Celebrate International Women's Day With Mimosas

international womens day blog

 

International Women's Day is on the 8th of March this year! It's an amazing annual celebration of the historical, cultural, and political achievements of women all over the world. And let's face it, the achievements are many! 
We're proud to have so many lovely ladies on our team (and of course some great guys too), so we're all for a whole day celebrating them! 

The History 

In August 1910 an  International Women’s Conference was organised by a women called Clara Zetkin; a German suffragist and leader in the Women’s Office. Zetkin  proposed a special Women’s Day to be organised annually and from that point forward International Women’s Day has been celebrated by women (men, and everyone in between!) across the world every year. The work done by the founders of International Women's Day, and Suffragettes across the world, was the first step towards a more equal world for women, so thanks ladies!

The Flowers

The flowers that represent International Womens Day are Mimosas! They were chosen by feminists in Italy as a symbol of strength for Women's Day. They picked the flower in 1946, to mark the first International Women's Day after the end of World War II. Which seems even more poignant at the moment.

These sunny flowers are a beautiful symbol of femininity and womanhood, and make a stunning gift to the important women in your life this International Women's Day! But, if they're not a fan of yellow, a pretty little posy in one of our jam jars is an equally sweet gesture. Pick from our ready made arrangements or choose their favourite flowers in the shop, and our florists will make something extra special just for them!

2022 Theme 

The campaign theme for International Women's Day in 2022 is #BREAKTHEBIAS. Whether deliberate or unconscious, bias makes it difficult for women to move ahead. Knowing that bias exists isn't enough. Action is needed to level the playing field! Find out more about International Women's Day and how you can celebrate on their website
