Where does Mother's Day originate?
The day is celebrated in many different ways and also on different days around the world - most countries celebrate the day between March and May. Celebrations relating to motherhood can be traced back to the Greek cult to Cybele or in Roman times the festival for Hilaria - however the way this day is celebrated is not connected to the ancient times.
Julia War Howe wrote the "Mother's Day Proclamation" in 1870, as a pacifist counterpart to the carnage of the American Civil war and the Franco-Prussian War. Howe's being a feminist stated that women had the responsibility to support and help shaping the society also on a political level.
Years after, Ann Jarvis founded 5 Mothers Day Work Clubs to help with the improvisation of sanitary and health conditions. Two years after she died her daughter Anna Jarvis started a campaign to make Mother's Day recognized as a holiday in the United States in memory of her mother. She was finally successful 7 years later in 1914.
