International Women’s Day
With the coming of spring, everything is gently coming to life again. And one of the beautiful holiday is celebrated on March 8th. The International Women’s Day that is celebrated in many countries around the world for over 100 years. It is a day when women are recognized for their achievements, as well as for changes when it comes to gender parity.
In the Republic of Moldova this is a fair opportunity to compliment with flowers and other presents the most dear women in our lives (mothers, wives, daughters, sisters, beloved ones), besides, officially this is a day-off, so everyone can relax and rest with pleasure.
The 8th of March had been determined to be the women’s day as early as in 1914, when only 6 countries celebrated this holiday (Austria, Denmark, Germany, Holland, Russia and Switzerland), and only in year 1975 UN decided to declare this date as an International Woman’s Day.
