Now in Montenegro, as in many other countries of the world, International Women's Day is celebrated on March 8!

In 1910 in Copenhagen, during the Second International Conference of Socialists, on the initiative of Klara Zetkin, it was decided to make the day of March 8 an International Women's Day. This decision was made in memory of the great protests of American women, held in 1909 as part of the struggle for equality between men and women and the universal right to vote, regardless of gender.

Long before that, women fought for their rights with the help of various strikes and uprisings in search of a better position in society. Despite the fact that many ruling leaders and regimes prevented women from fighting for their rights, in most countries women advocated universal suffrage, the same salary as men’s, the same property management, the right to divorce and abortion. However, at present, even in the most developed countries, many women's rights are not yet enshrined in law.

It is worth noting that the United Nations (UN) made the greatest contribution to defending the rights of women, as well as the active participation of women in political and other spheres of society.
