March 8th 1911: International Women’s Day launched
this day in 1911, International Women’s Day was launched in
Copenhagen by Clara Zetkin. Zetkin, a German socialist activist, led
the Women’s Office of the Social Democratic Party. The official
commemoration of the day began in an attempt to draw attention to the
struggle for female suffrage and women’s rights. Activists from 17
demonstrations and protests for March 8th in order to have more
far-reaching impact and to emphasise the need for women’s liberation.
Initially only celebrated in Europe, International Women’s Day soon
a global phenomenon, spreading to Russia, Australia and the United
States. Ever since 1975, the event has been celebrated by the United
Nations, and in 1996 the organisation began to establish official themes
International Women’s Day; this year’s theme is ‘Planet 50-50 by 2030′.
This day is a moment to celebrate the achievements of the feminist
movement, but also to acknowledge the considerable barriers which
continue to hold women back, including lack of representation in
politics and business, pay inequality, and systemic misogyny. Today’s Google Doodle is a video honouring International Women’s Day, featuring the voices of women from around the world.
Without help from the men – even against the will of the men – the women rallied under the socialist banner. Under this banner they will struggle for their emancipation, for recognition of their rights as equal human beings. Just as the worker is subjugated by the capitalist, so woman is subjugated by man. And she will remain subjugated as long as she is not economically independent. The essence of the traditional bourgeois family is that the husband is supposed to be the provider and thus the boss of the family. The wife is his private servant in the family and his subordinate. But as a result of the transformation of the relations of production, woman is now economically independent, so both spouses now face each other as equals. This equality is the basis of the new ethical relation of man and woman in the family. The great struggle in which vast masses of people are challenging vast financial interests requires that men and women together dedicate all of their strength and moral power to this struggle. Only together with women – not by excluding them, and certainly not against them – can the working people win this struggle!
Alright, I’ve never understood why, or even how people can say, “I HATE [insert corps name here]” like, I understand rivalries (kinda) and I can understand hating a show, or a piece of music, *cough, cough* BD 2013 *cough* but how can you hate a whole corps? How can you hate on people doing what they love, with people they call family? Especially when the hate is coming from people in corps or vets. of corps, YOU KNOW WHAT THAT IS LIKE, YOU KNOW HOW MUCH WORK THAT TAKES, EVEN THE CORPS THAT AREN’T WINNING CHAMPIONSHIPS WORK AS HARD AS POSSIBLE BECAUSE THATS THEIR PASSION, how can you hate on that? How? So what if their show isn’t what you like, they worked super hard on this show in the blazing hot sun like you did, and they are out there doing what they love, performing their hearts out. So maybe I don’t understand, but I just don’t believe there is any reason to hate a corps, ever.
Thanks to all women: To those who go beyond society’s prejudice of race or gender. To those who fight for their dreams and know how to pick themselves up when beaten down. To those who work tirelessly and are even willing to die not to compromise their ideals. To those who know how to make difficult choices and can still love even after being let down. And thanks to DW for giving us those women; may they be role-models for a better world for us all.
