International Women's Day in Uzbekistan
The International Women's Day is commemorated by the UN as the day of women's cohesion in the fight for their rights.
To date the International Women's Day is solemnized at the state level in forty countries of the world (including Uzbekistan), mainly in the post-Soviet and some countries of Eastern European, Africa and Asia.
The International Women's Day in Central Asia was not abolished after the end of communism, but in some countries the holiday has changed a little.
In Uzbekistan, the International Women's Day is also a national holiday.
History of the 8th of March
The history of the holiday is associated with the German Communist Clara Zetkin. Being an activist for the struggle for women's rights in 1910 she proposed holding this day.
In most areas of the world, women were deprived of basic rights and freedoms. It was assumed that on this day, women around the world will organize marches and rallies, drawing public attention to their problems. A few years later, the Women's Day was celebrated every year on 8 March.
In 1913 in the Russian Empire, activists joined the European fighters for emancipation. In 1917, women's demonstrations furthered the overthrow of the monarchy.
Since 1921, March 8 has been commemorated the revolutionaries. After 45 years, the International Women's Day in the Soviet Union (including Uzbek SSR) became a day off. Later, the holiday lost its feminist color.
