The act of gift-giving is a fundamental behavior that dates beyond the existence of humanity. Long before humans walked the earth, animals have been giving gifts in exchange for potential mating, receiving favors, and also to welcome new arrivals to the pack. However, the way we view and take part in gift-giving in the modern-day only really began in the 19th century, when technological evolution made it easier to give a wider range of gifts. While cavemen gave gifts of teeth and stones, we twenty-first-century humans know the best gifts for new parents are those that make their lives a little easier. This is traditionally done at a baby shower.

After all, corporate traditions and what’s considered “bon ton” for business relations in the region mostly formed in the last two to three decades is sometimes still influenced by the Soviet past.

Celebrating Women’s Day in Russia & How It’s Changing

The fight for justice is global, but today we’re going to look at it through the lens of Women’s Day in Russia. Throughout history, all over the world, we as humans (and most especially women) have stood up for what we believe in. The struggle for equity, equality, and recognition is a constant uphill battle and one we still fight to this day. In this article we’ll look at one of the most iconic protests in history. We want to show you how we came together for the greater good, starting in Russia, one of International Women’s Day’s birthplaces

Women’s Day has grown over the last century, but sadly, not as much as you would think. Many countries that heavily celebrate it, are countries affiliated with the Russian regime, including the Warsaw Pact Countries, Afghanistan, and some parts of South America. Recently, the #MeToo movement of the 2000’s inspired a new generation and put them at the forefront of this holiday all over the world.
