Today is International Women’s Day and that comes with a lot of different meanings.
International Women’s Day (IWD), originally called International Working Women’s Day, is celebrated on March 8 every year. In different regions the focus of the celebrations ranges from general celebration of respect, appreciation, and love towards women to a celebration for women’s economic, political, and social achievements.
While this celebration started as a Socialist political event, the holiday blended the culture of many countries. However, in some regions, the whole political flavor was lost and the day became an occasion to simply express their love for women somewhat similar to Mother’s Day or Valentine’s Day.
In still other regions, the human rights theme help cause awareness of the struggles of ladies worldwide brought out and examined in a hopeful manner. Some people celebrate the day by wearing purple ribbons.
