International Women's Day
The very first historical event that had come to this day, and women associated with the attempt to assert their rights, was a protest march in New York textile workers March 8, 1857. Occasion, alas, quite banal: low wages and poor working conditions. The second time, half a century later, this date remembered activist New York Social-Democratic organization, collected the March 8, 1908 rally in support of women's rights. In 1909, the Socialist Party of America declared National Women's Day last Sunday of February.
