Here are some awesome celebrities honoring International Women’s Day

Girl power

It’s International Women’s Day. An official day, first suggested in 1910, to celebrate the women of the world. The United Nations adopted the day in 1970.

In moving and inspiring ways, people are taking to social media to honor the day. From celebrities to politicians and more, it’s beautiful seeing the outpouring of support.

Janelle Monáe, who recently wowed us with a bisexual anthem, praised black girl magic.

Ellen DeGeneres talked about the Time’s Up movement. No more discrimination.

Politician Tammy Duckworth thanked all the women worldwide working hard.

Geri Halliwell posted a picture of herself with a lion and a moving caption.

Hillary Clinton made a whole thread of the women who inspire her.

Including athletes.

And women leading political movements.

British band Little Mix celebrated the day with a girl power mix.

They also reflected on how far they’ve come and the support of their fans.

At an event, NME asked singer Troye Sivan about the women who inspire him most. He had the perfect answer. Laverne Cox, as a trans woman, for how prolific she is in her work. He also mentioned the women of the Me Too movement. Perhaps most heartwarming, he said all the women in the world working three jobs, or going after their dreams, or taking care of people.

And then, of course, there’s Billy Eichner.

Here’s to all the women of the world!
