Adele, Sarah Jessica Parker and Chelsea handler are just a few of the Hollywood stars taking advantage of social media Wednesday to support International Women's Day.
This year, the same group which organized the Women's March also put together the "A Day Without a Woman" strike, urging women to take the day off from work, avoid shopping all day and wear red in "solidarity."
"On International Women's Day, March 8th, women and our allies will act together for equity, justice and the human rights of women and all gender-oppressed people, through a one-day demonstration of economic solidarity," reads a statement from the organization's website.
It's still early in the day, but tons of stars have already posted their support for the cause online. We'll continue to update this post all day.
Most women can't afford to strike today. Let every hard working broad we meet feel the force of our gratitude. #internationalwomensday— Martha Plimpton (@MarthaPlimpton) March 8, 2017
In honor & support of tomorrow's A DAY WITHOUT A WOMAN, ALL the women in my company will not be working. So in short, nothing will get done.— Ryan Murphy (@MrRPMurphy) March 7, 2017
Wishing a happy international women's day to this special lady right here. Love you mom! Thanks for making me who I am pic.twitter.com/xtTQ3w8w6J— Dustin Lynch (@dustinlynch) March 8, 2017
Today is International Women's Day. There is an initiative to wear red, not to spend money, not to go to work, to do what you can to remind the world how essential women are. If you can't do any of these things, if your life prohibits you from doing so, don't. If you want to support the initiative in your own way, you can. If you don't care, then keep it moving. I'm done with overly simplistic comments from people who are looking to complain about celebrities and their privilege. I'm aware of my privilege and that doesn't make me care any less. Let's remember that a reality star born into wealth is now President. (Also, a man who bragged about sexually assaulting women) Some of you complaining voted for him. So there is a disconnect. In any event, women all over the world, including this country, are struggling for equality. I stand with them. #internationalwomensday
It's time to end all forms of discrimination. Let's support and love one another. Happy Women's Day for all women around the world! #equality #loveistheanswer #internationalwomensday ❤🌎 É hora de acabar com todas as formas de discriminação. Vamos apoiar e amar uns aos outros. Feliz dia das mulheres para todas mulheres ao redor do mundo! #igualdade #oamoréaresposta #diainternacionaldasmulheres
This #InternationalWomensDay I wanted to honor a few of the brave and brilliant women whose life stories and accomplishments have inspired me (and countless others) to reach higher, work harder, and dare to do the impossible. Today we celebrate you, the icons, artists, nerds, explorers, activists who make our world better every day. Happy #IWD2017
"Women are not created weaker but more generous than men. They are created more beautiful and less fierce, as beauty hates to hurt and harm others. That is why they seem weak to people, but in reality they are not. Angels are the strongest of created beings, and women are closer to the angelic nature than men, as they are readier than men to carry angelic light" - Prophet Mohammed - happy women's day ❤️
Landing in Washington DC to speak at Vital Voices Global Leadership Awards, and I could not be more honored than to participate in such a special event and on #internationalwomensday. Vital Voices was created to make space for women to be heard. The founders knew then what has now become a universal truth: that women are essential to progress in their communities. Our world cannot move forward without their full participation. Today, the organization is the product of the women they have worked with, their insights into leadership and our changing world.
#Repost @womensmarch ・・・ On January 21st, we made a public commitment that we are ready to have each other's backs. That we are ready to see ourselves in another's struggles. Today, as we wear red, the color of revolutionary love and sacrifice, we hope that our commitment to each other is reinforced. Wherever you are, and however you are able to participate, what is most important is that we use the day to dig deep and ask ourselves about how women, and all gender-oppressed people, are treated in our society - from our homes to our communities to our government, from our schools to corporate boardrooms, from bathrooms to hospitals to prisons, from the day we're born until the day we die. Today, we are guided by the principle that reaffirming that gender justice is racial justice is economic justice. Today, people everywhere will again stand up for these foundational values, and will stand together in making a #DayWithoutAWoman a beacon of hope, energy and love.
Happy #InternationalWomensDay in honor of all women throughout history who through mind-bloggling diversity and deeply insulting obstacles continue to manifest their own brightest lights of integrity. Women have always been the greatest nourishment in my life, and I'm grateful beyond measure. Miss you Mom. Love you Granny. xoxo @kathrynbrolin @edenbrolin
