International women’s day

Dear ladies, have a happy International Women’s day! Thank you for making this world more beautiful!

By the way, have you ever wondered why International women’s day is celebrated at 8th March? It all started in the Petrograd, the capital of the Russian Empire, back in 1917, when women working in a textile industry covered the whole city with their demonstrations. Because of this event, the Emperor of Russia Nicholas II granted women the right to vote. Since then 8th March is celebrated as a women’s day in Russia. In 1975 the United Nations adopted this event and now it is celebrated around the world!
