Miles de personas en todo el mundo celebraron este 8 de marzo el Día Internacional de la Mujer, una instancia que las mujeres aprovechan para reclamar que se respeten sus derechos a nivel social y laboral.

Así, féminas de distintas latitudes protagonizaron multitudinarias marchas y también una serie de actividades con las que acapararon la atención de los medios.

Ahora, ¿Por qué se conmemora el Día Internacional de la Mujer? Esta fecha tiene que ver con una tragedia, la que ocurrió el 25 de marzo de 1911 en la fábrica Triangle Shirtwaist de Nueva York en donde murieron 140 empleados, en su mayoría eran mujeres.

Incendio en la fábrica de Nueva York. De las víctimas, 123 eran mujeres.

Días antes, el 19 de marzo, mujeres de cuatro países (Alemania, Austria, Dinamarca y Suiza) habían marchado para reclamar las pésimas condiciones laborales en las que desarrollaban sus labores. Todo, con una remuneración económica mínima.

Y no solo eso. También, reclamaban el derecho a voto, la posibilidad de ocupar cargos públicos, un trabajo digno, formación profesional y la no discriminación laboral.

De esta manera, el incendio de la fábrica textil en América terminó por ser “la gota que rebalsó el vaso”. La figura de las mujeres destacó con tal menosprecio frente a la de los hombres que féminas de todo el mundo instauraron el 19 de marzo como el Día de la Mujer. Desde entonces hasta la fecha, se celebra esta conmemoración.
