The World Is A Woman | Valentina Cirasola | Author and Designer

SuffragettesThere is an old Italian saying which goes: “Who says woman, says damage” and can’t help smiling about these phrases made up by the ignorant. Damage for whom or what?  This saying was coined when women were considered second class citizens and kept under submission. (Photo left found on: http://imgur.com/OAqUY)

For century women have been considered the weaker sex and yet they give birth enduring pain, give courage to people who have no strength; they fight wars, become prime ministers and astronauts; women can work even in a man’s field, have a family and make real choices.

But these rights weren’t always rights for women. In the early 1900’s, a time for the great industrialization in major parts of the world, women became more vocal and embraced active campaigns against oppression, inequality, better pay, less working hours, the right to be trained, the right to vote, to hold public offices and end all discriminations. In agreement with the Social Democratic Party of America women started the march toward a long fight for their rights to be followed by major European countries and their Social Democratic Parties.
The International Woman’sDay was declared as a result of those courageous women’ actions and March 8th was the date set to honored all the women who make this world go around and those women who are still battling for their rights.

Indeed, in the third millennium there are still women who are fighting for their rights and are still kept subjugated under antiquated and diminishing laws while atrocious crimes are committed to them.

On this day March 8th is a tradition to give a bunch of yellow mimosa flower to every woman we love, men give to women and women can give to other women too. It is a way to honor the force of nature called Woman! She is the mother and creator of this whole world.

Happy International Woman Day to everybody. Let’s work together to make sure our little girls will have a bright, equal, safe and rewarding future.
