Today we don't want flowers

8 March: International Women's Day.


Sometimes, over the years, celebrations lose focus. International Women's Day commemorates women's struggle for equal opportunities in society and for their rights. That was the origin. Over time, however, we were filled with roses and chocolates. They told us we were the most beautiful flower. They picked us up and took us to dinner at a nice, romantic place.

What's wrong with that? Oh, nothing. But it is important not to lose focus. Knowing that this day has been celebrated for more than a century, knowing that many women fought and dreamed of what we are achieving today, little by little. They fought for those who would come, because they knew they wouldn't get to see him themselves. Let's not forget about that. Let us never forget that, thanks to all of them, today we can be part of a very different chapter in our history.

Happy Women's Day to all.
