When was Womens Day 2014 ?
The last century had witnessed a significant attitudinal change towards women. Their contribution towards the society, culture and nation building received recognition. They gained equality and emancipation. To acknowledge their service, United Nations celebrates International Women's Day every year to respect their economic, political, and social achievements.
International Women's Day is observed every year on 8th March.
This year also it will be celebrated with equal zeal, excitement and enthusiasm. The day falls on Saturday.
This day has a tremendous historical significance. On this day of the year 1917, the women labourers of Russian Empire revolted against the ruling Czar at St. Petersburg. Their protest was against the food shortages and the discrimination of wages. Their revolt is known as the "Bread and Peace" revolt which gradually resulted into a massive public outrage leading the fall of Russian Empire after 4 days. The provisional Government granted them the right to vote which heralded the new era in the progress of the women.
In the year 1975, the United Nations accepted and recognised 8th March as the International Women's Day.
In the recent decades, women have made significant progress in every possible sphere. We have witnessed their growth in the active labour force including the gallant military services. Every legislation promises them equal opportunities guaranteeing them every fundamental right. Today no one gets surprised if a woman gets selected as the President or the Prime Minister of the country. Significantly, India is one of the first countries to have a woman Prime Minister.
