Women

The 8th of March is celebrated the International Day of Women.

In this day, in 1857, the textile female workers of a plant in New Iorque were on strike, having occupied the plant, to revindicate the reduction of a schedule of 16 hours per day for 10 hours. These workers who, in its 16 hours, received less than a third of a man's wage, were closed in the plant where, meanwhile, broke out a fire, and about 130 women died burnt. In 1910, in an women's international conference carried out in Denmark, it was determined, in homage to those women, to celebrate the 8th March as the "International Day of Women".

The subject of this month is Women.
