As we get closer and closer to 2019's International Women's Day, which falls on Friday, March 8, it's time to start thinking about how you're going to celebrate the strong, empowered women all around you. Whether you do something big or small, it's important to at least acknowledge this day and think about what it really means for women everywhere and equality in general. One way to get a better understanding of what this holiday means to other women is to look on social media, where there are plenty of tweets and memes to share. They'll explain how you feel and allow you to share your thoughts and emotions — and they're all just pretty motivating to read.
It's easy to think that International Women's Day is just about celebrating the women with recognizable names and achievements, but that's not true: it's also about celebrating the strong women around you. Maybe that's your mom, who has done an excellent job of raising you and building a life for your family, maybe it's your older sister, maybe it's your friends who always support you, maybe it's a teacher who made a serious impression on you — it can be anyone.
While it's great to share these memes and tweets on International Women's Day, it's important to remember that these are messages you should be paying attention to all year long, not just on March 8. So, feel free to retweet these or share them on another platform whenever you want! Check out some of our favorites.
