Celebrities Take Over Social Media With Powerful Messages On International Women's Day

✊ ✊ ✊ ✊ ✊

Every March, people around the world celebrate the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women as they remember the fight for women’s rights.

Seeing as 2017 has paid witness to seemingly unprecedented celebrity engagement in the political sphere, it’s no surprise that stars showed their support for International Women’s Day on Wednesday with heartfelt tributes to women in their lives and messages of solidarity.

This year, many are also honoring the spirit of International Women’s Day by participating in a strike, “Day Without a Woman.” Borne out of the Women’s March in January that rallied millions across the globe in response to President Donald Trump’s inauguration, the event encourages women to refrain from paid or unpaid work.

Below, behold the nasty women (and men) who took to social media to honor the power of women everywhere. Keep checking throughout the day as we add more celebrity reactions. 

Happy #InternationalWomensDay to these beautiful ladies love you lots Gx
