Who are the women who helped you become the badass lady you are today? Surely a few amazing mentors, friends, and role models come to mind. Maybe it was your 7th grade writing teacher, or your soccer coach, or a manager at work who opened a door for you that you never thought you’d be able to walk through. The fact is, when women support each other, we’re unstoppable — and that’s the sentiment behind a new campaign from Lean In called “Together Women Can.”

The campaign kicked off with this inspiring video featuring some of our favorite celebrities thanking the women who helped them on their path and discussing the importance of sticking together and supporting each other:

So inspiring, right?

Emma Watson posted the video on her Instagram, along with the caption, “When women support each other, we accomplish amazing things. Celebrate the women who #LeanInTogether with you.” Other celebrities, including Kate Bosworth, Victoria Beckham, and Selena Gomez, also took to Instagram to share their own #LeanInTogether photos and stories

Our favorite #LeanInTogether posts so far came from Blake Lively, who posted an amazing photo of her reunion with her Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants costars; Alicia Keys, who gave a shout out to her best friend; and Christina Aguilera, who shared a sweet tribute to her mom.

Use the tag #LeanInTogether to give a shoutout to the women who helped you, and then go out and help another woman, in any way you can. We’re powerful as individuals, but together, as a sisterhood, we’ve got superpowers. Let’s use them for good.
