International Women’s Day

Posted by: rfifield | March 8, 2012 Comments Off on International Women’s Day |

с неом Международный Женский день! Happy International Women’s from the Language Learning Center.  It originally began as a Socialist holiday, and hence was more serious in Eastern Europe when it began in 1913. It was first celebrated in the United States, sponsored by the American Socialist Party. It became a holiday to celebrate women’s progress, and to petition for suffrage and equal rights in all nations that celebrated it. It’s traditional in Eastern Europe to give women flowers on this day, and many people around the world have the day off.
