Amazing females that NEED to be on your radar
Today is International Women's Day, and the theme this year is #PressForProgress...
Progress towards LOTS of things: Equal pay between genders, unity between genders, mutual respect between genders and so much more.
Women across the world continuously contribute to the social, economic, cultural and political achievements that we see in society but they aren't always given the praise they deserve, that's where we come in...
The British model and activist is keen to get across her views on equality and feminism and believes all females should feel appreciated and amazing - rightly so. She started the Instagram page @GurlsTalk which she calls a 'space for girls to share and listen without judgement or stigma'.
No doubt you've heard of the successful plus-size model, but Ashley is sick of being known for just that. She puts a lot of energy into making other young women feel comfortable in their skin no matter their body type and looks incredible doing it!
You might not recognise her name or face but Tarana is the woman behind the #MeToo movement. She has some really inspiring things to say about sexual harassment and empowering women of colour and has been talking about it for the last 10 years.
Millie Bobby Brown
She may be young but that doesn't mean anything - there are huge things expected from Millie this year. If you're a fan of Stranger Things, you'll know that the star has been tipped for some big parts and is a great talent at such a young age, not just acting!
Not only did she continue to play (and win) tennis whilst she was pregnant but she has taken quite a lot of stick in recent months but continues to come back stronger. She's taking some time off in 2018 but no doubt she'll continue to literally smash it when she makes her comeback.
Following her powerful speech at the Golden Globes, Oprah is now tipped to run for the 2020 Presidency. Whilst she is yet to confirm it, and she doesn't call herself a feminist, she has empowered girls and women all over the world for years and continues to do so. She even runs her own Leadership Academy for Girls!
The actress continues to raise awareness of gender equality and isn't afraid of getting her opinion across on the big issues, especially sexual harassment. Have you seen her HeForShe campaign?
Of course, there are plenty of amazing women that need celebrating and appreciating for everything they do and that's what makes International Women's Day so great.
Sometimes being a woman isn't easy, so stay strong and support all the incredible things they do!
