Dear sisters and Friends,,

For All Pakistan Trade Union Federation March 8th is an important day to forge stronger links and unity between all those struggling for the liberation of women and resisting against gender inequality around the world. It is a day with a proud history for the women’s movement – a history of internationalism, unity, solidarity and struggle.
March 8th remember us the struggle of women workers starts on 1857 for the betterment of working condition. At that time police brutally baton women workers to stop their voice, due to this brutally attacked by police several women workers sacrifice their life.
It was at the 1910 on the event of International Conference in Copenhagen that German Socialist leader Clara Zetkin first raised the idea of organizing an International Working Women’s Day to mark the important victories of women workers in the United States and to provide a focus for women around the world to organize public actions to win the right to vote.
Friends, Pakistani women are also victims of violence, terrorism, gender discrimination, inequality, elimination of basic human rights. Despite the constant oppression against women, we all women’s are fighting back.
To extend our deep solidarity with all sisters and friends struggling worldwide to end oppression and exploitation against women. We wish you get success and achievements in your struggle, which is ours struggle.
