Celebrating Women’s Day
Nineteenth century marked the onset of International Women’s Day on 8th of March which was celebrated for the first time by the United Nations in 1975 to commemorate the social, cultural and political achievement of women and to bring about gender parity. Today we are in the 21st century and yet the markers of the movement remain underachieved globally.
Likewise, India has also witnessed a noteworthy change and attitudinal shift in both women’s and society’s thoughts about gender equality. However, amidst the modernity there are certain troubles that are still prevalent and being faced by women. A woman is central in her family and plays a significant role. Women of today are managing both family and workplace responsibilities which becomes difficult and stressful. Besides this, difficulties such as income disparity, eve teasing, harassment at workplace, domestic violence, lack of decision making powers are also experienced by them. Though conflicts, difficulties and problems are a part of every individual’s life but women tend to suffer more than men and the care and attention they get in return is less than expected. These life stressors take a toll on their physical and mental health leading to higher rates of anxiety and depression in women as compared to men, as researched by WHO. It is important to provide women with good facilities for improving their health for the benefit of functioning of healthy societies. Research has also shown that the societies where women are educated and empowered have greater economic growth, so providing positive, supportive and caring environment to them is good for the growth of better social systems.
For a progressive nation it is important for today’s women to be nurtured, educated about her rights and be fearless to voice her opinions. When women are empowered, it leads to a change in their perspective and behavior, which enhances their self esteem, self efficacy and improves problem solving and decision making skills and they provide better child rearing for next generation. The least we can do is give women a platform they deserve by being more supportive to utilize her potential, which in the longer run, will benefit the society as a whole.
On this Women’s day, we at Mindfirst would like to honor every Woman and salute her for her contribution in shaping the society.
