Peoples Flower Shops can’t wait to celebrate the most influential women in our lives this March 8, International Women’s Day. And while we don’t necessarily have a flower dedicated for gifting on IWD in the U.S., we’d like to nominate the orchid. Here’s why.
International Women’s Day, celebrated on March the 8th, has rallied women from all over the world for over 100 years. The movement began in the Soviet Union and Eastern bloc nations as women sought equal rights and social justice, but the idea quickly spread across Europe. With activities and celebrations in nearly 100 countries and events planned in nearly every U.S. state, it is an initiative that continues to pick up steam. The organizers of this year’s events have promoted the day’s activities to revolve around a theme, and a social media campaign – #BeBoldForChange.
