|Mimosa, the flower of choice to celebrate Women's Day in Italy|
Last year I went to a Women's Day march with my young daughter (read and see pics here), but this year pancakes have hijacked the celebrations. It's quite ironic in a way, as my family will expect the pancakes and I will be 'sent back where I belong' (to the kitchen that is). But All is Not As it Seems - my partner does a lot cooking in our house. And he is not alone, many British men enjoy cooking and let's not forget that most celebrity chefs are actually men.
|Women's Day, Italian style|
In my native country, Italy, it's a different story re cooking... but women do get bunches of mimosa on Woman's Day. Some might call it a florists' racket but men are expected to turn up with a bunch of these really cheerful flowers. Mimosas are what daffodils are to the UK, a sign of spring! I use to get them from male friends too when I was studying at university.
Happy Women's Day to all women. I will be going to some events organised in Cambridge, including a drumming workshop for women!
