International Women’s Day ❀ La Festa della Donna

"The 8th of March is International Women’s Day, a festival which will be celebrated around the world. 
In Italy this very popular festival is called  La Festa della Donna
In 1946 the Unione Donna Italiana (Italian Woman Union), whilst preparing for the celebrations of the 8th of March, decided to choose an object to symbolize the event. 
The choice fell on the bright yellow flowers of the Mimosa, which is in blossom at the beginning of March, and since then this plant has become the symbol of La Festa della Donna. 
The success of the Mimosa as an emblem of Women’s Day is due not only to the fact that it blossoms at this time of year, but also to its bright yellow color, 
a symbol of vitality and joy which represents the passage from death to life. In addition to this, despite its fragile look the Mimosa is, appropriately, very resilient! 
It has become a tradition that men will buy small sprigs of Mimosa which they will then offer to women, and part of the proceedings from the sale go to support projects related to women’s causes, 
such as shelters for women subject to violence, breast cancer research, or co-operatives run by women in Third World Countries. [Source]"
