What: What Caused This Day To Emerge?
When: Going Back To The Beginning.
In 1908, when women began to voice out for their rights and actively engage in campaigning for change, National Women’s Day came about to commemorate the rights of women in 1909, initiated by the Socialist Party of America. It was proposed to honour the 1908 garment workers’ strike in New York, where women protested against their working conditions. It was in 1910 when Clara Zetkin, who was then the Leader of the ‘Women’s Office’ for the Social Democratic Party in Germany, proposed the idea of celebrating the International Women’s Day every year in every country and on the same day to press for their demands. With unanimous approval from several women present at that point, International Women’s Day was born. However, it was not an official until 1911.
