Initially there was no such thing as women's rights struggle because it has been a matriarchal society since the beginning of the social structure. Due to the changes in the land-based politics over time, women were considered only for inheritance and family formation. Thus the women community was left behind to a great extent. This century-old women's day has a great history behind it.
In the early 18th century, women from various parts of the world began to immigrate to New York City to work. Most of them were engaged in sewing. Even the needle, thread, and chair used by them were taxed. There was also the problem of hourly work and low wages. At a time when industrial struggle was largely dominated by men, women began to fight for their rights themselves. For the first time, women in the garment industry began to struggle. Following this, the protest began to spread to other places. After this, the Working Women's Association was formed. In 1908, 15,000 people protested in New York City for basic demands such as shorter working hours, better wages, and the right to vote. Inspired by that struggle, middle and upper class women also joined this struggle. In 1917, when the First World War was going on in Russia, women protested on March 8, saying that there was no need for war, only peace and food. This 4-day struggle brought an end to Tsarist rule in Russia. Bharatiyar would have described this event as wonderful, "Jar Mannan Velnthan Aha Vanthathu Par Ugapuratchi" and the revolution also gave women the right to vote. The credit goes to female activist Clara Zetkin for taking this struggle to the next level. A communist in essence, she proposed Women's Day at the International Conference of Working Women. 100 women from 17 countries channeled Clara. After that it was in the year 1975 that March 8 was declared as International Women's Day. UN General Assembly. Each women's day presents a slogan. Celebrated for over 100 years, Women's Day aims to celebrate women's progress in social, economic and political fields. In this way, the motto of the First Women's Day is to think of unity, build intellectually, and think innovatively for change.

The price of flowers is doubled for those three days. China has announced a half-day holiday to celebrate Women's Day.

There are 25 women in 238 seats in the Rajya Sabha and 19 women in 234 seats in the Legislative Assembly of Tamil Nadu. It is the opposite view of all women that women should be treated equally in all fields. There has been a lot of women's uprising in India since before independence. For example, Rani Lakshmi Bai of Jhansi in India and Velu Nachi in Tamil Nachi have worked very hard for the freedom struggle. Indians will not easily forget Velunachiyar's heroic revenge against the white men who killed her husband.
