JAKARTA, – Hari Perempuan Internasional atau International Women’s Day (IWD) diperingati setiap 8 Maret. Hari Perempuan Internasional diawali pada tahun 1908.

Adanya penindasan pada kaum perempuan mendorong mereka untuk lebih vokal dalam menyuarakan perubahan. Ada sebanyak 15 ribu perempuan di New York City yang menuntut jam kerja yang lebih pendek, gaji yang lebih baik, dan hak suara.

Tahun 1910 saat Konferensi Wanita Buruh Internasional kedua diadakan di Kopenhagen, seorang wanita bernama Clara Zetkin yang merupakan Pemimpin Kantor Wanita untuk Partai Sosial Demokrat di Jerman, mengajukan gagasan mengenai Hari Perempuan Internasional. Saran Clara Zetkin disetujui.


Hari Perempuan Internasional pun dirayakan untuk pertama kalinya di Austria, Denmark, Jerman, dan Swiss, pada 1911.

Pada dasarnya Hari Perempuan Internasional mengkampanyekan hak perempuan untuk bekerja, memilih, dilatih, untuk memegang jabatan publik, dan mengakhiri diskriminasi. Tahun ini, IWD mengangkat tema #ChooseToChallenge.
