March the 8th is women’s day. On this date we remember the social and political struggles that women had to face in order to obtain the same rights as men. This feast is often linked to two historical events. The first one dates back to 1911: in a textile industry, a working group in New York, protested against the terrible conditions in which they worked. As a response, the owners of the company blocked the exits of the factory and prevented the workers from going out. The second historic event demonstrated the commitment of women for their rights and freedom and it is linked to the February revolution in Russia during the first world war, on the 8th March 1917.
