Happy International Women’s Day!

International Women’s Day (IWD) is celebrated on March 8 every year. It is a focal point in the movement for women’s rights.

After the Socialist Party of America organized a Women’s Day on February 28, 1909 in New York, the 1910 International Socialist Woman’s Conference suggested a Women’s Day be held annually. After women gained suffrage in Soviet Russia in 1917, March 8 became a national holiday there. The day was then predominantly celebrated by the socialist movement and communist countries until it was adopted in 1975 by the United Nations.

Today, International Women’s Day is a public holiday in some countries and largely ignored elsewhere. In some places, it is a day of protest; in others, it is a day that celebrates womanhood.

In this magazine we even want to honour all females in the animals’ world.

Sisu sends his best greetings to all the polar bear ladies in the zoos and in the wild.

Here’s a potpourri of other sweet animals bringing flowers to their mothers, sisters and daughters.

Knuti’s Weekly wishes all women throughout the world a happy Women’s Day! I hope the day will come soon when women’s rights are reality and not a dream!

  1. Dear MERVI

    That’s really very, very charming. Thank you very much for the little lesson in history and for all those more than super-cuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuute- and awwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww-pics.

    In Berlin the ‘Internationaler Frauentag’ is an official holiday (for the first time – at least in the West)!

    Enjoy YOUR day, all you females in the animal and human world!

    Die Parade der tierischen Blumengratulanten
    ist sehr fantasievoll. ­čÖé Ich w├╝nschte, wir
    br├Ąuchten keinen Frauentag und die
    Gleichberechtigung w├Ąre Realit├Ąt !

    Gr├╝ssle
    Chris ­čÖé

  3. Liebe Mervi,

    du hast einen sehr sch├Ânen Tribut zum heutigen Frauentag verfasst und
    die tierischen Gratulanten sind wundersch├Ân.
    Die Fotos zeigen, dass selbst Tiere offenbar den Zauber und den
    Duft der Blumen zu sch├Ątzen wissen.

    Liebe Gr├╝├če

  4. Dear Mervi!
    Thank you for this wonderful collection of heartwarming pics. I loved each and every of them!
    My favourite sweethearts are the bear and the little mouse(?) at the end.

    My thoughts about the International Women┬┤s Day are somehow ambivalent since I┬┤m a woman every day of the year…I┬┤m afraid one single day does not much to change gender-based discrimination and the lack of equal opportunities for women. But the reasons to install that special day are quite understandable. They will not vanish so fast…
    I wish all women a fine day and some wishes to come true!

    Hugs
    Anke

  5. Liebe Mervi,

    das ist eine sehr sch├Âne Idee zum internationalen Frauentag auch die tierischen “Frauen” zu gedenken und zu ehren.

    Die Fotos sind alle wundersch├Ân.

    Bei uns in Berlin ist ja dieses Jahr der Frauentag das erste Mal ein Feiertag. Schade nur, dass es sehr regnerisch uns st├╝rmisch war.

    Liebe Gr├╝├če
    Monika

  6. Liebe Mervi!

    Danke f├╝r diesen wundersch├Ânen Tribut an uns Ladies, mit 2 oder 4 Beinen. Die tierischen Gratulanten sind suess!

    Liebe Gr├╝├če, Erika

    I think that Polar Bear females are an example to all of us for their strength, courage and intelligence.
