International Women’s Day is observed annually on March 8th to celebrate the strength of women pushing for the merits of equality every day.
We want to bring awareness and guidance to this great holiday with all of the flowers we have to offer!
This is a holiday of respect, appreciation, love and celebration of women’s economic, political and social achievements. The holiday started in Eastern Europe and Russia as a point of political empowerment in women, but lost its political notion in some regions and became simply an occasion for men to show their love for women in a similar way to Mother’s Day and Valentine’s Day, without the notion of parenthood or relationships.
In other regions though the political notion still holds strong, designed by the United Nations to promote political and social awareness of the struggles and strength of women worldwide. Some people celebrate this holiday by wearing Purple Ribbons, or by giving purple flowers.
The first occurrence of this incredible holiday was as far back as May of 1908, in Chicago. The holiday is still moving forward as hard as the incredible women fighting for the cause are today. Let’s celebrate the strength of the women of the world with flowers and celebratory gifts!
Show appreciation for the strong women around you, working hard to push forward equality and human rights in this vast world we live in – give flowers to the women around you.test
