Why International women’s day celebration has become a byproduct of the Capitalism

While we can celebrate the day with increasing consumerism and fancy slogan gifts, we all must ask ourselves how we give women in our circle the power to stay vocal? What actions have we done to contribute to their success? How are we empowering women to be freed from the shackles of the capitalist patriarchal system that we built ourselves?

Not to forget, the castism, geographical biases for women coming from rural areas face much harsher situations.

To win the oppressing struggles at the root, we need to overturn the system’s existing order. The working class, the privileged, of course, can accelerate this, but not to exclude the rest. Every Person- women and men- need to acknowledge these issues and raise concerns to be a powerful force strong enough to bring down these ideologies.

Just like them, let us all work towards a more inclusive society where women have an EQUAL VOICE AND SAY in all aspects of life as Men.
