International Women’s Day in Russia

How is International Women’s Day Celebrated in Russia Today?
Today, International Women’s Day (Международный Женский День) is celebrated on March 8th, is a public holiday and is one of the favorite holidays in Russia. Over the years, International Women’s Day in Russian culture has lost its political notion and has become a mixture of St. Valentine’s Day and Mother’s Day. This day is associated with the first days of spring, warmth, first sunny rays and the most wonderful emotions.

On March 8th men and women express their love and care to the women in their lives.
When it comes to gifts, it’s more about the gesture. It is not a secret, that women like attention, and even a small thing like a card, flowers and a box of chocolates will put a smile on your lady’s face. And of course, it also depends on how well you know each other: whether you are coworkers, relatives, are dating and so on. Now, let’s skip to the fun stuff – a few words and expressions in Russian that you might need when celebrating the International Women’s Day.

Our History. Party of Freedom

The early women’s rights movement was solidly Republican, as it was a continuation of abolitionism. They were careful not to be overly partisan, but as did Susan B. Anthony, most suffragists favored the GOP. The 19th Amendment was written by a Republican senator and garnered greater support from Republicans than from Democrats.

Republican National Committee
Growth Opportunity Book-2013

“Female voters want to hear the facts; many of them run the economies of their homes and understand economics better than the men in their families. But they are also the caregivers for their families. Women need to hear what our motive is — why it is that we want to create a better future for our families and how our policies will affect the lives of their loved ones.”

America’s Party. America’s Future.

It began with America’s freedom fighters…
The Republican Party’s roots begin with those who opposed slavery and government tyranny in the early 1850’s and nominated its first presidential candidate in1856.

It is the party of Lincoln…
During the Civil War, Republican President Abraham Lincoln signed the Emancipation Proclamation to free the slaves, setting the stage for Republicans of the day to pass the 13th Amendment to outlaw slavery, the 14th to guarantee equal protection under the law, and the 15th to secure voting rights for African- Americans- fundamental freedoms that define America yet today.

It was founded on equality…
The Republican Party was the first major political party to support women’s right to vote. The 19th Amendment was ratified and added to the Constitution by the states while 26 of 36 state legislatures were under Republican control.

It is the party of Eisenhower, Reagan, and great American leaders…
Presidents during most of the late nineteenth century and the early part of the twentieth century were Republicans, including Presidents Dwight D. Eisenhower, Richard Nixon, Gerald Ford, Ronald Reagan, George H.W.Bush, and George W.Bush.

It is symbolized by the elephant…
The elephant became the symbol of the GOP- the “gallant old party”- during the 1874 mid-term elections, when cartoonist Thomas Nash showed a Democratic donkey trying to scare a Republican elephant. Today, the GOP stands for the “Great Opportunity Party”.

It remains the party of freedom…
From slavery to women’s right to vote to winning the Cold War, the Republican Party has established itself as the party of freedom, the individual, more efficient government, states’ rights, economic growth, and greater opportunity for all.
