International Women's Day.

First of all, I would like to wish everyone in Rediffiland on the International Women"s day.

International women's day was first observed by working women around the world under the leadership of Clara Zetkin on 1910. This day represents the aspiration and struggle of women around the world to break free from the clutches of capitalism, Feudalism and all sorts of patriarchial exploitation and repression.
But it is a pity to see that nowadays this day has been hijacked by the bourgeois class.
They have totally commercialised this day. The decadent bourgeois culture, which protrays women as sex objects to be traded in the market place, is being propagated in almost all types of media.
Alcoholism and demonstration of naked and half naked bodies by women are being viewed as signs of progress. It is a pity to see that this great day and it's significance is being maligned by the ruling class in this way to corrupt the population.
It is the job of every modern, progressive person ( both men and women) to fight against these reactionary designs and re-establish International Women's Day in history with it's full glory.
