India is celebrating National Women’s Day in 2023, in order to mark the birth anniversary of Sarojini Naidu, also referred to as the nightingale of India.
Every year on February 13, the nation celebrates her accomplishments as a remarkable leader whose potential extends beyond the Indian political establishment. The National Women’s Day honours Sarojini Naidu’s immeasurable commitment to advancing women’s rights in the traditionally patriarchal Indian society.
It acknowledges the cultural, political, and economic achievements of Indian women. The day celebrates the accomplishments of women and promotes gender equality through a variety of activities planned across the nation.
The occasion of Sarojini Naidu’s birth anniversary honours the grandeur of her outsized personality, which contributed to her immediate involvement in the Indian freedom movement and post-Independence political leadership. The National Women’s Day celebrations in 2023 will work to make Sarojini Naidu a “role model” for women who want to lead the country and make a difference in their communities.
Aside from politics, Sarojini Naidu is regarded as one of the greatest poetesses in Indian literature history. Her poetry included a wide range of subjects, such as patriotism, tragedy, romance, etc. She was the first woman to serve as party president of the Indian National Congress in 1925. Naidu was a necessary cog in the Mahatma Gandhi-led Salt Satyagraha movement. She participated in the Quit India Movement, which was launched in opposition to British authority in India.
