March for Women

Throughout most of history women generally have had fewer career opportunities and legal rights than men. Motherhood and Wife-hood were regarded as women's only significant professions. In the 20th century, however, women in most nations won the right to vote and increased their rights to education and equal job opportunities. Perhaps most important, they fought for and to a large degree accomplished a pivotal event of traditional views of their role in the society.

Women's right around the world is an important indicator that there should be an understanding to global well-being. Gender equality effectively secures the child's strong survival and development for all of the society, so the importance of women's rights and gender equality should not be underestimated. The society must acknowledge that women must have the proper education, a full access to better health care services, and family planning.

March is Women's History Month. This is when women are being recognized and celebrated the diverse and historic accomplishments of women by providing educational materials, information, and special programs. March 8, now commonly known as International Women's Day or March for Women to some, actually has its origins in the militant actions of working class women, particularly in Europe and the United States in the 1800's, where the period of great social disturbance brought about by the industrial revolution. Women's contribution and influence in the key decisions that shape their lives and those of children must be enhanced in three distinct arenas: political sphere, the workplace and, the household. Every March, there are events and ceremonies honoring the contribution of women in our history. In some communities, community leaders come up with a health programs to teach women on how to take care of themselves. The right to contraception and legalized abortion to some areas, have given women greater control over the number of children they want to bear. This move, created a major change in how the society perceived women in general.

In the 1970s, it became popular by many women that "history" as taught in school was incomplete because no woman was ever mentioned to contributing anything significantly. In the United States, calls for inclusion of the Native Americans and Black Americans helped some women realize that women were invisible in most history courses. That leads to a big change when in the 1970s many universities and colleges began to include the fields of women's history and the vast field of women's studies. Amazingly, when they were allowed personal and intellectual freedom, women made significant achievements, but it was never a big surprise to many because women have always been the meticulous sex. From then on, there have been many institutions honoring women about their contribution from their community and the society. The government has passed a law that stretches a woman's right not only to make a home but be a part of the society that she belongs to.

The purpose of having a March for Women is to help increase the knowledge and consciousness of women's history. This is to take one month of the year to remember the contributions of ordinary women and many notable ones, in hopes that the day will soon come when it's impossible to teach or learn history without remembering a female's contributions.
