International women’s day is celebrated every year on the 8th of March, Today’s theme for International women’s day is “Equality for women is progress for all”
The United Nations started celebrating women’s day annually since 8th March 1975, They celebrate it every year for women’s right globally. The main of this event is to empower women and to make self aware and to educated them about their rights. There are many developing nations today where women are still treated as mare cattle to produce children. They are unaware of their rights.
These women often face exploitation, rapes, harassment, sexual molestation, unemployment, slavery etc. The united nations have deployed their diplomats all over the world to keep a track of such activities so that women may stand up themselves…
Also International women’s day is celebrated to recognize women throughout time who have shown extraordinary courage to do extraordinary things, those who stood for themselves and for the welfare of the world…
5 MUST DO THINGS ON THIS WOMEN’S DAY
1. WATCH Queen Starring Kangana Ranaut – “Queen – The Movie” is about a middle class woman called Rani from Sarojini Nagar who belongs to a conservative family. She went on her honeymoon alone after her marriage got cancelled due to heartbreaking circumstances. Rani however did not give up on life instead she travelled to Amsterdam where she rediscovered life, friends and love and understood a part of her identity which was hidden all this time. She also realised that her marriage got cancelled only for a brighter future as her fiance never appreciated her freedom and self expression. Instead he would shun her down and ask her cover up all the times…
WATCH Gulab Gang starring Madhuri Dixit and Juhi Chawla – This movie is based on true life events.
The Gulabi Gang is an extraordinary women’s movement formed in 2006 by Sampat Pal Devi in the Banda District of Uttar Pradesh in Northern India. This region is one of the poorest districts in the country and is marked by a deeply patriarchal culture, rigid caste divisions, female illiteracy, domestic violence, child labour, child marriages and dowry demands. The women’s group is popularly known as Gulabi or ‘Pink’ Gang because the members wear bright pink saris and wield bamboo sticks. Sampat says, “We are not a gang in the usual sense of the term, we are a gang for justice.”
Both these movies are based on empowerment of women and their right to freedom.
