Valeria, Russian Pop-star

The 8th of March is the International Women’s Day which is acknowledged in many countries but in Russia since the Soviet times it has been very big, like Mother’s Day or St. Valentine’s Day and Lady’s Day, all in one. On this day, the price of flowers skyrockets and men all over the country go crazy in malls shopping in women’s departments. Originally the 8th of March was the day to celebrate economic, political and social achievements of women. This year the UN proclaimed a special theme for Women’s Day celebration, ending impunity for violence against women. Our guest in the studio is a beautiful woman and a mother of three, who has lived through domestic violence to be reborn as a pop superstar, Valeria.
