The Scoop: People from all over the world celebrate the annual remembrance of gender equality. Some even posted inspiring and touching tweets to mark the day that, in the end, man and woman are equals.
March 8 is the day to celebrate International Women’s Day. The time where women commemorate the time where they finally made a stand for themselves. This frees them from the constant oppression and inequality that women experienced in the past.
Women are also human, they have their own feelings and their own mind. Therefore, being able to be free from the prison of stereotypes and assumptions that women sometimes have to go through, is a gift.
To commemorate the courage and determination of ordinary women to do great things, Twitter users shared inspiring tweets for the day with #InternationalWomansDay.
#InternationalWomansDay tomorrow, standing with EVERY woman no matter her race, sexuality or class. every woman deserves equal rights and to be treated the same as men and her fellow women. stop discriminating against each other, we all get shit, stick together x
