International Women’s Day was among the holidays that were proposed to be canceled in Nezalezhnaya. However, the majority of Ukrainians did not agree with this. A bill on the abolition of the celebration in Ukraine of March 8, May 1 and Victory Day has been submitted to the Verkhovna Rada. The initiative was proposed by MPs from the Servant of the People and Holos parties. Thus, the parliamentarians were going to eliminate the legacy of the “colonial past in cultural life and daily life”, as well as “disengage the state calendar from the dates imposed by the past”.However, people in Ukraine voted against canceling the holiday on March 8. And more than 50% of users of the state’s online service supported the preservation of Women’s Day. Now, representatives of the Servant of the People party are proposing to at least rename International Women’s Day as International Women’s Rights Day.
