It’s International Women’s Day, and prominent figures in the fashion industry are begging the public to take notice. Watch Kendall Jenner, Bella Hadid, Hailey Baldwin and more take a stand and support equality for women everywhere.
62 women in the fashion industry took time out of their busy New York Fashion Week schedules last month to record a powerful message about women’s rights, and W magazine released the compilation, appropriately, on International Women’s Day/A Day Without A Woman, March 8.
In the video, models, designers, editors and more ask viewers to “respect yourself, respect women” because “women’s rights are human rights.” The quote might sound familiar — it comes from a speech Hillary Clinton, 69, made as First Lady in 1995. The participants, which include Kendall Jenner, Bella Hadid, Hailey Baldwin, Sara Sampaio, Donna Karan and plenty more, speak various languages in the clip, as well.
This year, International Women’s Day hold a higher importance than ever, as it’s the perfect opportunity for the U.S. to take a stand against Donald Trump’s objectification of women. Organizers of the Women’s March in January created #ADayWithoutAWoman for March 8, 2017 to demonstrate how valuable women of all backgrounds are in the workplace, and females were urged not to work or shop on this day.
