International Women's Day has been observed since the early 1900's and is often described as 'a collective day of global celebration and a call for gender parity'.
"Prior to the Second World War, celebrations commemorating International Women’s Day happened on various days within the month of March. However, in 1945, the Union of Italian Women voted to fix the date annually on March 8. Their reason for this was to commemorate two separate events that occurred outside of Italy. The first was the strike by women garment workers in New York on March 8, 1857, which, two years later, resulted in the formation of the United States’ first women’s union. The second event was the ‘bread and peace’ strike by Russian women on March 8, 1917. of giving women a sprig of Mimosa flower began in Italy in 1946."
"Historians cannot agree when and why the act of giving mimosa began, but there is documented evidence that men in Rome on March 8, 1946, gave the fragrant flowers to their wives, mothers, sisters and daughters as a sign of love and appreciation. Nowadays, women also hand the flowers to other women as a sign of solidarity." ~ excerpts from Italy Magazine
