How did it come into existence?
International Women’s Day (IWD) has been observed since the early 1900’s – a time of great expansion and turbulence in the industrialized world that saw booming population growth and the rise of radical ideologies. International Women’s Day is a collective day of global celebration and a call for gender parity. No one government, NGO, charity, corporation, academic institution, women’s network or media hub is solely responsible for International Women’s Day. Many organizations declare an annual IWD theme that supports their specific agenda or cause, and some of these are adopted more widely with relevance than others.
Logo & Color
“Men are from Mars and women are from Venus”. So the logo has to contain the Venus in it.
Internationally, purple is a color for symbolizing women. Historically the combination of purple, green and white to symbolize women’s equality originated from the Women’s Social and Political Union in the UK in 1908. Purple signifies justice and dignity. Green symbolizes hope. White represents purity but is no longer used due to ‘purity’ being a controversial concept. The introduction of the color yellow representing a ‘new dawn’ is commonly used to signify the second wave of feminism. Thus purple with green represents traditional feminism, purple with yellow represents progressive contemporary feminism.
More than a century later, the awareness has spread across the world. Today, it is celebrated with enthusiasm and zeal all over the world.
Well, the world sure is a colorful and better place to be in with females. With the current trends, you might think that why do I need a day to celebrate, every day is mine. However, a century ago it was a totally different scenario. So this day is a mark towards the efforts taken by people for these reforms to come about.
