Happy International Women’s Day to all the ladies out there! A day of rejoicing which is being celebrated since 1900’s and even now holds so much importance. As society is developing one day at a time, women who were thought as a weaker gender till now are making their importance felt. Gone are the days when the only work for women used to be home chores. Now we are everywhere and with each day making a big difference to the world.
International Women’s Day Origin
Since the early 1900s this day on the 8th of March every year is celebrated as International Women’s Day all over the world and calls for many fun activities to mark this day. Children prepare plays in schools, various skits are also performed in the theater. Go towards a more mature side and you will find many road shows and nukkad nataks doing more of a sarcastic thing by hitting at the anomalies of the situation and what women are still facing today.
Did you know why Siri has a woman’s voice? It is because women are considered to be the ones who give advice! There are many jobs for which women are considered more appropriate rather than men. These are human resources, medical, etc… women are today present at leading positions in corporate and hence becoming a source of inspiration for all.
As Madhuri Dixit rightly said, “Women need to be empowered through the strongest tool – education“. They don’t need to be subservient to anyone, but at the same time, men must change their mindset towards women. If they are more respectful towards them, then things will change at the grassroots level. It will happen slowly, but everyone has to move together.” This clearly brings out what society needs today. How can you blame a victim and let the culprit roam free? Will a woman changing and letting go of her freedom improve the current situation or for that matter taking a more general view, help in reducing crimes?
The mindset that has been running so much among humans for so long needs to be changed. Even after being amazingly talented and doing hard work, women are not promoted enough as they should be in many corporate. The name “Glass Ceiling Effect” has been given to it to make it sound so fancy but this still cannot hide the ugly truth.
So go ahead and make the women in your life feel special today! Wishing a very International Women’s Day to all the lovely ladies out there! Your mom, the lovely sister who always saved you when you got bad grades, the love of your life and so many others!
And all you ladies out there, don’t be intimidated by what society thinks of you and wants you to do. It is your life and hence you must take control of it.
