Dou you know that International Women’s Day has been observed since in the early 1900’s? According to Mr. Wikipedia;
The first IWD was observed on 28 February 1909 in the United States following a declaration by the Socialist Party of America. Among other relevant historic events, it commemorates the Triangle Shirtwaist Factory fire (New York, 1911), where over 140 women lost their lives. The idea of having an international women’s day was first put forward at the turn of the 20th century amid rapid world industrialization and economic expansion that led to protests over working conditions.
And believe what guys, we can celebrate ours too! The International Men’s Day does exist. But to think about it, why?
