Women empowerment has been stressed upon a lot in the last few decades. A look into the past tells us about two major events that boosted the image of women. On 8th June 1929, the U.K got its first female minister while another woman became the first to sail the world alone and create a new world record in 1978. Their (‘her’) story surely inspires and encourages women of the present times. In the U.S political circles, the day is remembered for key legislations like the Antiquities Bill and the Rights bill. This day also saw major developments during the World War II and devastating natural disasters. Even as New Zealand marked nuke free zones in the country, China conducted a nuke test and announced that it will hold another experiment. One of the best-selling novels in the world, ‘1984’ by George Orwell got published on this day and ‘Texaco Star Theater’ series reached television viewers across the U.S for the first time. Mankind moved towards a more equal world when on this day the American Supreme Court ordered restaurants to serve Black persons as well and Australia legalized Homosexuality. Other prominent developments include Tony Blair winning the Parliamentary elections for the second time and ‘Clones Cyclone’ clinching the featherweight title.
