The 8th of March is International Woman's Working Day commemorates the movement for women's rights and celebrates the political, cultural, social, and economic achievements of women. It is also a day to continue fighting for gender equality: for equal pay and work opportunities for women, and for equality in access to education and healthcare worldwide. It is also a day to work to eradicate violence against women. It is celebrated around the world and supported by various groups. In many countries, men give flowers or small gifts to women in their lives. In some countries, it is celebrated like Mother's Day, and children give gifts to mothers and grandmothers. Taken from Checkiday. I will be thinking about my fellow ladies on this day and hope that there will be a time when there won’t be a need to commemorate the violence against women and the other struggles that they go through.
