International Women's Day

Hello everyone!
Today's the International Women's Day, so I'd like to thank all the ladies following me for reading. Thank you!

This is for the ladies
Photograph taken & photomanipulation done today by me.



Some facts:
- International Women's Day is celebrated by the following countries: Albania, Algeria, Argentina, Armenia, Australia, Azerbaijan, Bangladesh, Belarus, Belgium, Bhutan, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Brazil, Bulgaria, Burkina Faso, Cambodia, Cameroon, Canada, Chile, China, Colombia, Costa Rica, Croatia, Cuba, Cyprus, Ecuador, Estonia, Dominican Republic, Denmark, Finland, France, Georgia, Greece, Hungary, Iceland, India, Italy, Israel, Laos, Latvia, Lithuania, Kazakhstan, Kosovo, Kyrgyzstan, Macedonia, Malta, Mexico, Moldova, Mongolia, Montenegro, Nepal, Norway, Pakistan, Poland, Philippines, Portugal, Romania, Russia, Serbia, Seychelles, Slovakia, Slovenia, South Africa, Sweden, Spain, Syria, Sri Lanka, Taiwan, Tajikistan, Thailand, Turkey, Turkmenistan, Uganda, Ukraine, United States, Uruguay, Uzbekistan, Vietnam and Zambia. (From Wikipedia)
- In many regions, the day lost its political flavour, and became simply an occasion for men to express their love for women in a way somewhat similar to a mixture of Mother's Day and St Valentine's Day. (From Wikipedia)
- In Poland (where I was raised and live currently) this day is an occasion for men to express their love, fondness and adoration to all women in their lives (e.g. mothers, grandmothers, sisters, cousins, girlfriends, fiancées, wives and just any female friends they might like) which makes it different from Valentine's Day or Mother's Day.

Hope you like it ;)

  4. this has been the best women's day reminder that I saw so far. At first this day pushed me into labeling this as just another women-being-treated-equally-thing, but hey, we should all just be as positive as you
