Former Big Brother Naija housemate, Tboss, as not to be left out of yesterday’s International Women’s Day celebration.
Taking to her Instagram page, TBoss posed in a black strapless one-piece to celebrate International Women’s Day. Sharing the photo, she wrote;
The Ability to be Hard yet Soft.
Put others before yourself.
But most especially the ability to Fall in Love- Again & Again & Again.
Happy International Women’s Day to ALL the Amazing women out there, May we know them & May we Become them.
The International Women’s Day (IWD) is celebrated on March 8 every year. It is a focal point in the movement for women’s rights.
After the Socialist Party of America organized a Women’s Day on February 28, 1909, in New York, the 1910 International Socialist Woman’s Conference suggested a Women’s Day be held annually. After women gained suffrage in Soviet Russia in 1917, March 8 became a national holiday there. The day was then predominantly celebrated by the socialist movement and communist countries until it was adopted in 1975 by the United Nations.
Today, International Women’s Day is a public holiday in some countries and largely ignored elsewhere. In some places, it is a day of protest; in others, it is a day that celebrates womanhood.
