International Women’s Day wishes 2019: Status messages and cards

International Women’s Day wishes 2019: Status messages and cards”

Many female employees didn't show up to work Friday in offices and factories across Spain, while others halted domestic work or left caretaking of children, ill or elderly people to men to mark International Women's Day.

Several groups, including the March 8 Commission ― a network of feminist groups ― and two main labor unions, helped organize and promote the strike, along with some 500 street demonstrations around the country.

On 8 March a year ago, more than 5 million people across Spain took part in an unprecedented feminist strike to mark International Women's Day and demand gender equality, according to labour unions. It was in 1914 that the International Women's Day was celebrated in Germany and London on March 8, 1914. The Socialist Party of America designated the date after thousands of women marched for better working conditions and higher pay in New York City in 1908. "It is a class struggle that wants to support racialized women and transgender [people], women around the world, and to put an end to patriarchy and the precariousness of all class workers".

March 8, 2019 is International Women's Day. "We need to ensure that women cannot only be active in leadership positions, but in every profession".

The women - some wearing purple bags and clothes, and holding banners that read "Sister I do believe you" - met at midnight in Puerta del Sol square in the heart of the Spanish capital, in one of the first protests in Europe to commemorate the day and call for more gender equality.
