The celebrations for International Women’s Day for 2021 are underway. What better way to show support than social media challenges? International Women’s day is a celebration of the achievements of women all over the globe. It is a way to honor women and their contributions in society – culturally, politically, economically, and socially. The role of women had changed through the decades. In fact, it still continues to change together with the world’s evolving perception of gender dynamics not only in homes but also in other places like the workplace, public governance, and more.
Not many people realize the power of social media and how much it can affect the climate, perception, and overall behavior of societies. In fact, advocacies, activism, and other forms of social movements are much more influential now with social media. It is so much easier to connect with like-minded people who support and advocate for the same ideologies and principles.
The best way to celebrate International Women’s Day 2021 is to join in on campaigns and social media challenges. Here are some of the best social media challenges to join for IWD 2021:

Women should be able to embrace their bodies. They should be able to feel good and confident in their skin. Lately, there are some unwanted reactions to this challenge where editing software and apps are used to reduce the “silhouette effect” to reveal the bodies of participants. These kinds of R-rated reactions about this challenge are exactly the kind of behavior we should push down. #Respect
