Happy International Women's Day!
Did you know that in Russia men buy flowers for all the women in their life on IWD--in recognition of their contribution to communistic construction?
In fact, IWD is very much tied in with the principles of socialism, the first one observed in 1909 in the US following a declaration by the Socialist Party of America.
Demonstrations marking International Women's Day in Russia marked the first stage of the Russian Revolution of 1917.
Just a little history lesson for you. Now, where are the flowers in recognition of my ongoing push for a domestic revolution around here (think global, act local)?! Funny--no-one seems to have noticed...
Oh, and happy Labour Day too. Hope you're not working too hard--or at all, ideally.
