How fought for 8 Martha

How fought for 8 Martha

With this issue of our newspaper, readers will probably become familiar later than usual. And they have a good reason - because on this Saturday, first of all, they will not get acquainted with the news, and congratulate your dear, beloved, who make our life more beautiful and kinder. After all, this is International Women's Day.

Perhaps now is not the time for the holidays, but still it is simply impossible to ignore such a date. And it’s not even the fact that it’s “so accepted”, but because women really deserve to have only pleasant surprises for them all day at least once a year. In addition, they had a long time to seek such a right and in general recognition of their equality.

Suffice it to say that as early as the middle of the 19th century, women were almost officially considered, if not “second-rate people,” then at least half of humanity, which has nothing to meddle in the affairs of men. At the same time in every way to exploit their conscience did not interfere. It is not surprising that for the first time as an organized force, it was the working women who most strongly felt the injustice of the way of life that had developed in the patriarchal society. According to one version, the first demonstration - the “march of empty pots” —was held on March 8 in New York on 1857 in New York, and textile workers and seamstresses took part in it, demanding better working conditions, a shorter working day and the same wages. as men. After all, then, we recall, the duration of the working day in light industry reached 16 hours ...

Whether this march took place on this day is not known for certain. It is likely that he had, since it was 8 in March of 1908 of the year (and this is already recorded quite clearly) in the same New York local social-democratic women's organization gathered a rally. Its participants demanded to give the fair sex equal rights (including electoral rights - yes, women were deprived of the right to vote in the “most democratic country” at the beginning of the 20th century), shorten the working day and set the same salary as men. The scale of the action is impressive - more than 15 thousands of women passed through the whole city.

The following year, the Socialist Party of America declared the last Sunday of February as the national women's day, and on 1910, after meeting representatives of the organization at the Second International Conference of Socialist Women in Copenhagen with the communist Clara Zetkin, this initiative was also supported in the Old World.

Already in 1911, International Women's Day was celebrated in Germany, Austria, Denmark and Switzerland, and through 2 of the year - also in France, Russia, the Czech Republic, Hungary, the Netherlands. True, in each country rallies and processions that attracted public attention to women's issues took place on different days, namely, March 8, this action took place in 1914 in Austria, Denmark, Germany, the Netherlands, Russia and Switzerland. And soon, partial success was achieved - until 1917, the right to vote (full or partial) was guaranteed to residents of Australia, Finland, Norway, Denmark, Iceland.

It is worth noting the fact that 8 March in a new style, when the February 1917 revolution of the year began, was one of the first to strike ... again, women textile workers from the Vyborg district of Petrograd. And they demanded not only bread, that is, the satisfaction of elementary human needs, but also ensuring equality - a social need of a higher level. So, in the literal sense of the word, the Russian workers wanted to be full of bread.

In memory of this event in 1921, after the victory of the socialist revolution, at the 2 Communist Women's Conference it was decided to celebrate the International Women's Day 8 in March. True, it became a holiday and non-working day only with the 1966 of the year, in accordance with the decree of the Presidium of the USSR Supreme Soviet. The political coloring of this date faded somewhat with time, which was primarily due to the fact that in the USSR women already achieved full equality in all spheres of life. But at the same time, they did not stop the struggle for it to triumph throughout the world, and their opinion was listened to by the UN: since 1975, she, in connection with the International Year of Women, began March 8 to celebrate International Women's Day. And now the tradition has become truly universal.

          I’m just Russian, and you are YARUSSKY ™, that’s the whole difference. You foshiki, as were buggers, so they remained. And it’s obviously not a hindrance to a Moscow like you.
          To reveal the topic of what "ryuzke foshyzdy" ® is, and what is the quality of the human material, a film from Yeltsin's childhood:

          Since then, nothing has changed much, except that such devils have become more, thanks to the exam.

          PS Especially deliver the last 30 seconds of the film. The topic of collaboration and dash is a bit open.

    Suffice it to say that back in the middle of the XNUMXth century, women were almost officially considered, if not “second-class people,” then at least half of humanity, which has nothing to meddle in the affairs of men. At the same time, their conscience did not interfere in every possible way.

    In NYC? In America? It is possible, but where does Christian Russia (and not only) live by church commandments. Since pagan times, it is customary to treat women with respect and reverence. As the keeper of the hearth and the continuer of the clan.
    "INTERNATIONAL HOLIDAY" which has never been planted like this, except in the revolutionary Russia, after the Jewish coup, and nowhere more widely celebrated.

    Really too lazy to type in the search bar.
    "What are we celebrating on March 8" and analyze some facts. For example / does not necessarily apply to Christians / -

    http: // page = book & id = 579

    I will express my opinion with this quote -
    And the reason for my hostility towards March 8 is much more prosaic: I simply could not stand March 8 from childhood. And having become a church person, I fell in love Orthodox "Women's Day" - "Myrrh-Bearing Wives Week"celebrated on the third Sunday after Easter. So I did not write this article so that someone would feel worse about Klara Zetkin and her people, but in order to respect for Orthodox traditions returned. For the sake of having a holiday in our Russian house as well.

    Your beloved and close women with SPRING I will congratulate March 22, and with HOLIDAY 4 May

        New Year according to the Old Slavonic calendar

        Including ... Spring Equinox Day. New Year. In later times, postponed to September 22.Древнеславянский_календарь

        This date was proposed by me for "Rodnovers", "new-pagans" and adherents of Slavism. For the rest, incl. Muslims - "Navruz".
        I also like some others, for example "UN, World Water Day"... You are invited to choose according to your "taste". -марта

        (note, not a word about the Jews that they apparently do not like much ...)

        And May 4, this year falls on the mentioned holiday - "Day of Myrrh-Bearing Wives". This is for the Orthodox.
        Therefore, everyone who classifies themselves as either ardent communist internationalists, or militant atheists, or some other agnostics, can "celebrate" and March 8th. At the same time they will be involved in the "joys" of the Jews .... what hi

    There are only 365 days in a year, in any situation on any day there are dozens, or even hundreds of memorable or significant dates. So, it is not surprising that February 23 and March 8 coincide with some ancient Jewish holidays. More importantly, what meaning do we put into our actions and if I congratulate my women on the 8th of March on a holiday, then I congratulate them, and do not remember some Esther.

    So with the holiday you dear women, it is with your holiday. Love you and health love

    AND THIS IS THE MAIN POINT!!! And the fact that you sometimes suffer through our fault, from our despotism, chauvinism and ... sexism (what kind of word) I ask you to accept our sincere apologies ... Happy holiday to you!
    Sexism (English sexism, from Latin sexus - gender) - ideology and practice of discrimination against people on the basis of sex
