Because of the international Women's Day
almost every man was buying flowers this weekend.
...
The first IWD was observed on 28 February 1909 in the United States following a declaration by the Socialist Party of America.
Among other relevant historic events,
it came to commemorate the 1911 Triangle Shirtwaist Factory fire.
The idea of having an international women's day
was first put forward at the turn of the 20th century amid
rapid world industrialization and economic expansion
that led to protests over working conditions.
By urban legend,
women from clothing and textile factories staged one such protest
on 8 March 1857 in New York City.
The garment workers were protesting against
very poor working conditions and low wages.
The protesters were attacked and dispersed by police.
These women established their first labor union
in the same month two years later.
.
On occasion of 2009 International Women's Day
the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC)
has warned that the specific health-care needs of women
are often ignored or insufficiently taken
into account in war situations.
.
In the world’s least developed countries,
many of which are at war,
women are 300 times more likely to die in childbirth
or from pregnancy-related complications
than in developed countries,
according to UNICEF.
While armed conflicts and other violence affect entire communities,
women are particularly at risk of rape and other forms of sexual violence.
Because of poor security conditions
or because they have no means of transportation,
it is often impossible for women
to reach a health-care facility so as to give birth safely.
