The women day all over the world is celebrated at different dates. God has created women and he has given her some status in every society. Women day is celebrated all over the world but women are unable to get their rights.

On 8th March 1907 women in garment Industry asked for equal wages like men .They worked for more than 10 hours and they stroked.  The government used its force to stop them. The women were beat brutally by the police officers. In 1908 the women working at a needle industry stop working in that industry because the owners get work done from children and they force the women to work for more than 10 hours. At that time the police also used force to stop them.

In 1908, an American socialist party developed women National commission to resolve to issues and problems of women. They decided to celebrate women day in the last week of February and eventually they have decided to celebrate women day in the last Sunday of February. From 1910 to 1917 different countries celebrate women day at different dates.

In Australia, Denmark, Germany and Switzerland this day was first celebrated in 1917 and now this is celebrated on 19th March every year. In South Asia the condition of women is more miserable. In Bangladesh 42%, India 32% and in Sri lanka 36% women worked with and more than men. According to Asia watch 70% of the working women are suffering with brutality from their management. They need their rights and they need better food, water and shelter other than celebrating Women’s Day.
