Today all the Russian women take congratulations, flowers and gifts, receive postcards and watch holiday concerts on TV. Today is "International Women Day". To say the truth I don't know which countries it really celebrates in except former USSR countries.
- "Each member of the Komsomol must acquire military equipment", M. Bri-Bein, 1932
- "Eighth of March is a day of rebellion against the workers of kitchen slavery", B. Deikin, 1932
In Soviet Union this holiday was the symbol of women's liberation and emancipation. Propaganda communist posters urged women to actively use the achievement of freedom: to vote, to work in the fields, to learn to manage military equipment and so on. But of course there were difficult times and young destroyed country needed in working hands. Even in small female hands. Now it's just beautiful holiday without any political taste. A kind of Mother Day.
