March 8 – International Women’s Day celebrated at the Institute of Mathematics and Mechanics

March 8 is International Women’s Day the trade union committee of the Institute of Mathematics and Mechanics of ANAS congratulated the female employees of the Institute. The event was held on March 6, 2020. The event was attended by Azad Shukurov, a prominent Azerbaijani theater actor, associate professor of the Department of Stage Speech at the University of Culture and Art (2002). Opening the event, Director of the Institute of Mathematics and Mechanics Correspondent Member of ANAS Professor Misir Mardanov congratulated the Institute’s women staff on the International Women’s Day on March 8, and noted that “A German socialist named Clara Setkin, in America, symbolizes the struggle, women’s rights, and women’s solidarity that began in New York on March 8, 1857, at the Congress of Women’s Socialist International in Copenhagen, Denmark 52 years after the events of 1857. 129 women who were killed on March 8 in commemoration of the workers offered to commemorate World Women’s Day on March 8, and the proposal was accepted. In 1914, International Women’s Day was celebrated in Russia on March 8, probably because it was a Sunday, and thus March 8 is always celebrated in all countries. In 1914, that day’s ceremony was dedicated to the suffrage that women could not win until 1918. On March 8, 1914, a protest marched in London towards Boudan Trafalgar Square in support of women’s suffrage. March 8 remains a holiday in the Soviet Union, but is still celebrated in Azerbaijan. It is precisely that mass education of women and the certain rights that existed at that time. Perhaps this is because, unlike other socialist holidays, March 8 has not been erased from the calendar of the former Soviet republics that have already gained independence.

In 1998, the State Committee on Women’s Issues was established in Azerbaijan. Azerbaijan is also represented in the Council of Europe’s women’s bureau and is a full member of the UN Commission on Women. In 1995, Azerbaijan formally joined the International Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination Against Women.

Every year, on the eve of the holiday, the head of state greets Azerbaijani women on the occasion of the International Women’s Day – March 8, giving honorary titles to a group of Azerbaijani women, and a number of others – with orders or medals”. Azad Shukurov was given a floor, Honored Artist of the Republic of Azerbaijan. Azad Shukurov congratulated the ladies of the Institute of Mathematics and Mechanics with his poems. At the end, the chairman of the Trade Union of the Institute of Mathematics and Mechanics Irada Mirzazadeh expressed gratitude to Azad Shukurov.
