International Women’s Day is the story of ordinary women as makers of history; it is rooted in the centuries-old struggle of women to participate in society on an equal footing with men.

On March 8, 1857, a demonstration on Manhattan’s lower east side took place. The women stopped work to protest bad working conditions, a twelve hour day and low pay.

More than 50 years later, on March 8, 1908, working women in New York marched under banners demanding equal pay, child care centres, the right to vote, and the end to hard working conditions. Their slogan- «Bread and Roses» sang through the streets: «Bread», the symbol of economic security, and «Roses», the symbol for a better life.

In 1910 Women’s Day was taken up by feminists throughout the country. Later that year delegates went to the second International Conference of Women in Copenhagen.

Inspired by the actions of US women workers and their socialist sisters, Clara Zetkin; had already framed a proposal to put to the conference of women that women throughout the world should focus on a particular day each year to press for their demands. Zetkin’s suggestion was greeted by 100 women from 17 countries with unanimous approval and International Women’s Day was the result.
