International Women's Day has become a significant date. Many demonstrations will be held on March the 8th around the world. Every day more people highlight the importance of this day. This is because we also want to celebrate this day with you.
On women's day, the importance of women in society is celebrated. It has been a long way to get to where we are today, although there is still a long way to go in terms of equality worldwide.
It is celebrated on March 8, a date chosen by the UN in 1975 as the official international day for women recognition and celebration. But until that date was settled, there were many events and particular struggles of women around the world that had to happen to progress.
The following infographic shows you some relevant facts that have happened in history and have been essential to making progress in women's rights.
Many people still don't recognize the role and importance of women in society. A strange attitude, considering that we are 50% of the world population. Even today, many people don't understand the meaning and importance of March 8, how should have been in the old times? Many women,act after act, and fight by fight, have struggled to achieve the recognition of many of the rights we have today.
These actions have allowed today women to do some things as basic as voting for their representatives in the government, asking for a divorce or even traveling! Can you imagine what you should have done to be part of the Panty.com community if you didn't have all these basic rights? Not so many years ago, it would have been inconceivable!
Women's Day not only represents the importance of women in society, but it is still a necessary appointment to show the struggle that still remains in the search for equality.
Panty.com is a site that allows women and men to freely express their sexuality in ways beyond the usual. Because we know that there are still many barriers to destroy, privacy has been and will always be paramount for us. We want women to feel free living their sexuality without being judged.
We support that women who decide to be open and speak openly about their sexuality can do so without fear of being judged. The fear of not understanding one's own desires and thoughts is what leads many people to judge others who are freer.
This fight has also been carried by one of the most representatives pop icons of today, Madonna. As she said in one of her speeches:
“If you are a girl you have to play the game, what is that game?
You are allowed to be pretty, cute and sexy but don’t act too smart, don’t have an opinion, don’t have an opinion that is out of line with the status quo at least. You are allowed to be objectified by men and dress like a but, don’t own your sluttiness and do not, I repeat, do not share your own sexual fantasies with the world.
Be what men what you to be, but more importantly be what women feel comfortable with you being around other men, and finally, do not age, because age is a sin. You will be criticized, you will be vilified...”.
Madonna expressed in this memorable speech when collecting a prize that women can be as free as they want, as far as you only enjoy the freedom that society imposes you. Isn't she right?
Yes, and if someone tells you the opposite, this person is just trying to coerce your freedom. Women's day is a claim and a fight for the many rights and liberties that still remain to be committed.
Claim this day as yours, and show the world that living your sexual life to the fullest without being judged, is one of the causes you fight for! Talking about women masturbation or sexual enjoyment are facts that still have to be fought for.
Free your panties!
