Every year, China celebrates International Women’s Day on March 8th. However, since university age girls in China do not like to be called “women” (a term usually reserved to people who are married), a new “Girl’s Day” started being celebrated on March 7th. This movement kicked off mostly in various universities before being picked up by various retailers. As a result, March 7th and 8th have evolved into a sort of unofficial “Valentine’s Day” and “Mothers Day” combination.
It is in that spirit that SNH48 Team NII presented a special “Girl’s Day” special stage at their Xingmeng Theater in the afternoon of March 7th.
