The international community celebrates Women’s Day on March 8 every year. It is a day to recognize, appreciate and celebrate the achievements made by women all around the world. The day also serves as a reminder of the inequalities and discrimination that are still prevalent in our society.

Originating from the labor movements of the early 20th century, which fought for better working conditions and women’s rights, International Women’s Day has evolved into a global day of recognition and action. It advocates for gender equality, women’s rights, and access to education and professional opportunities for women. Events, rallies, and discussions worldwide highlight the progress made towards these goals, as well as the work that remains to be done. By honoring the remarkable contributions of women in various fields – from science and politics to arts and social movements – International Women’s Day serves as a catalyst for change and a source of inspiration for future generations.

While it is important to celebrate Women’s Day, it is equally important to remember that there are many ways we can make a difference and support women from all walks of life. Here are some thoughtful & meaningful things to do on Women’s Day:

Support Women-owned Businesses

Women-owned businesses are growing in popularity, with one in five American businesses owned by a woman. You can also wish a Happy Womens Day in a different way by supporting local businesses owned by women.

Have a Debate on Women’s Issues

Q&A with a group of change-making women

A great way to learn from women is to ask them questions! Ask them about the challenges they faced during their careers, what they wish they had known when they were younger, how they stay motivated in their work, and more! You can host this event as a panel discussion or even as an open forum where anyone can ask questions.

Make your workplace more inclusive

Encourage your employer to commit to supporting policies that help close the gender pay gap by signing our pledge for a change! You can also ask the organization to provide resources for employers on how they can make their workplaces more inclusive for all employees– especially women!

Show your Support for Women’s Rights

Show your support for women’s rights

Everyone must show their support for women’s rights so that they can feel safe in society and at home. If you want to show your support for women’s rights, then speak up against any form of discrimination or violence against women; do not let anyone take advantage of them because they are physically weaker than men; speak up if you hear someone saying something sexist about a woman; do not laugh at sexist jokes; be sensitive towards other people’s feelings.

Support local Organizations that Advocate for Women’s Rights

Household chores? 50-50!

Household chores? 50-50

A lot of people think that only women have to do household work while men don’t have any responsibility in this regard. If you want to change their mindset, then educate them about household work and make them aware of the fact that men, too, have to do some kind of housework. Pass the message in society that household work is not only a responsibility of a woman.

Understand Women’s day-to-day Struggle

Understand about women’s day to day struggle

The journey of women from ancient times to now has been a very hard one, which was not easy at all. Women go through a lot in their lives. They are subject to domestic violence, sexual abuse, respect, overloaded with work, and many other things that happen in their daily lives. They also have to deal with issues like child abuse, eve teasing, and so on. We should recognize these problems as serious and make society learn that people who cause them should be thrown out of the community.

Spread Awareness about Sexual Abuse and Domestic Violence

Spread awareness about sexual abuse and domestic violence

Sexual abuse is rampant in our society today because we don’t talk about it openly enough, and people don’t know how to react when they find out about it happening around them, or someone else they know is being affected by it (either as a perpetrator or survivor). We need to spread awareness about this so that people get an idea of what sexual abuse really is, how it affects its victims, and how to support them when someone comes forward with their story of being sexually abused.

Final Words

Women’s Day is a special occasion that can be celebrated in so many different ways. From getting a Womens Day cake for them to volunteering for a campaign, the options are endless. The more we get involved in making our world a better place for women, the more we empower ourselves and the next generation of girls to fight for gender equality. With this blog, we hope to spread our contribution of words about Women’s Day.
