Happy Women’s Day

woment vote

It’s 8 of March so I just want to wish Happy Woman’s Day to all my female readers.

Just a bit of fun-fact regarding what we are celebrating today. Originally it was a socialist celebration. In the Russian Empire in 1917, textile working women from Petrograd started protesting. 7 days later women were granted the right to vote. It was celebrated mostly by communist countries until 1975, when the United Nations adopted it as a national holiday. Read it all on wikipedia.
