On March 8 every year, we celebrate the International Women’s Day (IWD), originally called International Working Women’s Day. Then, IWD started as a Socialist political event, above all in Russia and the rest of Europe.

In America, the earliest Women’s Day observances were held on different cities: May 3, 1908, in Chicago; February 28th, 1909, in New York; and February 27, 1910, in New York again.

Events ranges from general celebration of respect and love towards women, similar to Mother’s Day, to a celebration for women economic, political, and social achievements. In this last case, political and human rights designated by the United Nations runs strong, because many accomplishment have been achieved but still are many for achieving, especially in underdeveloped countries. Major: access to education, respect for female sexuality, right to participate actively in social life, the right to be able to lead their own lives without being under the tutelage of a man, and equal pay and opportunities.

2014 International Women’s Day is focus on “Equality for Women is Progress for All.”

In general, this is a day which some people celebrate by wearing purple ribbons, what is a good and traditional symbol. But we need new symbols or the event could finish being dull and repetitive. The Google Doodle on the eve of IWD 2014 presents a doodle video with music by Zap Mama. Different women from different countries and cultures congratulate you and honor the day. We think is a great idea and a perfect symbol for 2014 Women’s Day.

Because women want to be together, and we do not care about the differences of language or culture. We want our children to grow up in peace and our parents enjoy a peaceful retirement. We care for families, the natural environment and we have preserved cultural traditions.

We have worked in the field, and suffered the Industrial Revolution. We have planted gardens in our towns and painted the walls of their houses. We have waited for our husbands to return from sea and gone with them to the New World and to the Pacific Ocean. We wept wars and intervened in favor of peace.

In short, we have done the same as men of good heart and we want to build with them a better world.

Happy Women’s Day!

Congratulations Google for your initiative!
