Happy International Women’s Day!

In 1910, Clara Zetkin, a German socialist champion for the rights of women, attended the Second International Conference of Socialist Women, held in Copenhagen Denmark. It was there that Clara raised the idea of setting one day aside each year to draw attention to women’s struggles and advances towards economic, social and political equality. In 1857, female garment workers in New York had rallied against their abhorrent working conditions and demanded equal rights. The women were met with hostility and their demonstration was quashed by police. In recognition of March 8th, 15,000 women workers in the needle trade industry marched to demand shorter hours, better pay, union rights and the vote. Clara Zetkin proposed International Women’s Day as a time to focus on issues of gender inequality for women around the world. Her resolution was accepted but it was not until 1977 that the United Nations formally proclaimed March 8th as International Women’s Day.
