Tomorrow, March 8, marks International Women's Day—a global celebration of female power and community. And while we make it part of our mission here at Byrdie HQ to lift women up all year long, there's something particularly special about having a designated holiday to laud and promote the accomplishments of our sisters across the world.
With that in mind, we hope you'll join us and our sister brands in taking the time to recognise some of the special women in your life. Byrdie, Who What Wear, MyDomaine, and Obsessee are brands for women, by women, and will be standing together on International Women's Day to spotlight inspirational women in our local and international communities. To join us, nominate the woman who empowers YOU by using the hashtag #WeAreWomen and tagging them across Instagram. If you've been nominated yourself, pay it forward by tagging someone else and stand together in celebrating strong women everywhere.
"As an entrepreneur, I think it's critical that our business supports and empowers women," says Hillary Kerr, one of our co-founders and chief ideation officer at Clique Media Group. "On March 8, that means we will proudly support International Women's Day to recognise the achievements and contributions of women. I hope that with our #WeAreWomen campaign, our efforts will remind the world that women are stronger together and demand that our voices are heard."
We encourage you to join us in sharing the image above or a photo of your own on your social media feed, along with your nomination and the hashtag #WeAreWomen. Ladies: Let's get in formation.
