Week 1 Problem D

Post  Archis on Thu Oct 09, 2008 8:30 am

On 8 March 1857, women garment workers in New York City staged a protest against inhumane working conditions and low wages. Two years later, these women formed their first labour union to protect themselves and gain some basic rights in the workplace. On 8 March 1908, 15,000 women marched through New York City demanding shorter work hours, better pay, voting rights and an end to child labour. They adopted the slogan Bread and Roses, with bread symbolizing economic security and roses signifying a better quality of life. In May of that year, the Socialist Party of America designated the last Sunday in February for the observance of National Women's Day. In accordance with the declaration, the first National Women's Day was observed on 28 February 1909. It continued to be celebrated on the last Sunday of February through 1913. What date was National Woman's Day in 1913?

NOTE: To all doing this problem, 1912 is a leap year.

My solution:
Spoiler:

My solution:
Every year the last sunday of the month will be a day back.
1910- Last Sunday on 27th
1911- Last Sunday on 26th

Because 1912 is a leap year, the reasoning is the last Sunday will be two days back from last year.
1912- Last Sunday on 24th
1913- Last Sunday on 23rd

My answer is thus the 23rd of February
