 when inequality among women is increasing day by day so a campaign arises to empower women and provide them the rights they deserve so 15000 women marched in New York City against the demand of shorter hours and better pay in offices. In against the march a socialist party of America is coming into existence so the first National Women’s day was celebrated on 28th February 1909. In the year 1910, a second international conference of working women was arranged in which Clara Zetkin who was the leader of that women’s party gave the idea of International Women’s Day. In those ideas, she claims that one day is being celebrated as this day by every year on the same date. The Ideas were approved in the year 1911 and Austria, Denmark, Germany, and Switzerland were the countries in which International Women’s Day is celebrated at that time on 19th March. After World War, I started in which Russian Women and Europe observe this day in the last week of February in 1913, 1914, and 1917.
In 1975 International Women Day is designated by the United Nations on 8th March so from then the date for this event is fixed and every 8th March this day is celebrated all over the world. Now there are a lot of countries in which IWD is celebrated as an official holiday. Women till now are not able to get their full rights and equal numbers in many fields like business and politics so the efforts from women continue as many improvements have been made but there are many other which remains to fill. So that is why this International Women’s Day 2023 in Pakistan will be celebrated on Thursday 8th March 2023 this year.
