Happy International Women’s Day 2021
International Women’s Day has been celebrated for years now, and while many people think of it as a feminist cause, its roots lie in the labour movement. The first-ever Women’s Day was organised in 1911 by the early 20th century Marxist from Germany Clara Zetkin, who was born in Germany’s Wiederau.
Two years later, in 1913, the date was changed to March 8, and it continues to be celebrated as such every year. The theme for this year’s International Women’s Day is #ChooseToChallenge, indicating that a “challenged world is an alert world, and from challenge comes change”.
