March 8, 2019 is International Women's Day.
It's the perfect time to recognize just how lost the world would be without women. Imagine a world without windshield wipers (thanks, Mary Anderson and Charlotte Bridgwood), circular saws (thanks, Tabitha Babbitt) and the Captain Marvel we know today (thanks Kelly Sue DeConnick and Brie Larson).
To give women a well-deserved shout out, companies like Apple, leaders like Barack Obama and entertainers like Little Mix took to social media.
"Apple has partnered with Scottish singer-songwriter and social activist Annie Lennox, and her NGO The Circle, to create a short video highlighting the progress around women's rights and the long way we still have to go, on International Women's Day."
My dream for International Women’s Day... that sometime in the future it will be held in a week during which we are NOT investigating yet another death of a woman apparently the hands of her former or current partner.— Annabel Crabb (@annabelcrabb) March 6, 2019
On International Women’s Day, we honor women worldwide for their vital role in shaping and strengthening our communities, families, governments, and businesses...https://t.co/VVnkuBPmhA— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) March 8, 2019
Happy International Women’s Day. Here is a clip to remind you to protect yourself and protect each other, because we are still under attack. And to any man watching this, if you’re not oppressing, hurting or shaming any of us, and you’re an ally, then this clip isn’t about you.❤️ pic.twitter.com/0dWACJYoAu— Jameela Jamil (@jameelajamil) March 8, 2019
