International Women's Day in Quang Binh: Have fun and explore activities


International Women's Day, which is also known as the United Nations Day for Women's Rights and International Peace, is observed every year on 8th March. This day serves as a crucial point in the movement to advocate for women's rights and draws attention towards issues such as gender equality, reproductive rights as well as violence and abuse against women. The United Nations formalized this day in 1975.

Nowadays this is a global day of celebration that aims to honor and appreciate the contributions of women across all spheres of social life. This day presents an excellent opportunity for us to acknowledge and celebrate the remarkable achievements that women have made while also promoting gender equality and empowering women worldwide.

The origin of International Women's Day

March 8th has its origins in the struggle of female textile workers in New York City in 1857. They organized protests demanding reduced working hours, increased wages, and improved working conditions. This movement soon spread to many countries, and it became a symbol of the fight for women's rights.

In 1910, during the 2nd International Congress of Socialist Women held in Copenhagen, Denmark, Clara Zetkin, a German social activist, suggested that March 8th should be celebrated every year as Women's Day. Since then, this day has been widely celebrated across the world.

In Vietnam, March 8th marks the anniversary of the Trung Sisters' uprising, which is a significant event in the nation's history. The Trung Sisters are national heroines who drove out the Northern invaders and regained sovereignty, bringing pride to the country. The victory of their uprising is considered an eternal epic, expressing the will for independence and national pride. Moreover, it testifies to the strength of Vietnamese women in human history in the cause of building and protecting their homeland. On this day, men usually give women flowers (usually roses) and gifts, and events are organized in agencies, organizations, and families where women work and participate.
