International Women's Day

International Women's Day falls on Sunday 8th March in 2020.  It is always on the 8th March.

This is a global day celebrating the social, economic, cultural and political acheivements of all women.  It stems from after the Socialist Party of America organised a Women's Day in New York City on February 28th, 1909.  German revolutionary Clara Zetkin, then proposed at the 1910 International Women's Conference that the 8th March be honoured for a day of working women.  That days has been celebrated as International Women's Day eversince. 

Mimosa is the flower symbol for International Women's Day, as it's more commonly called in Italy, la Festa della Donna, where the importance of women is celebrated by the giving and receiving of mimosa blossom. ... Nowadays, women also hand the flowers to other women as a sign of solidarity.
