The 8th of Marchember
Хуйбик Рубика

"In some regions, the day lost its political flavor, and became simply an occasion for men to express their love for women in a way somewhat similar to a mixture of Mother's Day and Valentine's Day."

И очень жаль.

"Inspired in part by the American socialists, German Socialist Luise Zietz proposed the establishment of an annual 'International Woman's Day' (singular) (...) The following year, on March 19, 1911, IWD was marked for the first time, by over a million people in Austria, Denmark, Germany and Switzerland. In the Austro-Hungarian Empire alone, there were 300 demonstrations. In Vienna, women paraded on the Ringstrasse and carried banners honouring the martyrs of the Paris Commune. Women demanded that women be given the right to vote and to hold public office. They also protested against employment sex discrimination."

Актуальность борьбы за фактические права женщины нисколько не уменьшилась, а протестов что-то не видать. Суфражистки своего добились, а остальным почему-то хватает и благодарности за, как написал какой-то остряк: "their heroism and selflessness at the front and in the rear" (цитирую по сегодняшней английской Википедии)... :-(

That's very wrong.

Прошу считать меня феминистом :-)

Кстати, понятия не имел, на заметку: "This is a day which some people celebrate by wearing purple ribbons."
