International Women's Day





Arseniy
So, we reached March 8, and it's listed like International Women's Day holiday.
Congratulations, all females around Frihost! I wish you great health, long ages to live and to be beautiful like always! Wink
I don't know where this holiday is celebrated (wikipedia doesn't have this article Sad ) so I'm feliciating all women and girls around the world Smile

Compliments are allowed. Very Happy

Why the hell is this "day" necessary, oh yeah thanks 50% of worlds population for what you did for the other 50%!, this is so useless, why is there no mens day then? Are we useless or do women think that they are still considered inferior? Sorry but this is simply pointless...

Well, considering women have gone through more persecution than men, we should appreciate the advancement of civilization.

Actually, I'd have to agree with Reddishblue here. If it doesn't affect you, it shouldn't matter.

Although many wrongs were commited centuries past, on both sides, we should learn from our ancestors mistakes and move on.

Otherwise, we will be seeing the minories gaining more power. In my opinion, equality is the only way to the future.

We may as well have "International African-American's Day" (No, I am not being racist. This is just an example), too. They, as a people, were persected even more.

Well, we in Ukraine have the Day of Defencemen of Homeland. It's on 23rd February and we list it like Day of the Men.
We must court the beautiful half of mankind and this day is our homage of respect for women for all that they do for us.
*blah... I didn't understood what I wrote over there^=)))*

Well, I think Women's Day was started from an idéa in a house/disco for youngs in Denmark that is actually being demolished and that has lead to demonstrations and riots and such stuff. Demolished yesterday . Day before women's day.

Um...No this day was not announced yesterday, I don't even know what you are talking about, how on earth has this got anything to do with womens day?

It is a major day of global celebration for the economic, political and social achievements of women. Started as a political event, the holiday blended in the culture of many countries (primarily Russia and the countries of former Soviet bloc).

The first IWD was observed on 28 February 1909 in the United States following a declaration by the Socialist Party of America.
