小编摘要:3月8日是国际妇女节,但是很多国家也有自己的“妇女节”。这些形式各异的妇女节,反映了一个相同的主题,那就是社会对女性的尊重。

Women's Day marks the role of women in both the past and the present. It was started to highlight the importance of working women and bring to light their problems. However, the day is not a one-day agenda. The real challenge lies in the spontaneous flow of feelings -- honoring and celebrating womanhood on a particular March 8 only to forget its importance the next day is sacrilegious.

 

      In this article, we'd like to introduce to you the way to celebrate International Women's Day in other countries, including the countries in South Africa, U.S. and Russia.

 

      

Women's day in South Africa

        

 

In countries like South Africa, the people celebrate the national Women's day on 9 August every year with a variety of events.

 

Women's Day on 9 August marks the day, in 1956, when 20000 women marched on the Union Buildings in Pretoria to protest against one of the cornerstones of apartheid - the pass laws.

 

The countries will nowadays celebrate the month of August, by a ceremony promoting women in politics and decision-making positions, awarding them certificates of honour.

 

Women's day in U.S .

IWD was commemorated in the United States during the 1910s and 1920s, but then dwindled. It was revived during the women's movement in the 1960s, but without its socialist associations.

 

In 1981, the U.S. Congress passed a resolution establishing National Women's History Week. The week was chosen to coincide with International Women's Day, March 8. In 1987, Congress expanded the week to a month. Every year since, Congress has passed a resolution for Women's History Month, and the U.S. president has issued a proclamation. Since its founding, the National Women's History Project has recognized and celebrated the rich and varied contributions of women to the history and culture of the United States.

 

The 2005 Women's History Month theme, "Women Change America," honors and recognizes the role of American women in transforming culture, history and politics as leaders, writers, scientists, educators, politicians, artists, historians, and informed citizens. "Women Change America" also celebrates the myriad ways in which the spirit, courage, and contributions of American women have added to the vitality, richness, and diversity of American life.

 

Women's day in Russia

 

Kollontai, a minister in the first Soviet government, persuaded Lenin to make March 8 an official communist holiday in 1909. During the Soviet period, the holiday celebrated "the heroic woman worker."

 

Today the Russians are still the premier celebrators of the March 8 holiday. Around the world, the event is a way to honor women's contributions to history. But in Russia, the festivities go a step further - celebrated in the fashion of Mother's Day with flowers or breakfast in bed-in which men boys are expected to bestow presents and show appreciation for the women in their lives.

 

       Tips on Women's Day


       This day is a great way to honor the women in our lives- mothers, sisters, wives, daughters - everyone should be made to feel special. Here are a few ways by which you can mark the day:


       1. Think about all those women who have helped in their own way to shape your life. Do something they would have liked.


       2. Consider cooking their favorite food, planting their favorite flowers in your garden or sending a check to their favorite charity. The idea is to make them feel special.


       3. Host an all women's party and have a ball of a time.


       4. Shower the women in your life with wonderful gifts (if you're a man) expressing your love and respect towards their individuality.


       5. Accept graciously when the men in your life shower you with gifts (if you're a woman).
