We just celebrated International Women’s Day on the March 8th.  A number of tremendously inspiring stories of women achievers all over the world were brought out by the visual, print, and social media encyclopedia like twitter, facebook, watsapp, and so on.  Social media has become an ocean of knowledge, so I call it social media encyclopedia.

The earliest womens’ day observance was held on February 28, 1909, the last Sunday of February in New York.  It was organised by the Socialist Party oif America in rememberance of the 1908 strike of the International Ladies Garment Workers Union.  Americans continud to celebrate Womens’ day on the last Sunday of February for some time.  Later it was recognised by UN as 8th March to bring in awareness of equality, justice, respect, and honour for women like men.  The major point raised by women initially was the discrimination of sex for employment purposes.
