Happy International Women’s Day! The beautiful diversity of our world is reflected by the diverse ways different nations celebrate this important holiday.
If you’re a woman in Italy, for instance, you may be given a yellow Mimosa (as in the flower, though I’d be partial to the drink, myself). In France, you could get some violets or lilies-of-the-valley. If you’re in Montevideo, Uruguay you might want to check out the all female drumming group La Melaza, which has been giving concerts on International Women’s Day since 2008.
