Solaris International Womens Day celebration

When it started

La Lucha por la igualdad de Género en la época moderna

March 8th, is celebrated worldwide to be the day that honours women's achievements, Gender equal rights, and women empowerment.

It first started back in 1908 in New York where 15000 women marched for equal rights in voting, better salaries, and fewer work hours, then in 1910 a German woman from Congress, rallied up 100 women form 17 different countries into a join phone call to advocate for this same rights, campaign for women's equality, now the empowerment goes beyond that, as many jobs now have no gender division, and recognizes the extraordinary role from women that made an impact in culture, politics and social through time.

People like Marie Curie, Mother Teresa, Michelle Obama, have inspired others to make a change, but is not limited to CEOs, or first ladies, the contribution can be done by everyday women whether is big or small, the point is that they take a stand, and prove they can do things that men can do step by step.

The United Nations since 1996 has given a theme for the day, this years theme for International Women's Day was: 'Think equal, build smart, innovate for change'. Meaning that more contributions can be made from women, and we all must accept them, as it is for the greater good.Women this day wear purple clothing, to take a diferent point of view from the cancer awareness month color wich is pink.
