International Women's Day (IWD), originally called International Working Women's Day, is marked on March 8 every year. In different regions the focus of the celebrations ranges from general celebration of respect, appreciation and love towards women to a celebration for women's economic, political, and social achievements. Started as a Socialist political event, the holiday blended in the culture of many countries, primarily in Europe, including Russia. In some regions, the day lost its political flavor, and became simply an occasion for men to express their love for women in a way somewhat similar to a mixture of Mother's Day and Valentine's Day. In other regions, however, the political and human rights theme 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. This is a day which some people celebrate by wearing purple ribbons.

a different photographical interpretation for IWD but a beautiful image in its own right. Lovely colours and nicely composed.

Hello Once again Indra,
Beautiful red rose, whom do you want to give it to? :-)
Unique dedication for IWD, I like the concept. Great image quality (in the larger version it looks more beautiful) and lovely colours. Excellent once again.
Thanks for sharing.

World women day, I hope that in all countries in the world the women get the same liberties.
That men and women become treated without fight and war.
A nice composition, perfect captured.
Very well done, TFS.
Have a nice weekend,

A very nice post for this day, a rose is symbolic in so many ways. Tough, gentle, beautiful, resilient and fleeting. The depth of field is beautifully done to put the focus so well on the subject, and the rose itself is a fine example. Normally I find it hard to find one that does not have lots of holes from being eaten by bugs, so a great choice.
You have taken this rose in a garden of many, and made it a star.
All the best
