on March 8, in 1908, women workers in the needle trades marched through New York City's Lower East Side to protest child labor, sweatshop working conditions, and demand women's suffrage. Beginning in 1910, March 8 became annually observed as International Women's Day. Should we have a women's history day? Why isin't there a men's history day? the reason why there is a women's history day and not a men's day is because men didn't have to fight for their rights like women did. men already had the right to vote, they were able to have a paying job, able to have an education, and own a businesses. Women only gained the right to vote in the 1920s, and had equal emplyment in 1966. All because females hads to fight. some of the women who fought was Emmeline Pankhurs, Rosa Parks, Malala Yousafzai, and Obiageli Ezekwesili. Emmeline launched a campaign for women's sufferage, Rosa Parks is considered the mother of the civil rights movement by protesting against racially discriminitory laws, Malala is a female education activist for Pakistan, and finally Obiageli is an economic policy expert, an advocate for transparency, accountability, good governance and human capital development, a humanitarian and an activist. All in all, international women's day gives all of us a chance to celebrate women's accomplishments despite everything they fought against.
should there be a women's history month? why or why not?
