Happy International Women’s Day!

It’s a global day to celebrate all female achievements–past, present, and future.
Courageous women began it in the early 1900s, holding demonstrations for the right to vote and for equal pay and working conditions.

The Union of Italian Women officially declared March 8 Women’s Day in 1945.
The scent of mimosas is everywhere, reminding us that spring is near

At night, girlfriends get together and have fun…and maybe get a little wild...

At the Rome Observatory this year, there will be an event called Women Prefer the Stars:
An evening to talk about women, think of them and remember how they focused their eyes to the stars through the ages.

Wishing All of you Happy Celebrations!

    I’m glad women are appreciated for at least one day. There are a lot of ‘Rosie Riviters’ among the women of the world.

      I agree 100%, it is great that a day was dedicated to remember the past, honor the present and inspire the future of women!
