Happy Woman’s Day!

It’s March 8th

Happy Woman’s Day!

Although it was originally called International Working Woman’s Day and started as a Socialist political event, it has since blended into a  day of appreciation for women and has lost its political flavour.

During communism the standard gift women received were carnations and nylon stockings.

Nowadays we settle for a bunch of tulips and a box of chocolates 🙂

Here are some WWII posters from the USA

And here are some from the other side of the Iron Curtain

Dobrobyt wsi, to dobrobyt miast

Pozdrawiamy kobiety pracujące

Chodź! razem z nami

Uprzejmie i szybko obsługujemy ludzi pracy

  1. Flowers and chocolates sound wonderful to me, but we can’t forget about million of women in many countries who still have to fight for their basic human rights!!!

  2. Информация соответствует действительности?

    • Sorry, learned Russian for a few years at primary school, but don’t really know a word 😦 shame on me!
      I think your asking if they are authentic. Yes, they are. Both the American and the Polish posters are authentic vintage from the 40s and 50s.
