[h=1]International Women’s Day, 2018: Theme, history and celebration[/h]

[h=2]Every year, March 8 is celebrated as International Women's Day. Before the UN adopted it in 1977, the day was mostly celebrated in socialist and Communist countries. The UN celebrates the day on the basis of different themes. This year, the theme is #PressforProgress.[/h]
International Women’s Day, as the name implies, is dedicated to celebrating womanhood, their social, political, cultural, economic achievements and their significant contributions to society. The day also emphasises the importance of gender equality. On this day, people from all across the world come together to partake in the celebration of womanhood. The day has come to be increasingly associated with feminism and equal rights for women. Every year, March 8 is celebrated as International Women’s Day. Before the UN adopted it in 1977, the day was mostly celebrated in socialist and Communist countries. The UN celebrates the day on the basis of different themes. This year, the theme is #PressforProgress.

Observed from the 1900s, Women’s Day is not associated with any one group. But the day brings together state governments across the world, many women welfare and empowerment organisations, non-profits and charities, each focusing on celebrating women. The day was initially celebrated as International Working Women’s Day and the earliest celebration is believed to be held at a socialist-political event in New York City in 1909.

Themes play an important role in the celebration of the day. It widens the context of women and their rights across the world and highlights the atrocities women face and the need to end them. For instance, in 2010, the International Women’s Day the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) brought to the world’s attention, the physical and mental hardships displaced women endure, as a result of armed conflicts and humanitarian crisis. In 2011, former US president Barack Obamadeclared the month of March as Women’s History Month. However, in 2011, there were people in Egypt’s Tahrir Square who reportedly came out to harass women who had come to stand up for their rights on the occasion.

[h=1]Women’s Day: the powerful Trinity in the Council of Ministers[/h]


nirmala-smriti-sushma-womens-day.jpg


It is often said Politics is a man’s world. It is a “dirty profession” and there is no place for “honourable women” in this world of politics. Initially, perhaps public perception changed slightly with the only woman in politics then. Indira Gandhi. The ‘iron woman’ of India. Or the only ‘man’ in the Indian Government. The one who had the ‘courage’ to take on Pakistan. Barring the difference in core political ideology, Indira Gandhi certainly was a woman of steel who changed how the country viewed women’s place in modern politics.
However, it is tragic that many other women, who in their own way stood toe to toe with men in politics, were sidelined by the pages of history.

Growing up, I knew Anandiben Patel, former Chief Minister of Gujarat and also the Education Minister of Gujarat. She was the only woman I had heard of in politics back then. I started observing Indian politics 2004 onwards.

It was the same year when ironically, as Anandiben Patel surged ahead in a man’s world, Sonia Gandhi did the “janana thing” by paying heed to her ‘antaratma ki awaaz‘. She became the quintessential “balidan ki murti” and passed on the baton of leading India to Dr Manmohan Singh, a man who could do it better. But it wasn’t until many years later, when I joined mainstream media as a journalist, that I started noticing nuances of Indian politics. And then in 2014, after the BJP swept the nation in a saffron wave, my curiosity increased multifold. I noticed how the power play works.
