International Womens Day is a global celebration in more than 100 countries today, but many Americans may have only a vague awareness of the holiday. This might soon change, if grassroots organizers (including the group behind this Januarys Womens March on Washington) succeed in their efforts to convince women around the world to join in a day of action, including a labor strike, this March 8. As International Womens Day approaches, take a look back at its origins in the United States more than a century ago, and how far it has come since then.
Controversy clouds the history of International Womens Day. According to a common version of the holidays origins, it was established in 1907, to mark the 50th anniversary of a brutally repressed protest by New York Citys female garment and textile workers. But theres a problem with that story: Neither the 1857 protest nor the 50th anniversary tribute may have actually taken place. In fact, research that emerged in the 1980s suggested that origin myth was invented in the 1950s, as part of a Cold War-era effort to separate International Womens Day from its socialist roots.

Looks like sagging boobs.
Since when do we celebrate “international” holidays? These mf’ing globalists want to condition us for the realization of their one-world wet-dream.
Why would the “women’s movement” being linked to communists be surprising?
Thanks for the history lesson. All of these international days like this one, the workers Day on May 1st, etc., are Socialist piss off days - designed to do what they are doing- teach people to resist. The Women’s Marches the Student protests, etc. Are all part of the same plan, in my opinion. They are all well orchestrated and funded by the usual suspects.
Communism was said to be beaten but then again it’s socialist days are entrenched within our society and a great portion of women,”minorities” and Democrats are simply socialist and communist sympathizers.
