Hi my dear Women Hubbers,
I find HP is now a great platform of women writers. They are more active and write interesting stories here. It is my pleasure to wish all Women Hubbers a Very Very Happy Women's Day. Keep on your spirit and writing more.
Thank you! A lovely post to lift the spirits
When is it Man's Day?
Szanne Day, thank you for the comments. And you asked about Men's Day. Sure, we have. I got a sharp answer from Wikipedia, which I share here with pleasure.
International Men's Day (IMD) is an annual international event celebrated on 19 November. Inaugurated in 1992 as 7 February by Prof Thomas Oaster, the project was re-initialised in 1999 in Trinidad and Tobago. The longest running celebration of International men's day is Malta, where events have occurred since 7 February 1994.
International Men's Day, now standardised globally as 19 November finds support from a variety of individuals and groups in Australia, the Caribbean, North America, Asia, Europe and Africa. Speaking on behalf of UNESCO, Director of Women and Culture of Peace Ingeborg Breines said of IMD, "This is an excellent idea and would give some gender balance." She added that UNESCO was looking forward to cooperating with the organizers.
The objectives of celebrating an International Men's Day include focusing on men's and boys' health, improving gender relations, promoting gender equality, and highlighting positive male role models. It is an occasion to highlight discrimination against men and boys and to celebrate their achievements and contributions, in particular for their contributions to community, family, marriage, and child care. The broader and ultimate aim of the event is to promote basic humanitarian values.
International Men's Day is celebrated in over 70 countries, including Antigua and Barbuda, Australia, Austria, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Botswana, Burundi, Canada, the Cayman Islands, China, Croatia, Cuba, Denmark, France, Ghana, Grenada, Hungary, India, Ireland, Italy, Isle of Man, Jamaica, Malta, Nigeria, Norway, Pakistan, Romania, Saint Kitts and Nevis, Saint Lucia, Seychelles, Singapore, South Africa, Tanzania, Trinidad and Tobago, Ukraine, the United Kingdom, the United States, and Zimbabwe, on 19 November, and global support for the celebration is broad.
Let Me Google That For You:
Thank you very much. In Japan, Girls' Day is March 3rd. Yesterday, I went to the local Japanese Cultural Center, and they had a post celebration there. It included a Tea Ceremony. That tea was POWERFUL!
thanks, happy women's day to all ladies, grandmas, moms at HP and all over the Google website!!

Very great post, Sunil! I appreciate you for this great post on behalf of all here. I was busy blogging on a controversial BBC documentary "India's Daughter" on my blog and then in pinning ICC worldcup pins on pinterest. Now, I find your greetings and wishes here.
May I add my best wishes also here to all our women hubbers and all women whom I regard as my sisters, daughters and lovely friends! Wish you all my best wishes.
Venkatachari Sir, thank you for your compliments. it's our responsibility to wish them on this wonderful day exclusively dedicated for them. Glad to know you are well engaged on your creative job-writing. Meantime, let me ask you, will India get Cup this time. Observing their progress, I do see there is chance for our nation. Let's pray.

Women's Day....Is it the way to say we are weaker as we need a day dedicated to us. But then every where we prefer to say we are equal? If we are equal then there should be a Men's Day or this women's day should be abolished...what is your view?I am not against women's day but just a thought here.
