Happy Women's Day!

The first International Women’s Day was launched on 8 March 1911 in Copenhagen by Clara Zetkin, Leader of the’Women’s Office’ for the Social A Party in Germany. In just three years time, 2011 will see IWD’s Centenary - 100 years of women’s united action for global equality and change. Organizations around the world have already commenced planning for their IWD Centenary celebrations.
In India, IWD holds a lot of significance. Many celebrations are held during the day. This portrays the power of women in the modern era and how vital their role is in the society
In some celebrations, the day lost its political flavour, and became simply an occasion for men to express their love to the women around them in a way somewhat similar to Mother’s Day and St Valentine’s Day mixed together. In others, however, the political and human rights theme as designated by the United Nations runs strong, and political and social awareness of the struggles of women worldwide are brought out and examined in a hopeful manner.
