Why mimosas for Women's Day?
When people in French-speaking Switzerland and Ticino, France and
Italy talk about Women's Day, they automatically think of mimosas.
Why? This custom goes back to the Italian women's movement in Rome. In fact, on the first Women's Day of the post-war period in Rome, when the movement
was preparing to celebrate the day, it wanted to distribute flowers.
The mimosa was chosen. On the one hand because it was precisely the time of its flowering in Rome, and also because
the lightly scented branches were available in abundance.
