In Uzbekistan, spring, beauty, love, and appreciation for all women are celebrated on 8 March. It is two holidays in one: Mother’s Day and International Women’s Day.

Traditionally, women are compared to a beautiful, blossoming flower and associated with nature’s rebirth in the spring time. Men spend the whole day trying to be extra kind to their Mum, wife, and daughters. They typically give them special words of praise and flowers or other gifts.

In general, women have equal rights in Uzbekistan. They have a high literacy rate and educational opportunities. They are welcome in the workforce, although barred from working night shifts or “high risk“ jobs. Women workers are given leave for pregnancy and child care as well.
