Here is the history of the International women’s day.

However, in August 1910, an International Socialist Women’s Conference was arranged to herald the general meeting of the Socialist Second International in Copenhagen, Denmark. Inspired in part by the American socialists, the German Socialist Luise Zietz took part towards the establishment of an annual Women’s Day, and was followed by fellow socialist, later communist leader Clara Zetkin, in hand with Käte Duncker.

Although no further date was identified at that particular conference, 100 women from over 17 countries, sat down and agreed to start up a strategy as a way of promoting equal rights including, the right to vote in political elections for women.

As we continue in the following year, 19th of March, 1911, “National Woman’s Day”was pinned for the very first time, with over one million people from the country called Australia, Denmark, Germany and Switzerland. Most of the women cried for equal rights to vote and engage to be inclusive as leaders in public offices. The women still vowed to stop being asked for sex in return for employment. And still the Americans continued to enjoy the National Women’s Day on the last Sunday in February.

To add on, in 1913, Russian women discovered their first International Women’s Day, the last Saturday of February following their calendar called the Julian calendar.

But even if there were some women strikes, no changes were addressed leading up to 1914. But to an agreement, the“National Woman’s Day”was decided to be held on 8th of March around the World.
