 International women's day
 
Hello everyone,
 
Yesterday was the International Women's day (8th march), the first ever event  took place on February 28, 1909, in New York.
This day is a  general celebration of respect, appreciation, and love towards women and a celebration for women's economic, political, and social achievements.
 
In some regions the political aspect of the event have faded and the sentimental values have been pushed forward with the various expressions of love and respect towards women.
I think it's great that such a "tradition" is still around today, of course at the time it focused on womens fight for vote and equal rights, nowadays the political dimension is less essential but is still present as in some aspects on life inequalities still persist.

International women's day is a great opportunity to commemorate the women of the past and those of the present who play a key role in life (whether it be a famous historian or a memeber of your own family)
 
As for me, this day is a perfect day to remind the women in your life that you love them.
 
This was a very short post but I hope you still enjoyed it.
