Learn to say Women’s Day on a few different languages:

Internationaler Frauentag – German

The Prussian king was the first one to promise to introduce votes for women,  back in the 1848. His promise gave hope to all women, but it was a promise that he failed to keep. Almost hundred years later, the first International Women’s Day was organized on March 19th, and later that date was moved to March 8th.

New Zeland was first countr  in the history which gave women the right to vote. Croatia did it in 1945 and United Arab Emirates only 8 years ago.

In Russia, Ukraine, Kazakhstan, Moldavia, Mongolia and Byelorussia Women’s day is a national holiday. In Italy, flower mimosa is a symbol of women’s day and is frequently given to women as a gift. Similar to that, in Ukraine women receive rose or tulips and in Croatia they receive a  rose or carnation.

The Talmud quotes:

Be very careful if you make a woman cry, because God counts her tears. The woman came out of a man’s rib. Not from his feet to be walked on. Not from his head to be superior, but from the side to be equal. Under the arm to be protected, and next to the heart to be loved.

He who is without a wife dwells without blessing, life, joy, help, good, and peace
