So solidarity is shown by women worldwide

To the International Women's Day (8 March) women worldwide take to the streets to fight for their rights. The World Women's Day has been held for more than 100 years: in 1911, the German socialist Clara Zetkin demanded the right to vote for women.

The United Nations has organized the Women's Day 2016 under the motto "Planet 50-50 by 2030: Step It Up for Gender Equality". They focus on the unequal pay of women. In Germany, the motto is: "Set a signal for tomorrow today!" Again, it is about the labor market, especially the situation of women working part-time.

The British NGO "Women for Refugee Women" sets a solidarity sign for refugee women: 99 prominent women from politics, culture and the economy participate in the campaign #setherfree ("Let them go"). They post a picture with a personal message. They also want to draw attention to the pregnant women in refugee camps.

The number 99 is no coincidence: 99 pregnant women lived in Yarl's Wood, a sheltered refugee camp in Bedfordshire, in 2014 - until she decides on her asylum application: "The campaign is meant to commemorate the possibility of a world in women's rights are not curtailed by class, nationality or citizenship, "say the creators.
