International Women's Day

This year marks the 100th anniversary of the International Women's Day.

According to Women Watch, the day was commemorated for the first time on 19 March 1911 in Austria, Denmark, Germany and Switzerland, following its establishment during the Socialist International meeting the prior year. More than one million women and men attended rallies on that first commemoration.

During International Women's Year in 1975, the United Nations Organization began celebrating 8 March as International Women's Day. Two years later, in December 1977, the U.N General Assembly adopted a resolution proclaiming a United Nations Day for Women's Rights and International Peace to be observed on any day of the year by Member States, in accordance with their historical and national traditions


According  to Wikipedia, in different countries the focus of the celebrations ranges from general celebration of respect, appreciation and love towards women to a celebration for women's economic, political and social achievements.

In many countries, the day lost its political flavour, and became simply an occasion for men to express their love for women in a way somewhat similar to a mixture of Mother's Day and St Valentine's Day. In other regions, however, the original political and human rights theme designated by the United Nations runs strong, and political and social awareness of the struggles of women worldwide are brought out and examined in a hopeful manner.

According to the site International Women's Day 2011,  the United Nations Organization has declared the theme for this year's is :  Equal access to education, training and science and technology: Pathway to decent work for women.

In this connection I wish every women in the world a happy International Women's Day.

The theme is sympathetic - the program to implement equal access for women ( to education, training, science and technology) remains vague though. Unfortunately.

isu tentang perempuan di berbagai belahan dunia agaknya belum bergeser dari ranah kekerasan, mas harry. semoga dengan event seperti ini, peran kaum perempuan makin diperhitungkan dan tidak lagi menjadi korban kekerasan. selamat hari perempuan dunia!
