Here's to women! Today is International Women's Day, and celebrities are taking to social media to show their support. From Instagrams to Tweets, men and women alike are using today as an opportunity to reflect on the incredible achievements of women, and to celebrate the incredible progress made to advance women's equality.
Some of our favorites? Reese Witherspoon's lifestyle site, Draper James, is giving Girls Inc. a shoutout and commending the work they do to help young women be successful, while Ellen DeGeneres is paying homage to all the incredible women—famous and not—who have sat down with the host on her show. But these are just two of the many amazing things celebrities are saying about #InternationalWomensDay on social media—keep reading to see them all.
I love #internationalwomensday ! And who better to celebrate than Daphne Sheldrick! Her life commitment to raising orphaned animals is so awe inspiring. Her strength and determination is boundless. It is an honor to know her and a privilege to help @dswt . Thank you Daphne for inspiring me and so many other people 😘😘😘😘😘😘😘😘
Nowhere on earth do women have as many opportunities as men. Nowhere. But the toughest countries in which to be born a girl are also the poorest, because #PovertyIsSexist. That’s why I spent this #InternationalWomensDay with @ONECampaign meeting with @edmarkey and @senpatroberts asking them to support policies that will help help the girls and women hit hardest by gender inequality. Please join me in calling for action now at ONE.org/letter
