International Women’s Day

In popular culture we celebrate 8 March as Women’s Day, but it is more appropriate to remember this date as International Women’s Rights Day, an important reflection on what it entails, both in terms of the social and political achievements made over the years, and the burning issue always in the headlines, the elimination of violence against women.

In the United States, the first official celebration of Women’s Day took place on 23 February 1909; in Italy, it was not until 1922.

At the end of the Second World War, on 8 March 1946, the symbol that from then on would be identified with ‘woman’ appeared: the mimosa, which blooms between February and March.
