symbol for woman

Before we had Women’s History Month, there was “International Woman's Day," first proposed by the German socialist and feminist leader Clara Zetkin.  It was first celebrated in the United States, on February 23, 1909, when socialist working women made it a holiday. “Their goal, according to their slogan, was to win bread and roses: As labor activists, they wanted to improve the conditions under which women worked; as women, they wanted respect.” (Rosen, p.10)
