The holiday itself organized in ancient Rome were people celebrated Matronalia –a tribute to fertility and maternity – during the first week of March. The 8th of March8th  first featured in our modern calendar as  Women’s Day in 1911 to commemorate  15,000 female workers from the textile factory in New York, who had gone on strike for better work conditions and voting rights three years before. The  factory’s owner, seeking to avoid a scandal, imprisoned them in the factory where a fire later broke out, killing 129 of them tragically.
