March 10, 2023 International Women’s Day by Maria Bulaong Women all over the World Celebrated the International Women’s Day Last Wednesday March 8, 2023. Women plays an important role in our lives and our society. Her contribution to the world is evident in our history and current events. The United Nation began celebrating International Women’s Day in 1975, But did you know that an International Socialist Women’s Conference was organized in Denmark during the 1910? In Canada the first wave of feminism occurred in the late 19th century and early 20th century. this early activism was focused on increasing women’s role in public life, with goals including women’s suffrage, increased property rights, increased access to education, and recognition as “persons” under the law. This started the fight to be heard, to have equal rights and to be treated as a valuable member of the society. Women are the primary caregivers of elders and children of every country of the world. International studies demonstrate that when the economy and political organization of a society change, women take the lead in helping the family adjust to new realities and challenges. Today, MFL Women’s Committee empowers other women to continue the fight for the freedom, rights and equality of women in the workplace and in the society. Let us celebrate, for every woman counts!
