How inspiring! Everyone from politicians to musicians to actors are joining in the conversation on Aug. 26, as the world celebrates Women’s Equality Day. Click here to see their tweets all about empowering women and shattering that glass ceiling we know we can break!
Hillary Clinton, Lauren Conrad, President Barack Obama and more celebrities are taking to Twitter to share strong messages about women’s rights on Aug. 26, Women’s Equality Day — a day that marks a very special moment in history. “On this day in 1920, the 19th Amendment was adopted and many women won the right to vote. Let’s break more ceilings,” the Democratic presidential nominee tweeted. Hillary followed that tweet up with one that featured a video full of clips of Donald Trump‘s offensive remarks about women that she captioned, “Happy #WomensEqualityDay from @realDonaldTrump.” SHOTS FIRED, FOR A GOOD CAUSE!
Lauren tweeted a photo of herself and a few other lovely ladies, captioning the tweet, “Happy #WomensEqualityDay! These women never cease to amaze me…” The star was standing next to women from The Little Market, an organization she runs, “in an effort to empower female artisans throughout the world and to provide them with meaningful opportunities,” according to her blog. What a wonderful cause!
Barack chimed in by tweeting a picture of a quote of his on equal pay and reproductive rights for women. “Speaking up is the first step. Let’s build on our progress one conversation at a time. #WomensEqualityDay,” he captioned the tweet. There is no reason men should not be part of this conversation, and we couldn’t be prouder of our president for speaking up for women who are still being under paid and under appreciated.
We are so glad to see that so many celebrities took the time to voice their opinions and inspire female empowerment on Women’s Equality Day. The more voices speaking out, the better! And if enough people are heard, the better the chances are that things will soon be changing. Here’s to all the women everywhere! Let’s hear it for the girls!
