Mexican Constitution Day

Constitution Day in Mexico is a holiday every 5 February to commemorate the approval of the Mexican constitution by the Mexican constitutional congress in 1917, signalling an end of an era of grave discrimination, unfair labor laws, and gross inequalities for Mexican citizens.

The Mexican Constitution of 1917 is an impressive document as it was the first of the known world to outline social rights. Because of this, it became a model for comparable documents of other nations including the Russian Constitution of 1918 and the Weimar Constitution of 1919.
