Women's Day History

International Women’s Day (IWD) is celebrated on March 8 every year. It is a focal point in the movement for women’s rights.

After the Socialist Party of America organised a Women’s Day on February 28, 1909 in New York, the 1910 International Socialist Woman’s Conference suggested a Women’s Day be held annually. After women gained suffrage in Soviet Russia in 1917, March 8 became a national holiday there. The day was then predominantly celebrated by the socialist movement and communist countries until it was adopted in 1975 by the United Nations.

Today, International Women’s Day is a public holiday in some countries and largely ignored elsewhere. In some places, it is a day of protest; in others, it is a day that celebrates womanhood.

International Women’s Day History

The earliest Women’s Day observance, called “National Woman’s Day,” was held on February 28, 1909 in New York, organized by the Socialist Party of America at the suggestion of Theresa Malkiel. Though there have been claims that the day was commemorating a protest by women garment workers in New York on March 8, 1857, researchers have described this as a myth.

In August 1910, an International Socialist Women’s Conference was organized to precede the general meeting of the Socialist Second International in Copenhagen, Denmark. Inspired in part by the American socialists, German Socialist Luise Zietz proposed the establishment of an annual Women’s Day and was seconded by fellow socialist and later communist leader Clara Zetkin, supported by Käte Duncker, although no date was specified at that conference. Delegates (100 women from 17 countries) agreed with the idea as a strategy to promote equal rights including suffrage for women. The following year on March 19, 1911, IWD was marked for the first time, by over a million people in Austria, Denmark, Germany and Switzerland. In the Austro-Hungarian Empire alone, there were 300 demonstrations. In Vienna, women paraded on the Ringstrasse and carried banners honouring the martyrs of the Paris Commune. Women demanded that they be given the right to vote and to hold public office. They also protested against employment sex discrimination. The Americans continued to celebrate National Women’s Day on the last Sunday in February.

Female members of the Australian Builders Labourers Federation march on International Women’s Day 1975 in Sydney. In 1913 Russian women observed their first International Women’s Day on the last Saturday in February (by the Julian calendar then used in Russia).

In 1914 International Women’s Day was held on March 8 in Germany, possibly because that day was a Sunday, and now it is always held on March 8 in all countries. The 1914 observance of the Day in Germany was dedicated to women’s right to vote, which German women did not win until 1918.

In London there was a march from Bow to Trafalgar Square in support of women’s suffrage on March 8, 1914. Sylvia Pankhurst was arrested in front of Charing Cross station on her way to speak in Trafalgar Square.

On March 8, 1917, on the Gregorian calendar, in the capital of the Russian Empire, Petrograd, women textile workers began a demonstration, covering the whole city. This marked the beginning of the February Revolution, which alongside the October Revolution made up the Russian Revolution. Women in Saint Petersburg went on strike that day for “Bread and Peace” – demanding the end of World War I, an end to Russian food shortages, and the end of czarism. Leon Trotsky wrote, “23 February (8th March) was International Woman’s Day and meetings and actions were foreseen. But we did not imagine that this ‘Women’s Day’ would inaugurate the revolution. Revolutionary actions were foreseen but without date. But in the morning, despite the orders to the contrary, textile workers left their work in several factories and sent delegates to ask for support of the strike… which led to mass strike… all went out into the streets.”[15] Seven days later, the Emperor of Russia, Nicholas II abdicated and the provisional Government granted women the right to vote.

Following the October Revolution, the Bolshevik Alexandra Kollontai and Vladimir Lenin made it an official holiday in the Soviet Union, but it was a working day until 1965. On May 8, 1965 by the decree of the USSR Presidium of the Supreme Soviet International Women’s Day was declared a non-working day in the USSR “in commemoration of the outstanding merits of Soviet women in communistic construction, in the defense of their Fatherland during the Great Patriotic War, in their heroism and selflessness at the front and in the rear, and also marking the great contribution of women to strengthening friendship between peoples, and the struggle for peace. But still, women’s day must be celebrated as are other holidays.”

From its official adoption in Soviet Russia following the Revolution in 1917, the holiday was predominantly celebrated in communist countries and by the communist movement worldwide. It was celebrated by the communists in China from 1922.  After the founding of the People’s Republic of China on October 1, 1949 the State Council proclaimed on December 23 that March 8 would be made an official holiday with women in China given a half-day off.

Communist leader Dolores Ibárruri led a women’s march in Madrid in 1936 on the eve of the Spanish Civil War. The United Nations began celebrating International Women’s Day in the International Women’s Year, 1975. In 1977, the United Nations General Assembly invited member states to proclaim March 8 as the UN Day for women’s rights and world peace.

Trans Bills gets President’s assent, Become Low!

Trans Bills gets President's assent, Become Low!

The Indian government has told the Transgender Persons (Protection of Rights) Act notwithstanding across the country challenges the enactment in its present structure. The Bill unobtrusively got consent from President Ram Nath Kovind on December 5 and was made into a law.

Loading...

Ever since the Bill was tabled in the Parliament, transgender communities and allies have been protesting against it for various reasons. They’ve said that the Act treats trans persons as inferior citizens, and is in contravention to the 2014 NALSA judgment of the Supreme Court which enshrined the right to self-determination. The day the Bill was passed in the Rajya Sabha, transgender communities and activists called it a ‘Gender Justice Murder Day’.

Trans Bill

Trans Bill

A portion of the issues with the Bill are that it requires a transgender individual to go to a District Magistrate and a District Screening Committee to have their sexual orientation personality confirmed. A modified authentication for the equivalent must be gotten if the individual has experienced sexual orientation assertion medical procedure. There are additionally no arrangements for offer in the situation that the authentication is denied by the DM to the person. Further, the Act doesn’t discuss bookings for individuals of the trans networks in instruction or business.

It has also designated the punishment for sexual assault on a trans person to a maximum of two years whereas the minimum punishment for raping a cis gender woman is 10 years. This, activists have argued, deems transgender persons as lesser, as inferior.

Transgender Community

Transgender Community

Protests have been consistently happening across the country against this law. Protesters had been asking for the Bill to be sent back to the Parliament, to be looked at by a select committee and modified to reflect the concerns of the transgender communities. Agitators have also said that a major problem with the law was that its present form was reached without taking feedback from transgender persons.

Those fighting the Bill had additionally said that they would thump on the Supreme Court’s entryways in the event that it was passed in its present structure.

How do we deals with Rape? You can suggest your opinion!

How do we deals with Rape You can suggest your opinion!

The cruel rape and murder of the girl vet close to Hyderabad have appropriately shocked the whole nation on the issue of rape and murder. In any case, no exercises seem to have been learned by the specialists since the Nirbhaya case seven years ago, as a few progressively terrible occurrences have been accounted for, including the ones at Kathua, Unnao, Muzaffarnagar and now Hyderabad.

Loading...

The Nirbhaya fund was set up but has hardly been utilized. Safe City projects, mobile apps, self-defense training for women, helpline numbers… all these don’t seem to guarantee safety for women or deter men from committing violent sexual crimes against women and girls in this country.

There is certainly something rotten in the way that we as a society respond to crimes, especially of a sexual nature. The entire system seems to conspire to support the perpetrators and do nothing to protect the potential or actual victims of the crimes. Take the lax response of the local police who had been contacted by the woman’s family even as the crime was being committed. They were given the run-around even as the killers were committing the crime. The entire country was up in arms against the men, who were caught after they allegedly committed the crime. But do girls and women have to be raped and die violent deaths for our police to work?

A couple of days after the fact, the nation woke up to the news that the four men captured for the Hyderabad occurrence had all been killed in experience, as they had attempted to escape when they were being taken to the location of the wrongdoing for recreation, as required for the examination.

Mee too Move

Mee too Move

This has typically inspired two reactions – one of rapture, as local people were requesting an open execution of the four, and the other, an increasingly contemplated one, requiring the maintaining of the standard of law. In any case, taking into account that the lawful procedure on account of Nirbhaya’s executioners is as yet progressing much following a long time since the condemning, “fair treatment” has become an awful term. Any proposal that “the law will follow all the way through” is gotten with absolute nauseate and pessimism.

Perhaps rightly so. A young law student showed the courage to file a complaint of sexual assault against the head of a religious and educational institution, and we see that while she is in jail for alleged blackmail of the religious leader, he is in the comfort of a hospital in UP.

The family of a young girl, who was allegedly raped by a powerful politician in Unnao, has been hounded continuously. Her father was killed after alleged police torture and her lawyer was severely injured in the same suspicious accident that killed her aunt.  In another case from the same place, the accused, out on bail, had the temerity to set the victim on fire when she was on her way to court. It seems there is no fear of any kind for powerful perpetrators in UP’s badlands.HIGHEST RAPE CRIME 2017

Is there any answer to this foundational spoil in our general public, our country, and the legal structures?

Indeed. The arrangement is covering up on display. Quick track courts for violations against ladies, particularly rape. We as of now have such courts to attempt financial offenses, and POCSO courts to take care of instances of rape on kids.

Set up quick track courts with uniquely prepared judges and investigators to attempt these cases. The preparation should cover all parts of viciousness against ladies, have state-of-the-art legitimate assets, and include imaginative equity conveyance with affectability to the lived substances of ladies, particularly those from the minimized and helpless segments of society. The legitimate crew can have a significant and positive task to carry out in this.

Prevention of such crimes is a very important aspect. Rather than put the onus on the women, by encouraging self-defence training for women and girls, it is more effective, humane and civilized to address the misogyny, casteism, and communalism in our culture.

The socialization of men and boys has to include respect for women, domestic work/labor and the rule of law. The fact that men and women are legally as well as socially equal has to be emphasized. Our education system has to incorporate such aspects at the school and secondary levels. Community and family structures have to revisit their priorities and make the necessary shifts in attitudes and norms.

At an increasingly functional level, since numerous rough wrongdoings appear to occur in zones including streets and open spaces, the vehicle area – service of surface vehicle, interstate specialists, RTOs, RTCs, coordinations organizations and so forth., need to plan and actualize a sexual orientation sensitization program for all the work force and HR in their segment. It ought to be required for their staff and contractors to experience sex preparing and have a fundamental of consciousness of the standards, laws, and arrangements concerning sexual brutality in the nation.

The media also has an essential task to carry out in this significant psycho-social/conduct reboot in our general public, which is obviously the need of great importance.

Onion Cross 200 Rs in Market Price. But Farmers Get Only Rs 8 for 1 Kg. Who Makes All The Profit

Onion involves a special part in Indian kitchens and is appreciated in huge amounts by people in the subcontinent. In any case, it’s taking off costs that have diminished the spirits in numerous family units.

Loading...

Accessible at a rate cross 200 Rs for 1Kg today, it is certain that not every person can bear to get it. The cost, as obvious, is considerably costlier than that of petroleum and diesel, which sparked massive protests across the country every time that a certain paisa is increased. But, while we may blame our ill-luck and the apathy of the Prime Minister Narendra Modi-led NDA government at the center for this punch on the common man’s wallet, the difficulties that farmers are withstanding are manifold more worrisome.

As we find in the above video, a farmer from Maharashtra is crying over the ludicrous value he got for his onion. The video has now turned into a viral on social media and the farmer who hails from Ahmednagar needed to sell his harvest at a simple Rs 8 for every kg.

“I had to employ laborers to pick onions from the field in rain,” the devastated farmer is heard saying in the video. “How do I pay for them? What should I take home to feed my family?” he asks, before alleging that the government is insensitive towards the farmers and has no interest in their distress.

In any case, he isn’t the one and only one. A huge number of ranchers endeavor day and night to create the harvests that feed the nation’s populace on the loose. They have been an ignored parcel for decades however the unsparing imbalance between the value that they are paid for the yield and the retail cost of a similar thing has seen an uncommon ascent over the recent years.

While there are many factors behind it, the most significant is the continued apathy of the state and the agriculture ministry towards their concerns. There is an almost 900 per cent difference between the price customers are coughing up for the onion and what the farmers are getting in return.

The seriousness of the matter can be best assessed by following the money trail in the onion business. If customers are paying Rs 99/kg and farmers are only getting Rs 8/kg, you might consider asking yourself where does the rest Rs 91 go?
