International Women's Day is a day of appreciation and respect for women. Since 1917, every year on 8 March, women around the world have celebrated this day. Men treat women to flowers, sweets and cosmetics. International Women's Day is also a UN World Day. It has not always been a flowery, sweet commemoration, as its origins date back to 1857 in New York.

History

On 8 March this year, a demonstration for women's equality and free employment took place. Today, various NGOs around the world also mark this day to protest against violence against women, domestic violence, sexual harassment in the workplace, prostitution and other forms of violence against women. As the international labour movement developed, the issue of women's emancipation came to the fore: in 1866, a resolution was passed on the professional employment of women. This resolution was intended to put an end to the age-old stereotype that women's place was exclusively in the home. In 1909, the first National Women's Day was celebrated in the United States, on the last Sunday in February, the 28th. In 1910, it was decided to hold an international women's day to promote women's suffrage. The resolution was adopted by Congress, but no decision was taken on the exact date of the commemoration. On 19 March 1911, Austria, Denmark, Germany and Switzerland were the first countries in the world to celebrate International Women's Day. On 8 March 1917, women in Russia demonstrated for bread and peace. Four days later, not directly as a result of this demonstration, Tsar Nicholas II abdicated and a civil government was formed, giving women the vote. This also set the date for Women's Day, which in most countries of the world is 8 March.

Women's Day in Hungary

Hungary first joined the Women's Day call in 1913, when the National Women's Organising Committee distributed leaflets. The following year, in 1914, events were organised throughout the country. During the Rákosi era, the celebration of Women's Day became compulsory, and from 1948 onwards, originally held on different dates, it was held on 8 March, following the Soviet model. After the fall of communism, Women's Day in Hungary lost its original labour movement atmosphere and was replaced by the giving of flowers.
