INTERNATIONAL WOMEN’S DAY

The tradition began with the first National Women’s Day in 1909 and its roots are in campaigning for better pay and voting rights.

What is this year’s theme?
The theme this year is #PressforProgress.

The website says:

“We can’t be complacent. Now, more than ever, there’s a strong call-to-action to press forward and progress gender parity.

“A strong call to #PressforProgress. A strong call to motivate and unite friends, colleagues and whole communities to think, act and be gender inclusive.”

March 8 is a global day celebrating the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women

The day also marks a call to action for accelerating gender parity.

International Women’s Day (IWD) has been observed since in the early 1900’s – a time of great expansion and turbulence in the industrialized world that saw booming population growth and the rise of radical ideologies.

International Women’s Day is a collective day of global celebration and a call for gender parity. No one government, NGO, charity, corporation, academic institution, women’s network or media hub is solely responsible for International Women’s Day.

Many organizations declare an annual IWD theme that supports their specific agenda or cause, and some of these are adopted more widely with relevance than others.

“The story of women’s struggle for equality belongs to no single feminist nor to any one organization but to the collective efforts of all who care about human rights,” says world-renowned feminist, journalist and social and political activist Gloria Steinem.

Thus International Women’s Day is all about unity, celebration, reflection, advocacy and action – whatever that looks like globally at a local level. But one thing is for sure, International Women’s Day has been occurring for well over a century – and continues to grow from strength to strength.

A Day Without A Woman

On International Women’s Day, March 8th, women and our allies will act together for equity, justice and the human rights of women and all gender-oppressed people, through a one-day demonstration of economic solidarity.

In the same spirit of love and liberation that inspired the Women’s March, we join together in making March 8th A Day Without a Woman, recognizing the enormous value that women of all backgrounds add to our socio-economic system – while receiving lower wages and experiencing greater inequities, vulnerability to discrimination, sexual harassment, and job insecurity.

We recognize that trans and gender nonconforming people face heightened levels of discrimination, social oppression and political targeting.

We believe in gender justice.

Anyone, anywhere, can join by making March 8th A Day Without a Woman, in one or all of the following ways:

Women take the day off, from paid and unpaid labor
Avoid shopping for one day (with exceptions for small, women- and minority-owned businesses).
Wear RED in solidarity with A Day Without A Woman

Thoughts for today, #466 …. “Sen. Elizabeth Warren …. Can’t change the truth …. “!!

SHE PERSISTED

#ShePersisted goes viral after Senate votes to silence Warren

BY PAULINA FIROZI

02/08/17 08:10 AM EST

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) inadvertently created a rallying cry for supporters of Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) when he rebuked her after the Senate voted to prevent her from speaking.

As Democrats held the Senate floor overnight to protest Sen. Jeff Sessions’s (R-Ala.) nomination for attorney general, Warren quoted a 1986 letter that the late Coretta Scott King, a civil rights activist and wife of Martin Luther King Jr., wrote opposing Sessions’s nomination for a federal judgeship at the time.

goldswirl

“Sen. Warren was giving a lengthy speech. She had appeared to violate the rule. She was warned. She was given an explanation. Nevertheless, she persisted.”

The Senate voted 49-43 along party lines to prevent Warren from speaking on the Senate floor for the remainder of debate on Sessions’s nomination.

International Women’s Day …. “Google Doodle 2016”!!

~~March 8, 2016~~ 

ONE DAY I WILL

On International Women’s Day, share your aspiration with the world

Over the years, Doodles have commemorated the achievements of women in science, civil rights, journalism, sports, arts, technology and beyond. It’s always an honor to pay tribute to women who have changed the course of history, sometimes in the face of seemingly insurmountable obstacles.

But for this year’s International Women’s Day, we wanted to celebrate the Doodle-worthy women of the future.

So we gathered our cameras and pencils and visited 13 countries where we spoke to 337 women and girls and asked them to complete the sentence,

“One day I will …”

From toddlers to grandmothers, the women in San Francisco, Rio de Janeiro, Mexico City, Lagos, Moscow, Cairo, Berlin, London, Paris, Jakarta, Bangkok, New Delhi and Tokyo all sparkled with personality. Each new city brought more “One day I will”s, more signature dance moves, more hugs, more high-fives.

The aspirations we heard were as varied as the women and girls who shared them, from the very personal – swim with pigs in the Bahamas – to the very global – give a voice to those who can’t speak -and everything in between. When it was done, we found that our own “One day I will…”s had grown bigger and richer, inspired by the women we had met.

~~International Women’s Day Doodle 2016: #OneDayIWill~~

~~Published on Mar 7, 2016~~ 

Over the years, Doodles have marked the achievements of women in science, civil rights, journalism, sports, arts, technology and beyond. But for our 2016 International Women’s Day Doodle, we wanted to celebrate the next generation of Doodle-worthy women—the engineers, educators, leaders, movers and shakers of tomorrow.

So we visited 13 cities around the world and asked 337 girls and women to complete the sentence “One Day I Will …” Then, we made this video.

From San Francisco, Rio de Janeiro, Mexico City, Lagos, Moscow, Cairo, Berlin, London, Paris, Jakarta, Bangkok, New Delhi and Tokyo, the women we met make up a diverse mosaic of personalities, ages and backgrounds. And their aspirations are just as varied—ranging from the global to the very personal, from discovering more digits of pi to becoming a mother to giving a voice to those who can’t speak.

We also asked some more familiar figures to participate, including anthropologist Jane Goodall – who wants to discuss the environment with the Pope – and Nobel Prize Winner Malala Yousafzai and activist Muzoon Almellehan, who are working fearlessly toward a future where every girl can go to school. Despite already impressive accomplishments under their belts, these women continue to dream big.

International Women’s Day: “Inspiring Latinas”!!


Latinas

~~March 8, 2015~~ 

Inspiring Latinas Who’s Contributions To Their Fields Have Changed The World

International Women’s Day is March 8

It is a day that has been observed since the early 1990’s. At first, it was called International Working Women’s day, and the purpose was and is to raise awareness of the struggles of women worldwide and examine them in a hopeful manner. Also, it’s a day to celebrate women’s economic, political and social achievements. There are many women that, throughout the years have succeeded in their fields, creating major social change one way or another. On this day, we would like to honor the Latinas who represent their culture and heritage by highlighting it in everything they do, and who have achieved major recognition for paving the way to a more equal world.

Although there are so many Latinas whose work in changing the world remains anonymous, there are a lot who have been pushed into the spotlight. And of all of those we know, we’re only choosing 15. We are aware that there are thousands of Latinas out there working hard every day so women can enjoy a better environment in politics, the arts, businesses, literature, the fashion world, entertainment, and even in space. And may their example inspire thousands more to educate themselves and grow personally and professionally. Scroll through our gallery to see the 15 Latinas we chose, who are changing the world with their work and commitment.

Google Doodle for today …. “International Women’s Day”!!


 

sis

~~March 8, 2015 & March 8, 2016~~

Google celebrates International Women’s Day with special doodle

In yet another powerful doodle, Google has featured women in various fields of study, from science to music, for its International Women’s Day special edition on its homepage.

The latest doodle shows sketches of women, in roles which are still considered unconventional for them to pursue, within the Google alphabets. From being a scientist, musician, astronaut, chef, athlete, teacher, and writer, it represents the modern-day women.

The doodle’s caption reads: Happy International Women’s Day!

In 2013 Google’s Women’s Day doodle featured hand-drawn faces of 27 women from around the world and Google added real women and some Zap Mama music to create its Women’s Day 2014 video doodle.

In 2012 International Women’s Day coincided with Holi and coincidentally the Women’s Day doodle had a Holi-like feel about it. In 2011, the 100th anniversary of the event, Google had posted an interactive Google Map inviting users to join tens of thousands people on bridges all over the world to show support for women’s causes.

Google has doodled the International Women’s Day on seven previous occasions. First in 2005, then consecutively every year from 2009 to 2015.

PurpBor

International Women’s Day was first celebrated on March 18, 1911 in four European countries – Austria, Denmark, Germany and Switzerland. The United Nations began officially supporting and sponsoring the event since 1975, the year that was designated as International Women’s Year.

W2

International Women’s Day

This is why female achievement across the globe has been marked with a Google Doodle

Today marks International Women’s Day, an annual event that celebrates women’s accomplishments and promotes global gender equality.

This year’s theme is ‘make it happen’ and aims to encourage effective action for advancing and recognizing women. It focuses on women in different professional sectors; the arts, female-owned businesses, in senior leadership roles, and all aspects of working environments where gender parity has still not been achieved.

WMake

In the UK, the gender pay gap still stands at a significant 17.5%, while the Equalities and Human Rights Commission estimates it will take 70 years to see an equal number of female and male directors of FTSE 100 companies.

Unfortunately, gender discrimination does not stop there, with mothers facing an even greater challenge when they try to return to the work place after their maternity leave. A study in August 2014 found one in ten of those in low paid work were demoted to a more junior role when they returned to work.

Google has celebrated International Women’s Day with a doodle presenting women in high achieving roles as astronauts, scientists, athletes, teachers, musicians, chefs and writers – roles that were once reserved solely for men. It links out to a series of stories highlighting why such an event is still so crucial over a century after it was first launched. The doodle’s caption reads: “Happy International Women’s Day!’

The first International Women’s Day was held in 1911 and is celebrated annually on 8 March with thousands of events across the world.

It was honored for the first time in Austria, Denmark, Germany and Switzerland on 19 March, where more than one million men and women attended rallies campaigning for women’s rights to work, vote, be trained, to hold public office and treated equally to their male peers.

The United Nations has its own gender equality related theme each year. This year it is ‘empowering women – empowering humanity – picture it!’. It imagines a world where girls and women can have equal rights, exercise their own choices, earn at the same rate as men and live free of gender-based violence and sexual abuse.

“As it appears in …. “
