History:

International Women’s Day (IWD), also called International Working Women’s Day, is celebrated on March 8 every year. In different regions the focus of the celebrations ranges from general celebration of respect, appreciation and love towards women to a celebration for women’s economic, political, and social achievements. Started as a Socialist political event, the holiday blended in the culture of many countries, primarily in Europe, including Russia. In some regions, the day lost its political flavor, and became simply an occasion for men to express their love for women in a way somewhat similar to a mixture of Mother’s Day and Valentine’s Day. In other regions, however, the political and human rights theme designated by the United Nations runs strong, and political and social awareness of the struggles of women worldwide are brought out and examined in a hopeful manner. This is a day which some people celebrate by wearing purple ribbons.

In Ireland the celebrations of International Woman’s Day has grown significant over the past number of years. Much of this is due to the increasing amount of Eastern Europeans now calling Ireland their home. Men come into our flower shops to buy a bouquet or a single flower for all the women in their live: Partner, wife, mother, sister, daughter, work colleauge, etc. Celebrating the importance of these women in their life.

This tradition has been picked up by many Irish men as a gesture of recognition for the women in their life.

International Woman's Day is on 8th March.
