On February 28, 1909, the first-ever National Women’s Day was celebrated in a way to honor women in the garment industry and to protest against the poor working conditions. In 1975, the United Nations (UN) officially marked March 8 an official holiday to celebrate and recognize the significance of women’s rights and world peace. It has been a day to empower all who identify as a woman, as well as addressing the political, social and economic challenges that have been faced throughout history. It is truly amazing to realize that only for 74 years – the UN signing an international agreement in 1945 to affirm principle in equalizing men and women – helping to create a continuous legacy of “internationally-agreed strategies, standards, programmes and goals to advance the status of women worldwide” (UN, 2019).
And since, the progression of equality for all, and especially women, have and will continue to raise more questions and more strides in achieving that safe, powerful and equal world we all strive for in society.
At Fabio Scalia Salon, we strive to cultivate a workplace culture that celebrates diversity, equality, and respect. As a place of comfort and supporting the health and beauty of all our wonderful clients, our salons are happy to celebrate this important holiday. Please join us this Friday and Saturday for special treats and complimentary mimosa in both the Brooklyn Heights and Soho salons, and let us together feel the dynamic of such a holiday in honoring women in our city and around the world.
