Happy International Women's Day #makeithappen ♥

Hello my glamous friends and happy international women's day !


I remember learning a bit about international women's day school however , the teachers never spoke about it in depth . So I thought I was an good idea to give you my friend more of an insight into what (IWD) is and how and why it happens .  Every year  International Women's Day is celebrated on March 8. The first International Women's Day was in 1911. Thousands of events are done to mark the economic, political and social achievements of women. Organisations, governments, charities, educational institutions and  women's groups celebrate the day and many more .


Many thanks to Emmeline Pankhurst  who was a British  political activist and leader of the British suffragette movement who helped women win the right to vote  In 1999 .
 
 Many charities, NGOs and Governments also adopt a relevant theme or campaign to mark the day. For example, organisations like the UN, Oxfam, Women for Women, Care International, Plan, World Association of Girl Guides & Girl Scouts (WAGGGS) and more - run exciting and powerful campaigns that raise awareness and encourage donations for good causes. The UN has been declaring an annual equality theme for many years.
Lets Paint The World Purple : Great Britain adopted the colour scheme of purple , white and green to symbolise the plight of the Suffragettes. Purple symbolised justice and dignity - two values strongly associated with women's equality. The three colours were used for banners, flags, rosettes and badges to show solidarity.
what are you doing for international woman's day ?
