March 8 – International Women’s Day. It is based on suffragism, emancipation and various types of women’s struggle for rights. Under the name Suffragettes, we will bring together different types of women’s rights activists, although this applies to a greater extent to the history of the United States.
The Poulaines (or Crakows; crackowes; pl. ciżemki; de. Schnabelschuh; sv. Snabelskor) are fashionable medieval shoes with very long toes. They were so named because the style was thought to have originated in Kraków, though the term “Poulaine”, as in souliers à la poulaine, “shoes in the Polish fashion”, referred to the long pointed beak of the shoe, not the shoe itself.
