International Women’s Day
The United Nations began celebrating International Women’s Day in 1975, and in 1977, the UN General Assembly declared March 8 as International Women’s Day in support of women’s rights and global peace. Since then, the United Nations has commemorated the day by establishing a theme each year.
At LISAA School of Design in order to Celebrate International Women’s day we create an opportunity to make workplaces more inclusive for women and address barriers to their success and well-being.
Women are strong, powerful and invincible. With thousands of mantras encouraging women’s existence every day, a special day is indeed a necessity to celebrate women’s achievements in all aspects of life. Whether she’s a teacher, homemaker, economist, engineer or pioneer, women have been making the world a better place with their infinite strength, determination and belief. With power enough to shatter the shackles of patriarchy, women are rising above societal hurdles every single day, making them a stronger force to reckon with, in modern times. This Day, we are celebrating and rejoicing the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women all over the world.
The three colors of International Women’s Day are Purple, Green and White.
Purple signifies justice and dignity,
Green symbolizes hope and
White represents purity.
This Day is celebrated in many countries around the world. It is a day when women are recognized for their achievements without regard to divisions, whether national, ethnic, linguistic, cultural, economic or political.
Since those early years, this Day has assumed a new global dimension for women in developed and developing countries alike. The growing international women’s movement, which has been strengthened by four global United Nations women’s conferences, has helped make the commemoration a rallying point to build support for women’s rights and participation in the political and economic arenas.
To ensure that women continue to progress toward gender equality at work, it’s essential that businesses create inclusive working environments. This International Women’s Day, examine your company’s policies and/or challenge your business leaders to ensure that women receive fair and equitable support at work. Without equal inclusion of women in business, education, health and politics, we will not be able to solve the world’s most pressing problems and achieve a prosperous, vibrant future.
