Die Tageszeitung, March 8, 2016
Home to the one of the founders of International Women's Day, Germany devoted ample coverage Tuesday to the 105th edition of the celebration, which aims to raise awareness of the struggles of women worldwide.
In 1910, German socialist Luise Zietz was one of the first to suggest establishing an annual "International Woman's Day" to promote equal rights for women, including voting.
Berlin-based daily Tageszeitung dedicated the front page of its special edition to women's "inner corset" together with an illustration depicting how "modesty, uprightness, courtesy and a grotesque perfectionism inhibit too many women."
Meanwhile, the below front page of Düsseldorf's Rheinische Post presents "Women from A to Z," breaking down social issues in the 26 letters of the alphabet, and suggesting that it would take 118 more years to bridge the gap between the sexes.
In neighboring Austria, German-language Kleine Zeitung focuses on "What women want," with the daily stating in a manifesto penned by its staff that though much has been achieved, full emancipation, be it in everyday life, society or politics, is still unfulfilled.
