This is the history of women’s day
In the year 1908, on March 8 in America, more than 15,000 women protested on the street for their rights. All these women were working and their demand was that their working hours should be reduced and their wages should also be increased. Along with this, giving them equal place in the society, they should also be given the right to vote. The voice of this movement reached the government. After this, in the year 1909, the Socialist Party of America started celebrating it as International Women’s Day. After this, in the year 1917, during the First World War, the women of Russia also agitated for bread and pieces. After this, King Nicholas gave women the right to vote. For this reason, in the year 1975, the United Nations started celebrating International Women’s Day on 8 March.
