everybody celebrates it, Dice. at school, boys buy girls flowers or sweets on Womens Day.then sometime in october its Dzień Chłopaka (boys day).

What? October??? I always thought we, men celebrated the International Day of Men between March 9th and March 7th the following year? I feel cheated! LOL

On March 8th my dad often leaves small notes for my mom (in her car, on the mirror, attached to the garage door opener, you name it). When I was a kid I thought it was so silly but now I realize how much my mom loves those notes.

They ARE silly and often illogical; usually he'll write something like "You are my sunshine and I'm your sunscreen factor 50 - let's sing in the rain", "I'm glad God made You", "You can keep my rib as long as you want!", "roses are red and sky is blue, where's my pretty wife - I need you!"

Of course he does the whole flower and gift thing too but my mom loves the little notes and saves them all...

So happy Women's day to all the ladies here;

This "small note" is to all the XX representatives here - "Thank you all for making the world prettier and gentler".

This includes all the ladies, even those not born yet.

men don't want us to buy them gifts. Really.

Yes we do; it would be a nice change from the usual. It would also teach women the art of giving. A set of golf clubs would be nice.

my boyfriend already has an impressive set of golf clubs so he has to make do with all the lingerie i buy for myself. in fact i bet that he would prefer more of that than a new set of golf clubs ;D

that's what I was thinking.. my guy insisted on procuring his toys all by himself, and definitely preferred more .. er... elusive gifts from me.

And then, Zimmy... I chewed him up and spit him out! Hehehe!

Oh dear...i don,t know how to break this to you gently...but dear old Comrade Lenin is dead , has been for some time...Also communism has kinda fallen out of favour too , so there is not much in the way of celebration of the revolution and stuff...

Has Putin gotten that Memo??

I think probably Putin will be back in power before too long...i can,t see anyone else that will get in...

I heard that in Eastern Europe womens day is seen as a communist thing and many don, t celebrate it for this reason , but most women i know think of it as a special day , and my Russian girlfriend who is no fan of the communists has had a womens day party at the school where she is a teacher , so it seems its still in favour there in Moscow...

Today i went into my friends pitza resteraunt in Poland , she is Ukrainian and she had flowers on display that somebody had given her , so i think its still very popular over this part of the world...

unfortunately I agree...

Eastern Europe womens day

I wish we celebrated it here in the US. Yesterday I brought a nice bouquet of some Hawai'ian flowers to a local cafeteria/diner just outside Honolulu where I know several of the ladies who work there daily. Then I said "Happy Women's day to you all" and the ladies gave me this perplexed look as if "is he hitting on ALL of us"? LOL

Oh well, when I explained they were all very excited. I think I might have started a new tradition in the Aloha State... LOL

I posted this on another thread but it probably belongs here...

Women love attention...is it any wonder they would like a holiday devoted to THEM?

Western culture is a complete 180 from the oppressive cultures that exist still in some places...would be nice to find a middle ground instead of an extreme at either end. Women rarely want to be equals in the modern world. What they really want are all the advantages they get for being women but also no disadvantages. If they wanted true equality they would en masse deny things like engagement rings...some don't really care but the majority expect and even demand it. If you suggest spending that money on something sensible like paying toward your home you are "unromantic" rather than exhibiting common sense. Women have been conditioned to expect these things in modern society. We like to pretend we are "enlightened" but it is still very much a game of trading things for other things. Prancing around in a mating dance and going through the motions.

I get yelled at half the time time for holding the door open because I am being "sexist" and they can "do it themselves" but who do they call for when something needs to be repaired? Not their girlfriends.

Anyway...until a Men's Day get's as much attention as Women's Day I say boycott it ;)

Fair is fair.

Doesn't matter if it's male or female who holds the door. In the US everyone holds door for everyone regardless of sex.
Polish women are spoiled.
In the US we don't celebrate Women's Days.
Valentines Day is for both male and females but in Poland they think it's for women.
Women retire earlier in Poland than men.
Women in Poland can have a year of maternity leave vs. up to 6 weeks in the US.

Is that true? Even though women on average live 5-10 years longer than men?

That depends on the employer here. Not saying you're wrong just that it depends. I wish in this arena we were more like Sweden where they have "parenthood leave" and not just maternity leave. Many couples split it up with the woman staying home half the leave and then the father takes the rest. We probably should increase the length of the stay BUT not until they find a way to pay for it.

for what it's worth:

Two dozen red and white roses and a Polish card with a personal, hand-written message made my girlfriend very happy :-)

She said I should not have spent the money, but I know she appreciated it very much.

Dzień Kobiet is alive and well in the US...

yes, but their pensions are lower because of that.

at 55, but it results in financial disadvantage as far as I know.

I doubt it:)

Polish women are spoiled.

In what sense ?

many guys i spoke to said they get yelled at when they open doors for women or offer to take their coat etc., no wonder chivalry is dying out. i always say thank you when they do that for me, i hold doors for people too.

Polish women are spoiled.

we don't only expect of men to hold the doors for us, we want a red carpet too ;)

In the US we don't celebrate Women's Days.

neither they do in UK by the looks of it, even though it's the international women's day

Valentines Day is for both male and females but in Poland they think it's for women.

that's not true, men get cards and presents as well, it's up to them if they want to treat their lady to more than just a flower and a card

Women retire earlier in Poland than men.

same in UK

Just two more examples of how 'fabulous' women think themselves to be. ... and notice guys, how women push sex when it suits them?

This is also an example of something that is happening more frequently; without knowing it women are admitting to their narcissism while pretending to be above it all.

So is that mandatory or voluntary? If women are forced to retire early and thus suffer lower pensions/retirement benefits why isn't anyone suing for sexism and gender discrimination?

When is Mens Day?

Starts at sunrise on March 9th and ends at sunset on March 7th the following year! ;)
