International Women's Day, Day of Struggle
International Women's Day, also called International Women's Day in some countries or regions, is celebrated on March 8. It is an international day highlighting the fight for women's rights and, in particular, for the end of inequalities in relation to men. This day comes from the history of feminist struggles carried out on the European and American continents.
On February 28, 1909, a “National Woman's Day” was observed in the United States for the first time at the call of the Socialist Party of America. Following a proposal by Clara Zetkin in August 1910, the Socialist International Women celebrated on March 19, 1911, the first “International Women's Day” and demanded women's right to vote, the right to work and the end of discrimination at work. Since then, protests and demonstrations have taken place every year.
It was Soviet Russia which was the first country to make it official in 1921 by making it a public holiday but not a day off until 1965. The event remained mainly confined to the countries of the socialist bloc until the end of the 1960s, when it will be taken over by the second feminist wave. It was finally in 1977 that the United Nations made the day official, inviting all the countries of the planet to celebrate a day in favor of women's rights. It is mainly a day of demonstrations around the world: an opportunity to take stock of the situation of women in society and to demand equal rights. Traditionally, groups and associations of militant women prepare demonstrations all over the world, to achieve their demands.
In popular language, marketing and the media, it is sometimes referred to, improperly, by the expression “Women's Day”. What is then an important day of struggle is often hijacked as a mere commercial celebration.
The idea of this explanation is to give flowers to women not because it is their “day” but because they represent a centuries-old battle that still continues today throughout the world.
They are the pillar of this war of the sexes and through the language of flowers, this is an opportunity to show them that they should never give up.
Why give flowers on this day?
More than ever, giving flowers on this day must make sense. This is an opportunity to offer a gift with the heart.
This is a celebration because every small right granted to women must be celebrated.
- Offer flowers to support all the women who are abused in all countries of the world. Bring them color and comfort to show them that they are not forgotten.
- Offer flowers to encourage them in their quest to achieve equal pay.
- Offer flowers to highlight their civic and political rights.
- Offer flowers to support them, so that they obtain more independence and autonomy within their couple.
- Offer flowers to support the rights to their bodies.
- Offer flowers to tell them that they deserve to be considered in the urban space, which is sometimes too focused on the male sex.
