International Women’s Day

March 8th, 2012 · No Comments · General Posts

Holidays are imortant and we tend to remember them because that means a day off school or work. It makes us happy and thrilled to take some time to ourselves. Oftentimes, big holidays overshadow smaller days which are regular work days but are equally important. The International Women’s Day is one of those. What most of us don’t know is that this day has been observed since the 1900’s when women began to gain equal status in our society. It is the perfect day to take a moment to call your mom, your grandmother, give flowers to your girlfriend or just take a minute to yourself.

Marked by a modest flowering pot of purple mums at our reference desk, we would all like to wish you a wonderful Women’s Day! You ladies ROCK!
