Celebrities around the world are celebrating International Women’s Day and are not only wearing red in solidarity, but are speaking out about women equality.
The international observance is to celebrate the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women and to collectively fight for gender parity, something that women in Hollywood are constantly fighting.
A red-wearing Kerry Washington, a woman who regularly speaks on human rights, tweeted that she is standing in solidarity with her sisters.
Serena Williams posted a photo on Instagram holding a sign that reads: “#StrengthHasNoGender. She captioned the photo: “Proud to celebrate #InternationalWomensDay with @Brawnybrand by honoring those who continue to break down barriers #StrengthHasNoGender.”

Tracee Ellis Ross shared a photo on Instagram, wearing a shirt that reads: “Women’s rights are human rights.”
Rashida Jones posted a message on Instagram to not only confirm her participation in IWD, but to blast the critics with “simplest comments” complaining about “celebrities and their privilege.”
“Today is International Women’s Day. There is an initiative to wear red, not to spend money, not to go to work, to do what you can to remind the world how essential women are. If you can’t do any of these things, if your life prohibits you from doing so, don’t. If you want to support the initiative in your own way, you can. If you don’t care, then keep it moving. I’m done with overly simplistic comments from people who are looking to complain about celebrities and their privilege. I’m aware of my privilege and that doesn’t make me care any less. Let’s remember that a reality star born into wealth is now President. (Also, a man who bragged about sexually assaulting women) Some of you complaining voted for him. So there is a disconnect. In any event, women all over the world, including this country, are struggling for equality. I stand with them.”
Adele wrote on Instagram: “Whatever women do they must do twice as well as men to be thought half as good. Luckily, this is not difficult.”
To all the women • the black, indigenous, poor, brown, trans, thick, fat, juicy, queer, disabled, unhomed, femme, undocumented, emerging, invisibilized, extinguished and agi-f*cking-tated. On this #InternationalWomensDay, I struggle alongside you for recognition, freedom, safety, love and unequivocal access to all things we need to survive and thrive, including vital resources like @plannedparenthood. #istandwithpp
