It’s International Women’s Day! While we are behind singer Rob Thomas‘s sentiments about the occasion — “Too many women have shaped this world for them to have just a day” (hear, hear!) — we’re still all in when it comes to marking it. So are Hollywood stars, from A to Z.
Social media is the place today for female and male celebrities to recognize and champion women. Females in their families, they work with, they mother, they lost. The touching and inspirational posts run the gamut — inspirational messages (Kathy Griffin), sweet family photos (Kate Hudson) or a full-on family dance party in celebration (Ciara and Russell Wilson, we stan).
Rose McGowan told her followers to “never doubt your power or your worth.”
Shailene Woodley got personal about womanhood — from her shower.
Kathy Griffin reminded her followers they they can do anything they desire if they are “committed and passionate.”
Lena Waithe reminded her followers that her pronouns are “she & her.”
Feminist extraordinaire Emma Watson encouraged all methods of celebration of the day, including “marching, dancing, rising, resisting, protesting, striking [and] uniting.”
Julianne Moore shared a quote from The Big Lebowski: “My art has been commended as being strongly vaginal which bothers some men. The word itself makes some men uncomfortable. Vagina.”
Debra Messing shared … cupcakes.
And a soon-to-be mini feminist — on the way from Amy Schumer.
Indeed, all ages are being represented. See: Courteney Cox’s sweet mama, Madonna’s dancing eldest daughter and more.
Stars showed love for their female colleagues — current and past. (We always love a Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants reunion.)
And others shared memories of inspiring women they lost.
This post, from Ciara, made us want to get up and dance.
And, yes, the Kardashians marked the day as well.
Some of the best posts, however, are ones shared by men, including Lenny Kravitz, David Beckham, Alec Baldwin and Hugh Jackman.
And here are a bunch more posts from other stars:
