International Women’s Day: 10 Books About Women’s Rights And Equality

original

International Women’s Day is sponsored worldwide by the United Nations. However, the UN did not originate this special celebration. The roots of this celebration goes back to the late 1800’s and early 1900s. It grew from women’s socialist movements and early women’s trade union groups.

The first International Women’s Day was held March 19, 1911. Women socialists and trade unions held an earlier Women’s Day on the last Sunday in February, 1908. The event grew from there, and has been celebrated annually since. The focus is upon women workers, and advancing women’s rights in  the workforce, politics and society.

Recently, our Kiwanis Club decided to do a service project with an assisted living facility here in Indianapolis.  We all got together during a meeting and made all the residents some Valentines and put together some fun Candy Gifts as well.

But in talking with the Activities Director there, we also found out that they could truly benefit from receiving book donations for the residents to read.

BOOKS!!!!????   We can do books!

So we put together a tub of books donated by the club members and took those with us as well!  They were truly excited!!
