IWD sponsors


Our goal is to establish International Women’s Day as a significant occasion for honoring women through the tradition of giving flowers. March 8th, IWD, is an excellent opportunity to express our gratitude to mentors, teachers, friends, family, and all the influential women in our lives. By providing florists with a comprehensive and well-structured marketing plan, complete with all necessary creative materials and guidelines for an effective campaign, we are fostering local growth that has the potential to create enduring effects on a nationwide level!

How We Achieve This:
Our strategy includes a comprehensive 8-week marketing strategy for florists, complete with ready-to-use creative materials, email templates, social media packets, press releases and step-by-step guidance. Florists can employ these tools in their original form or customize them for their brand. The social media toolkit available February 1st, not only provides visuals and videos but also offers pre-written content and suggested hashtags for posts. Also, we provide florists with detailed guides on how to engage with local media including press releases professionally written for local media outlets and networking ideas to partner with local businesses and non-profits supporting women.

We are offering this extensive marketing roadmap, valued at over $10,000, to florists for FREE! 

Similar to how Florists’ Review led the initiative in the 1920s to transform Mother’s Day into a significant occasion for flower gifting, we are committed to elevating International Women’s Day into a major holiday to honor women with flowers. By enabling florists throughout America to establish and enhance their brand within their local communities, we believe we can develop International Women’s Day into a festive and prosperous occasion for everyone.

History of IWD

International Women’s Day began in the U.S. in 1909, inspired by women standing up for better working conditions. In 1910, at the second International Conference of Working Women held in Copenhagen, Clara Zetkin proposed that every year in every country there should be a celebration on the same day – a Women’s Day – to press for their demands. The proposal was greeted with unanimous approval by the conference of over 100 women from 17 countries. March 8 was officially adopted in 1913 and has been the day to honor and advocate for women’s achievements and rights ever since. The United Nations started celebrating the day in 1975, helping to solidify March 8 as a day of international recognition for women’s issues and progress.

Modern Times: 
Today, IWD is not affiliated with any one group, but brings together governments, women’s organizations, corporations, and charities. The day is marked with arts performances, talks, rallies, networking events, conferences, and marches. Themes are often adopted by organizations to reflect contemporary issues and focus advocacy efforts. The history of International Women’s Day is one of persistence, courage, and the undying demand for equality and recognition of women’s contributions to society.
