Women in many countries demand equal rights

March 8 is International Women’s Day. It is a special day in many countries. In Europe, it was celebrated for the first time in 1911. Women initially demanded above all that they should also be allowed to vote. Since then, on March 8, women around the world have been demonstrating for equal rights—for example, equal pay at work—and against discrimination. In some countries, women are given flowers as a sign of appreciation on this day—in Germany, mostly red roses or carnations. Women’s Day is a public holiday in 26 countries around the world, but in Germany only in the states of Berlin and Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania. In some countries, International Women’s Day has no significance. Instead, people in Syria and other Arab countries celebrate March 21 in a big way as Mother’s Day.
