The International Women´s Day vs The Charter of United Nations 1945

“International Women´s Day is celebrated in many countries around the world. It is a daywhen woman are recognized for their achievements without regards to divisions, whether national, ethnic, linguistic, cultural, economic or political.

International Women´s Day first emerged from activities of labour movements at the turn of the twentieth century in North America and across the Europe.

Since those early years, International Women´s Day has assumed a new global dimension for women in developed and developing countries alike.

The growing International Women’s movement which has been strengthened by for global United Nations women’s conferences has helped make the commemoration a rallying point to build support for women’s rights and participation in the political and economy arenas”.

“The charter of the United Nations, signed in 1945 was the first international agreement to affirm the principle of equality between women and men. Since then the UN has helped create a historic legacy of international-agreed strategies, standard, programmes and goals to advance the status of women worldwide.

Over the years, the UN and its technical agencies have promoted the participation of women as equal partners with men in achieving sustainable development, peace, security, and full respect for human rights. The empowerment of women continues to be a central feature of the UN’s efforts to address social, economic and political challenges across the globe”.
