Women have influence in all aspects of our society. They are the cornerstone of families, CEO’s of large companies, teachers, doctors, and so much more. We are privileged in the United States to say that women share in equal human rights, something that cannot be said about every nation around our globe. Due to this fact, on March 8th, International Women’s Day is set aside as a time to bring issues to light and develop plans of action; while celebrating the evolution of women’s rights and the advances recently made.
Over 100 years ago, a gathering of women in the Soviet Union banded together to protest the inequality and oppression they felt; over time, the idea has gained traction and credibility. Today, there are approximately 30 countries that officially take part in the worldwide initiative; and an estimated 70 additional nations that hold gatherings and rallies. In 2011, President Obama declared the entire month of March to be Women’s History Month in the U.S., and encouraged citizens to remember the sacrifice and significant change that women have effected in this nation.
Although in our own lives we may not know women who are in the news, we do interact with women everyday who make substantial impacts in their own communities. Blossom Flower Shops can help you to celebrate the compassionate, brave and influential women in your life. Whether a bouquet of orchids to embody her beauty; or a palm plant to represent her great success, the language of flowers can be used to create a floral gift that speaks directly to her unique gifts and achievements.
If your everyday hero is in Yonkers, White Plains or across America, allow Blossom Flower Shops to design an arrangement that will honor her this International Women’s Day. But March 8th will be her before you know it, so call us today!
