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.”


Exclusive: ‘The Oath’s Cory Hardrict, Kwame Patterson Recall Being Harassed By Cops



If you want to take an emotional, entertaining and dangerous ride through the corrupt land of law enforcement, then we suggest you tune in for The Oath.  

Delivering a unique perspective on what it means to wear the color blue, the show follows a group of police officers and their lives with badges on and off.

“With being a cop in the workforce, especially being an African American cop, when we step out there, we always want to do the right thing,” Cory Hardrict told HipHollywood. “The crazy thing about this show is we have another life as well outside of the cop world where things aren’t so perfect.”

Cory, who is expecting a baby girl very soon with his wife, Tia Mowry, continued, “When the badge comes off and we have on regular civilian clothes, we get treated like every African American harassed person out here in the world.”

Although this is just a television show, the narrative is not exactly a far cry from reality, a reality Cory Hardrict and Kwame Patterson personally know all too well. “I had one incident where he [the officer] took his blade and went to the back seat cut the back seat and sliced it … but you can’t do anything.”

Patterson added, “I’m from Baltimore, so Baltimore is one of the most corrupt police cities in the United States. So I’ve definitely dealt with police brutality, discrimination … it’s always my word against theirs.”

The new show, produced by 50 Cent, is now streaming on Crackle.
