International Women’s Day — March 8th

Foreign students congratulate all women of the beloved Financial University on March 8th and wish you success in all your endeavours, good mood and a lot of happiness!

The FinU International Cooperation Office joins in the student’s congratulations and from the bottom of our heart we wish good health, new professional achievements, interesting projects and bright ideas!

On March 3, 2021, Deputy Head of the International Students and Faculty Department Anastasia Voytsitskaya gave a lecture within the Russian language course "POTALKUEM". The event was dedicated to International Women’s Day. 

During the class, foreign students found out about the origin of the holiday, learned about its traditions, specific features of the celebration and a number of interesting facts.

The holiday was originally dedicated to the struggle by women for their rights. In 1910, a woman named Clara Zetkin tabled the idea of an International Women’s Day at the second International Conference of Working Women in Copenhagen. She 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. March 8th became widely celebrated from the first years of the Soviet Union existence. Over the years, International Women’s Day has almost lost its feminist overtones, becoming a simple celebration of women and femininity.

The FinU foreign students learned poems in Russian and recorded a video to congratulate their mothers on International Women’s Day!
