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
