International Women’s Day 2021

March 8, 2021

March 8,1917 – Women gained suffrage in Soviet Russia. March 8 was adopted by the feminist movement circa 1967. The UN began celebrating the day in 1977.

The purpose as I understand it, is to celebrate women. To support and build each other up. To celebrate the progression of equal rights, and gender equality.

In some countries the official flower of Women’s Day is a Yellow Mimosa

The UN’s Theme for International Women’s Day 2021 is “Women in leadership: Achieving an equal future in a COVID-19 world”
