Why do we celebrate on 8th of March?
From a historical point of view, women have been a pasive role in a traditional society. Men was the core of the family and the supporter, while women take care of children, keep the house administration and they had to follow conventional moral rules as wives. In fact, it was supposed they couldn’t work and the only way was either mariage, being a nun or take care of their old fathers if they were single.
In comparison with men, they didn’t have the same liberty than men, because the social role were extremely rigid and defined for both sexs.
