|International Women's Day: March 8th, 2008!
ABOUT INTERNATIONAL WOMEN'S DAY
Women's Day 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.
Great unrest and critical debate was occurring amongst women. Women's oppression
and inequality was spurring women to become more vocal and active in campaigning
for change. Then in 1908, 15,000 women marched through New York City demanding
shorter hours, better pay and voting rights.
In accordance with a declaration by the Socialist Party of America, the first
National Woman's Day (NWD) was observed across the United States on 28 February.
Women continued to celebrate NWD on the last Sunday of February until 1913.
At a Socialist International meeting in Copenhagen, an International Women's Day
of no fixed date was proposed to honour the women's rights movement and to
assist in achieving universal suffrage for women. Over 100 women from 17
countries unanimously agreed the proposal. 3 of these women were later elected
the first women to the Finnish parliament.
the decision agreed at Copenhagen in 1911, International Women's Day (IWD) was
honoured the first time in Austria, Denmark, Germany and Switzerland on 19
March. More than one million women and men attended IWD rallies campaigning for
women's rights to work, vote, be trained, to hold public office and end
discrimination. However less than a week later on 25 March, the tragic 'Triangle
Fire' in New York City took the lives of more than 140 working women, most of
them Italian and Jewish immigrants. This disastrous event drew significant
attention to working conditions and labour legislation in the United States that
became a focus of subsequent International Women's Day events. 1911 also saw
women's 'Bread and Roses' campaign.
On the eve of World War I campaigning for peace, Russian women observed their
first International Women's Day on the last Sunday in February 1913. In 1914
further women across Europe held rallies to campaign against the war and to
express women's solidarity.
On the last Sunday of February, Russian women began a strike for "bread and
peace" in response to the death over 2 million Russian soldiers in war. Opposed
by political leaders the women continued to strike until four days later the
Czar was forced to abdicate and the provisional Government granted women the
right to vote. The date the women's strike commenced was Sunday 23 February on
the Julian calendar then in use in Russia. This day on the Gregorian calendar in
use elsewhere was 8 March.
1918 - 1999
Since its birth in the socialist movement, International Women's Day has grown
to become a global day of recognition and celebration across developed and
developing countries alike. For decades, IWD has grown from strength to strength
annually. For many years the United Nations has held an annual IWD conference to
coordinate international efforts for women's rights and participation in social,
political and economic processes. 1975 was designated as 'International Women’s
Year' by the United Nations. Women's organisations and governments around the
world have also observed IWD annually on 8 March by holding large-scale events
that honour women's advancement and while diligently reminding of the continued
vigilance and action required to ensure that women's equality is gained and
maintained in all aspects of life.
2000 - 2007
is now an official holiday in Armenia, Russia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Bulgaria,
Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Macedonia, Moldova, Mongolia, Tajikistan, Ukraine,
Uzbekistan and Vietnam. The tradition sees men honouring their mothers, wives,
girlfriends, colleagues, etc with flowers and small gifts. In some countries IWD
has the equivalent status of Mother's Day where children give small presents to
their mothers and grandmothers.
The new millennium has witnessed a significant change and attitudinal shift in
both women's and society's thoughts about women's equality and emancipation.
Many from a younger generation feel that 'all the battles have been won for
women' while many feminists from the 1970's know only too well the longevity and
ingrained complexity of patriarchy. With more women in the boardroom, greater
equality in legislative rights, and an increased critical mass of women's
visibility as impressive role models in every aspect of life, one could think
that women have gained true equality. The unfortunate fact is that women are
still not paid equally to that of their male counterparts, women still are not
present in equal numbers in business or politics, and globally women's
education, health and the violence against them is worse than that of men.
However, great improvements have been made. We do have female astronauts and
prime ministers, school girls are welcomed into university, women can work and
have a family, women have real choices. And so the tone and nature of IWD has,
for the past few years, moved from being a reminder about the negatives to a
celebration of the positives.
Annually on 8 March, thousands of events are held throughout the world to
inspire women and celebrate their achievements. While there are many large-scale
initiatives, a rich and diverse fabric of local activity connects women from all
around the world ranging from political rallies, business conferences,
government activities and networking events through to local women's craft
markets, theatric performances, fashion parades and more.
global corporations have also started to more actively support IWD by running
their own internal events and through supporting external ones. For example, on
8 March search engine and media giant Google even changes its logo on its global
search pages. Corporations like HSBC host the UK's largest and longest running
IWD event delivered by women's company Aurora. Last year Nortel sponsored IWD
activities in over 20 countries and thousands of women participated. Nortel
continues to connect its global workforce though a coordinated program of
high-level IWD activity, as does Accenture both virtually and offline. Accenture
supports more than 2,000 of its employees to participate in its International
Women's Day activities that include leadership development sessions, career
workshops and corporate citizenship events held across six continents - in eight
cities in the United States and in Argentina, Australia, Brazil, Canada,
Germany, India, Ireland, Italy, Japan, Spain, South Africa and the UK. Accenture
also coordinated am IWD webcast featuring stories about Accenture women
worldwide that ran uninterrupted for 30 hours across 11 time zones via
Accenture's intranet. Year on year IWD is certainly increasing in status. The
United States even designates the whole month of March as 'Women's History
So make a difference, think globally and act locally !! Make everyday
International Women's Day. Do your bit to ensure that the future for girls is
bright, equal, safe and rewarding.
STATEMENT BY THE PRIME MINISTER ON INTERNATIONAL
March 7, 2008
Prime Minister Stephen Harper today issued the following statement on the
occasion of International Women's Week, highlighted by International Women�s Day
on March 8th, 2008:
Women' s Day 2008 is a time to celebrate the accomplishments of women. This
year's theme Strong Women, Strong World, echoes our Government�s commitment to
providing women with the tools and opportunities they need and deserve to
achieve their full potential. Safety, security and freedom are the indelible
rights of all women, not just Canadian women. This week, our country was proud
to host a group of Afghan women parliamentarians, whose presence reminds us that
the fight for gender equality is far from over. We salute their courage, along
with the bravery of all the Canadian men and women who are supporting their
quest for freedom, democracy and equality in Afghanistan.
Just as we recognize the challenges for women internationally, our Government
recognizes there is still work to be done in our own country. We are taking
action through measures to enhance the economic security of women by modernizing
federal labour standards. We are expanding business opportunities for women,
supporting a balance between work and family, and improving job opportunities
for vulnerable groups. We have introduced measures to both raise the standard of
living among older women and offer affordable housing for women in need. We are
developing an Action Plan to advance equality for women by improving their
economic and social conditions, and women�s participation in democratic life.
We are also taking action to remedy an inexcusable and longstanding legislative
gap regarding on-reserve matrimonial rights. Our Government is moving to provide
basic rights to on-reserve women to protect them and their children in the event
a relationship breaks down. This will significantly improve the quality of life
for women and children living on reserves across Canada and we urge the
opposition to support these measures.
Our Government is committed to safeguarding all Canadians against those who
commit serious and violent crimes. Our Tacking Violent Crime legislation
recently became law � finally putting an end to lenient penalties for repeat or
violent sexual offenders who prey on women and girls. Our Government has also
raised the age of consent from 14 to 16 years, and we are taking on the issue of
human trafficking, which remains a growing concern for women and girls, in
Canada and internationally.
Canada must be ever-vigilant, continuing to develop as a country that values and
promotes women here in Canada and around the world.
I ask all Canadians to join me in celebrating International Woman�s Day, Strong
Women and a Strong Canada.
The Prime Minister's Office: pm@PM.GC.CA
