The first is the American Socialist Party introduced a National Women's Day (1909) and it turned out somehow that he was a woman marked the last week of February. Then in Copenhagen was Congress of the Socialist International (1910), so once again agreed to the glory of the movement for women's rights, and above all, the movement for women's suffrage, introduce female holiday. The first years after Copenhagen, female Day is marked on March 19 rallies in Austria, Denmark, Germany and Switzerland; participated more than a million people and there are celebrated Clara Zetkin, a German social democrat. A week later (25 March) in New York there was a fire which burned 140 girls, factory workers, mostly immigrants. This tragedy has strengthened women's movement that every year celebrates its day - day of women's solidarity.

For this she and revolutionary Russia. There is a women's movement grew out of the peace, in the dawn of World War II. Russian women have decided to celebrate Women's Day last week of February. Later, in 1917, show the famous Alexandra Kollontai, a Russian revolutionary, who was elected last Saturday in February to lead the strike for "helb and peace", opposing the decision of the political leaders to strike starts. four days later, the emperor abdicated, and the temporary government guaranteed women the right to vote. It was on February 23, according to the Julian calendar, ie. on 8 March in the Gregorian of calculation time.

8th March in Serbia

In Serbia, the eighth of March fell in zabarav, although in our lives symbolized women's rights and the role played semi-holidays: half-time it was, a half game, most often by companies, almost never at home. Paradoxically, the time in which the celebrated former Eighth of March is more of a Mother's Day which is celebrated in the capitalist countries, but the socialist holiday women (Revolucion) struggle for equality.

Little by little, this holiday turned into a day of men's gratitude to women-mothers, these indisputable martyr, which are "at least one day spare deserve". So anyway and fingers. The men were allowed to kiss friends at work, to give them more squealed carnations, proud of themselves as they remembered CVEĆARNICA, while the wives (and mistresses) ćašćavane perfume or dinner. Modilistički and treacherous elements went so far as to this, her day, and wash the dishes.

With wars disappeared and the somewhat disheveled eighth of March. He disappeared the day raskopčanih coat and occasional male chivalry, full of restaurants, fresh natapiranih women, union sending "his wife" in resorts or shopping tours, but also those of officially organized friend and paper that said, the results of women's equality. A result was really, although that part of the Festive day was not as important as the friendly and tavern. Between the paper and pevancije after work, Institutes, is not thought that there is something missing: self-organized struggle of women for gender equality out of allowable "organizational forms". But it is already beginning to happen in those dilapidated eighties.

Main stream in Serbia today does not care for the Women's Day. The state gave up the holiday. The reason is easy to guess. Much of what is important for women was declared the "old days". Thus, the "Commie Deeds" classified and 8 March.

So in some sense, not really wrong, the woman question was thrown into the treacherous basket with modijalistima, peacekeepers, civil options, and their paths opponents Serbianism. Do not strengthen women's organizations and at the forefront of the peace movement, perhaps the Serbian state has already reached Cathay.

Vesna Pesic


The new millennium is fundamentally changed attitude towards equality and emancipation both from the standpoint of women, and also society. Many young generation feels that women have won in this fight, while many femisita 1970'tih thinks longevity and complexity of patriarchy still present. With more women in the institutions, greater equality in the laws governing rights in general and massive emergence of women in various aspects of life, many would say that the women fought for full equality. Unfortunately, women still are not present in equal numbers in business and politics, and global education, health and violence against them is still very strong.

In recent years the situation has significantly improved. We have women astronauts, Minister, colleagues are welcome at universities, women have the right to work, the family and the right to choose. And so the World Women's Day holiday from one struggle for equality turned into a reminder of the negative things celebrating positive.


Although the "modern world" this is a completely isprostituisan holiday, for some people it still preserves its essential meaning - gender equality and equity based on universal human rights.

Therefore, make a difference, think globally and act locally! Make each day of the World Women's Day. Make it a little bit, give women the knowledge that the future for them buckets, equally safe and rewarding.

For all women out there, our flowerstore wishes you a happy 8.Mart!
