If it’s one thing the Soviets were good at, it was celebrating International Women’s Day, which is on March 8th every year. Unlike Mother’s Day in Western Europe and America, March 8th is a celebration of all women regardless of whether they are mothers, and of their contribution to society. Here’s a cool piece Mr. B and I heard today about the contribution of women to America’s space program in the 1960s. And here’s a story about the first Russian woman in space. Here is one of my favorite Soviet posters for March 8.
Here are some previous posts I wrote on all things women:
