Sweden's Green party spokesperson, Gustav Fridolin, has proposed that Sweden declare International Women's Day (IWD) as a non-working public holiday (red day) in Sweden.
In a Svenska Dagbladet editorial, co-signed by Green party politicians Åsa Romson and Gunvor Ericsson, Fridolin does not hint at which day should be removed and replaced with International Women's Day.
The last change to the list of official public holidays in Sweden occurred in 2005, when, following Sweden's Parliament decision (07-Jun-2002) to make June 6th, Sweden's National Day into a full public holiday, the Whit Monday public holiday was dropped from the list of public holidays in Sweden (30-Apr-2004).
