How did Women's Day come about? Facts about March 8.

It all started in 1910, when Clara Zetkin, at the International Conference of Women Socialists in Denmark, called for the creation of an International Women's Day where women could gather and organize marches on the right to work, poverty, peace and respect. This International Women's Day was celebrated for the first time in Europe on 19 March 1911.

In several European cities, this date changed every year, and in 1912 it was celebrated on May 12, March 1913.

The history of the March 8 celebration in Tsarist Russia began with rallies and demonstrations. On March 8, 1917, a textile strike took place, followed by a march with slogans on women's rights. It was one of the waves of protest that led to the February Revolution. The March 8 celebration coincided with a turning point in Russian history.

The history of the March 8 celebration of the 1970s was mainly about revolutionaries and their struggle for women's independence.

During the Soviet era, the March 8 celebration was declared a holiday. In 1965, Women's Day was celebrated to commemorate the outstanding merits of Soviet women in communist construction, defending their homeland during the Great Patriotic War, their heroism and dedication, and their great contribution to strengthening the friendship of nations and the struggle for peace.

The United Nations declared 1975 the International Year of Women. Since then, 8 March has officially become International Women's Day. Although initially revolutionary in the political spirit of March 8th, women's day was not as political in its 90s and began to be celebrated as a celebration for women around the world.

What flowers do you choose not to give on March 8?

Flowers with coloring: Often in stores we see flowers that have been blown away, for example with gold, silver, bronze color. It is better to leave such flowers for thematic events, but not to choose to give them on Women's Day. In addition, a flower with this coloring can wither by evening.

Artificial Flowers: Although artificial flowers can look and smell almost like living flowers, it is better to leave such flowers for decorations, compositions or other events that require the flowers to last long. Often, many women also do not like artificial flowers.

Yellow Flowers: Yellow tulips are like farewell messengers. In flower language, yellow means jealousy, betrayal, separation. Even if the bouquet itself looks beautiful and playful, the woman can understand the gesture as a break in relationships.

Red carnations: For most people, carnations are associated with flowers placed at the foot of the monument. Historically, red carnations have a negative symbol - blood and aggression. Unless your woman is passionate about red carnations, you better not choose these flowers.
