Today I am grateful for the fact that I was born in the USSR. We had our share of problems, but International Women’s Day (international! and all women’s, not just mothers’) was a public holiday. Women worked while their children were cared for by state nurseries and schools, women received the same salary for the same job, women flew into space, women were scientists, engineers, lawyers, architects – you name it.
