International Women's Day at Bloom

International Women's Day (IWD) is marked on March 8th of every year. It is a major day of global celebration for the economic, political and social achievements of women.
Started as a political event, the holiday blended in the culture of many countries (primarily Russia and the countries of former Soviet bloc).
In some celebrations the day lost its political flavour and became simply an occasion for men to express their love to the women around them in a way somewhat similar to Mother's Day and St. Valentine's Day mixed together. In others, however, the political and human rights theme, as designated by the United Nations, runs strong, and political and social awareness of the struggles of women worldwide are brought out and examined in a hopeful manner.

At Bloom we wish to celebrate Women, and remembering all those that can't express themselves yet as a woman, as a human being, which are still too many, we will bring to light books by great women from all over the world and cherish all the accomplishments by us women!

On Saturday, March 8th, all Women will enjoy 15% discount on every purchase at Bloom!
