Why do we celebrate Women’s Day and Why should we celebrate it?

This internationally celebrated day has a very deep meaning and aims to spread the message that there can be no development without gender equality.
The keywords of the day are:

  • Female emancipation
  • Fight against violence
  • Leadership
  • Inclusion


Infact the UN officializated the International Women’s Day – but the day of the woman was born many years before with the workers demonstrating in New York in 1857, even if the origin dates back to 8 March 1909 in which works of works died in a fire in the textile textile ‘Cotton and Cotton’ where they worked in New York or according to other sources on March 8, 1917 when a St. Petersburg women showed up for the end of the First World War – March 8 is still a important, symbolic, significant date.

“Inclusion rider” Frances McDormand said this statement last night at 90th Oscar Accademy Night in which she urged all other female nominees to stand up and reminded had to tell and projects that needed financing. Quoting Stacy Smith during his speech at the TED TALK, who researches gender equality in film and television at the University of Southern California, has put it, it’s the idea that line “positions”, where women, people of color, and members of LGBT communities are traditionally underrepresented.
