When do we celebrate International Women’s Day?

przez Tomasz

We celebrate International Women’s Day on March 8 every year. It was established in 1910 in Copenhagen by the Congress of the Socialist International, but then it was held on March 19 – this date was changed in 1921 to the one that is still in force today. This day was intended to promote the idea of women’s rights – when it was first announced, most women in the world did not have the right to vote. Today, March 8 is an official holiday, primarily in the countries of the former Soviet Union, incl. in Russia, Belarus or Ukraine, while in many countries it is celebrated informally – including Poland. It is common in our country that on this day men give women tulips, while in Italy, for example, women get acacia twigs.
