Equality is a right not luxury: Happy International Women’s Day

It is no secret that we live in a patriarchal society. Every society needs to have a set pattern and patriarchy is just one of them. The real problem is when these very men at the top underestimate or rather deny basic human rights of women.

Families need to instigate in the minds of young generation, especially boys that women are not subordinates but equals. Like they say charity begins at home. If we want our societies to change our homes need to change first. The hypocrisy of political talks and law needs to give way to actions and solidarity of thought.

Women’s Day is celebrated, hence all across the world as an acknowledgement of their achievement and to show respect love and support to the battles fought so far.

The 1st national Women’s Day was celebrated in USA in 1909 after a declaration by the Socialist Party of America.Happy Womens Day

Clara Zetkin (Leader of the ‘Women’s Office’ for the Social Democratic Party in Germany) is the genius behind the idea of International Women’s Day. Zetkin proposed that every country should annually celebrate on the same day – a Women’s Day – to press for their demands in the general meeting of the Socialist Second International in Copenhagen in August 1910. The conference was attended by over 100 women from 17 countries, representing unions, socialist parties, working women’s clubs, and including the first three women elected to the Finnish parliament, welcomed Zetkin’s suggestion with unanimous approval and hence International Women’s Day came to existence . It has been celebrated on the 8th of March every year since then.

This year Greenpro India prays for a better future and an improved society for women across the world and urges you to stand for your own rights. We also urge for men to not make the mistake of underestimating the female strength and courage.  Happy Women’s Day to all the courageous and pretty women out there! :-)
