Women's Day

Every year on the 8th of March International Women's Day is celebrated in Russia.  Started as a political event in 1911, the holiday blended the culture of Russia and some countries of the former Soviet republics. These days the holiday has lost its political flavour, and has became simply an occasion for men to express their sympathy and love to the women around them. How is this spring holiday prepared for and celebrated? Find out in the Women's day documentary.
