International Women’s Day

International Women’s Day is observed on March 8 every year. Here is the link to the website of International Women’s Day 2008. In some countries, Mother’s Day is celebrated on March 8 as well.

This event seems to originate from protests by women against exploitation at the workplace. It was first declared as a non-working day in the former USSR to recognise the contribution of Soviet women in building, defending and strengthening the former Soviet Union. It continues to be observed as a holiday in many former socialist countries, among others.

To all women, including the women in my life, a BIG thank you ! Enjoy your day, Venusians! I cannot imagine what the Earth would be like without you !

I hope that you continue to fight for your rights and get them! You deserve to get what has been denied to you for millenia!

    You are welcome and thanks for your kind words. I may not be sweet at all times, I also tend to be sour sometimes 🙂 I just try to look at the travails of people who are oppressed, even if I am not one of them. I always stand for equality!

  4. Francina,

    Hola! Gràcies! 🙂

    No problem! I know your blog is a professional one, so it is natural to have only professional friends there.

    You can be very proud to be a girl, Francina. Women and girls are the people who bring joy and cheer to the lives of men and boys! Life for us would be unimaginable without you as you are the people who give us life! We would not even exist without you! 🙂

    maybe but…
    living with no men…
    TOO BORING! hahahaha…

  8. Sí, Francina, I realise that women would feel bored with no men around! This fact has led me to imagine my own theories about men and women. And you women and girls are just confirming those theories! 🙂
