The tradition of celebrating the 8th of March is related to the "empty boiler mars", which was held in New York in 1857 by workers in sewing factories. Their main requirements were: reduction of working days, equal conditions of remuneration with men and voting rights.
1975 was announced as Women's International Year by UN and March 8 - International Day of Women Solidarity.
Fund "Sukhumi" held a action on Women's Solidarity Day. The information on the banners confirms that women's rights are violated and many things should be done by the state and society.
The project is implemented with the support of the organization Brot
für die Welt – Evangelischer Entwicklunsdienst (Germany)
