March 8: WHAT DO YOU CELEBRATE?
It is worth remembering that date and its symbolic meaning for the Women's Day. not to throw away, provided they return to being an international day that commemorates, as now, women have always been leaders in history, even if obscured or forgotten, as has been long and difficult path of conquest of their rights. And as there is above all to be done to make them effective or maintain them.
should just say to its most current interpretation of commercial origin, associated with the purchase of mimosa, chocolates and gadgets unlikely to equal the Mother's Day, Father's Day, lovers, the singles, the grandfather and grandmother, holidays "invented" on the calendar. Over the years there has been emptied of contents: March 8th is a day stimulus for the real application of democratic equality for all, without discrimination whether overt or covert.
You say it is a commercial transaction in the celebration this year of the centenary of the day, since it is even uncertain of the source data. Anyway here's a quick overview for clarity.
In 1997 the UN called on Member States to hold a day of women's rights. Also in 1977, UNESCO proclaimed March 8 INTERNATIONAL WOMEN'S DAY. Why that date?
Perhaps because the March 8, 1857 in New York was the first major event organized of textile workers against the inhuman working conditions, demanding more security and rights.
vain in 1908 the burning of the factory COTTON remains shrouded in legend, but in March 1911 the Triangle Shirtwaist fire COMPANY really caused the death of 140 workers, mostly Italian and Jewish, raising the status of martyrs. Still
certainly the March 8, 1917, the workers of S. Petersburg were demonstrating against war and hunger. difficult to say what the event was taken into consideration, it is a fact that has become a given of the history of women's emancipation.
more democracy and less mimosas, then?
Originally it was the yellow mimosa., National flower of Australia, was chosen to represent, and it is practically only in Italy in 1946 for the first March 8 post-war because lilies and violets in use in Europe We were rare. Thrush is in fact the official symbol of 8 March and is now back in Eastern Europe fashion in many countries except Poland, for the lack of sympathy for Russia.
the violets, the symbol of love and admiration, are historic landmark, particularly in France, since 1947 for the celebrations of the first woman Minister of Health.
celebrations on all continents: in China, no flowers, but spare time, the greatest luxury possible at present since the women on 8 March only work half a day.
So what missing women after 40 years, lost the legacy of '68? What happens in this society in which we are distracted from time to time flattered, exploited, abused, certainly not very respected?
If we think the world of work, discrimination against women as allies have moments of difficulty on the market, increased contractual flexibility, resistance to deal with changes in work organization. In fact, the discrimination comes from all those clichés in which our culture imposes fears and insecurities that are consolidated over time. And worse perceptions of women in work: about one-fifth of workers report incidents of harassment or discrimination, in particular related to part-time and returning from maternity leave. To be designated as priority services are support still very deficient, such as child care, summer camps, conventions with care facilities. What
ask the Italian?
The election campaign is entering a phase of the voters and, disillusioned by time, show curiosity and interest in the unresolved issues, most notably the female security against male violence, since it was in Italy that killed, among 25 and 40 years, more than cancer and road accidents.
expectations of commitment and effective action to address this issue, Daniela Santanche, the only female candidate for prime minister, ranks 3rd place, slightly to surprise.
Women therefore need to organize better, to make the team, because for their exams never end.
For men it is always obvious enough, it is assumed that they are in Parliament because they have the capacity, we have to suffer because politics is male-empowerment slowly progressing especially in Italy.
I remind you that the theme of the 2007/2008 national FIDAPA (ITALIAN FEDERATION OF WOMEN AFFAIRS ARTS PROFESSIONS - ITALY BPW) of which it is Councillor IN SEARCH OF A LOST VALUE ... "respect" of the person and a woman of her dignity to emphasize the profound need for any our Italian members to direct our business in a cultural debate that deepens a topic of great ethical value that seems to have disappeared or forgotten in contemporary society.March 8 and then a symbol of the harassment but most of all a starting point for the redemption of the women who always add excitement and the heart and often put the profit into the background, giving priority to the implementation of a project or the more love and dedication to others.
