International Women’s Day was observed on Friday, March 8th. You may not have realized it because there was no mention or celebration of it here at East. International Women’s Day is a day to celebrate achievements of women throughout history across nations. International Women’s Day is also a day to try the endeavor of spreading equality to certain areas that need more equality.
Women’s International day is a very important day that it is celebrated annually. East High School should celebrate International Women’s Day because there are numerous girls in the school and most of the staff are women. International Women’s Day should be a small assembly or a day that teachers teach students about a few women who changed the United States and Europe. For example Susan B. Anthony and Elizabeth Cady Stanton stuck together and fought for women to be able to vote. Harriet Tubman was an antislavery activist who helped slaves escape through the Underground Railroad and kept them safe. Tania Aebi was the first woman and the youngest person who sailed the world alone. These women changed the world because they haven’t given up and kept trying to achieve their goals. Their achievements accomplished were outstanding which it changed the world and gave some equality for some women or their ethnicity.
Clearly, East High School should have a small celebration of International Women’s Day because women gained positive achievements throughout our history.
