International women’s Day

Hello there,

Today videographysf team is planning to talk something about international women’s day.

International Women’s Day (March 8) is a global day celebrating the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women. The day also marks a call to action for accelerating gender parity.

International Women’s Day (IWD) has been observed since in 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.

Role of women in society

The role of women in society has been greatly overseen in the last few decades but now are coming to a more perspective to people. In the early days women were seen as wives who were intended to cook, clean, and take care of the kids. They were not allowed to vote while men took care of having jobs and paying any bills that had to be paid.
Soon enough it caught on that women should have a bigger role than what other people thought women should have. Women would have strikes and go on marches to prove that they should have rights just like everyone else. They faced discrimination like and other race that faced it. Women would voice their opinion in any way possible so that they could reach their goal and they did.

Women’s march

Women are important in our society. Every woman has her own job or duty in this
modern society in which men are unfortunately still the ‘strongest gender’;. We can´t forget that a woman´s life is a lot more complicated than a man´s life. A woman has to take care of her own personal life and if she is a mother , she has to take care also of her children´s life too. Worse still, if she is married, additional stress can be on her shoulders. Yet they will still perform very well in the work environment in some cases better than their male counterparts.

The many silly commentaries I have heard against women occupying certain roles in the workplace are therefore bovine nonsense. In my life the most
important woman I remember is my darling mother. She was determined and even in her old age she was able to manage a busy school, actively participate in the Church committees and still find time to see her grand children. I have heard silly comments that women are not as strong as men and therefore certain engineering work they should not do. Wait a minute, can a man do everything that a woman does? Gender roles are based on norms, or standards, created by society. In the United States, masculine roles are usually associated with strength, aggression, and dominance, while feminine roles are usually associated with passivity, nurturing, and subordination. What then are leadership and managerial roles based on? I have been privileged to work with women all my life either as the manager or the managed. In both situations, I have found women to be a marvel to work with as they are usually a lot more critical on matters that require a much more robust approach and often produce results within time allocated.
