Various events were held in the Balkan countries on the occasion of March 8, International Women’s Day, and the streets were filled with flower sellers.
The squares in Sarajevo, the capital of Bosnia and Herzegovina, Belgrade, the capital of Serbia, and Skopje, the capital of North Macedonia, were decorated with pink balloons on the occasion of March 8.
And while about a thousand women from all over the country marched in solidarity among women in Sarajevo, Zagreb will host the “Night March”, which will be held for the seventh time this year.
advent of Women’s Day
Women working in harsh conditions in a textile factory in New York, USA 151 years ago started a strike. About 40,000 workers demanded better working conditions, a 10-hour workday, and equal pay for equal work. On the first day of the strike, March 8, 1857, a suspicious fire broke out in the factory events. The fire claimed the lives of 129 women.
At the initiative of the Socialist International, the day began to be known as “International Working Women’s Day” in Germany and Switzerland for the first time in 1911, and was accepted by the United Nations in 1975.
Celebrated under the leadership of the United Nations, this day has come to the fore as women enjoy equal rights with men and live their lives in better conditions.
