March 8th is International Women’s Day 2019. “International Women’s Day is a global day celebrating the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women – while also marking a call to action for accelerating gender balance.” (International Women’s Day)
In honor of International Women’s Day, we’re recognizing our Jet Fresh Flower Growers team which is 85% female. Like many flower farms around the world, including ours, the quality of your fresh-cut flowers are in the hands of talented, hard-working women. Join us in celebration of these dedicated women who are involved in various stages of our rose production from maintaining the greenhouse, to harvesting the stems and packaging them.

“Purple is historically associated with efforts to achieve gender equality. In this context it was first used alongside green and white as the colors of the Women’s Social and Political Union, the organisation that led Britain’s women’s suffrage movement in the early 20th century.” International Women’s Day is also an official public holiday in Russia after women gained suffrage in 1917.
Pantone selected “ultra-violet” as its “Color of the Year” for 2018 to “communicate originality, ingenuity and visionary thinking that points us towards the future,” according to International Women’s Day. Click here for ultra-violet floral inspiration.
