Back in Antiquity, people glorified female beauty, generosity and noble sensuality. In ancient Rome, March 1 was celebrated as the day of the goddess Juno Lucia, the patroness of women and motherhood. This day young Roman women, respectable matrons and female slaves carried wreaths of fresh flowers to the temples and received gifts from men.
Pluck the fruits
For centuries, women have been icons of beauty and guardians of the hearth, but just as long they have been excluded from the fruits of progress, remaining in the shadow of men. But in the 19th century, women first began claiming their rights out loud. On March 8, 1957, the women of New York City protested for being ensured with decent pay and voting rights.
Since then, spring has become not only a time for women to celebrate beauty and femininity, but also to remind everyone of their independence and equality.
In 1910, Clara Zetkin proposed celebrating March 8 as International Women's Day, encouraging women around the world to stand up for their dignity and their rights.
For the first time, this holiday was celebrated on March 19, 1911, when millions of people took to the streets of cities. It was a time of the greatest hopes and aspirations, which very soon came true.
From the following year, March 8 became a public holiday, which gradually lost its former political significance and turned into a day when men give flowers and gifts, praising everything beautiful in their ladies.
