Hello, P-assangers! Back again with PIDAS. How are you, P-assangers? We hope all of you happy and even happier by reading our articles.

Maybe some of P-assangers still don’t know about this commemoration but believe us this information is very interesting. So, don’t forget to read this article until the end, P-assangers!

“International Women’s Day (IWD)” is one of the most important days that we must celebrate every March 8th. International Women’s Day (IWD) means a day when women or girls can celebrate achievements in social, economic, cultural, and political. Not only that, but today is also a celebration for women about the rights to gender equality and a charity that focus on women.

International Women’s Day (IWD) began to be noticed and discussed in 1908 with 15,000 demonstrating about payment, working hours, and the right to vote in New York. In 1910, Clara Zetkin put forward the idea of ​​establishing an international women’s day and it ended with the agreement on March 19, 1911. The celebration was first held in Austria. This date was inaugurated by the United Nations in 1975 and began to be celebrated every year on March 8.

By 2021, the International Women’s Day (IWD) used theme is, “Women in Leadership: Achieving an Equal Future in the World of COVID-19”. This theme is used to celebrate the efforts of women and girls around the world during the pandemic. Moreover, during this pandemic, many doctors, nurses, or other female workers have been battling the coronavirus.

Apart from the struggle of women during the pandemic, of course, another important issue is about women fighting for gender equality between men and women which is sometimes still underestimated by some people. Whereas, all people are human beings who have the same rights, both men either women.

How’s the article, P-assangers? Now, we all know more about this topic. Here, PIDAS hopes that P-assangers can be more interested or be able to celebrate this important day every year as a form of respect for women’s struggles. So, that’s all the article that PIDAS can share with you today. P-assangers. Stay healthy, stay happy, and goodbye, P-assangers ~
