Women all over the world are celebrating International Women’s Day today. Many are taking to social media to post pictures of fearless and inspiring women in history, while others are posting pictures of the women who matter most in their lives. Fearless lady Katie Holmes honored the two most important women in her life with a gorgeous photo and beautiful caption she posted to Instagram.

And it’s exactly what International Women’s Day is all about.

“My beautiful mom who inspires me everyday and my magical daughter who I am so very proud of,” she wrote. “I celebrate all women today and everyday!!!!!! #weruntheworld #internationalwomensday 💪❤️🎀💕💃🏻💪❤️🎀💋💃🏻”

The important takeaway from International Women’s day is that women are valuable and essential contributors to society, the economy, and all other aspects of life. And not just today — every single day. Women’s rights are equally as important as men’s rights, and it’s absolutely crazy that anyone would disagree.

Women deserve a more inclusive, gender equal world.

We are dangerously marginalized in so many countries throughout the world (including the United States of America), which is why it’s so important to bring awareness to the absolute need for complete equality.

The theme of International Women’s Day is #BeBoldForChange. The International Women’s Day organizers listed five areas for supporters to focus on you to make a change: challenge bias and inequality, campaign against violence, forge women’s advancement, celebrate women’s achievement and champion women’s education.

Of course, you can be bold today and every day however you choose. It’s all about spreading positivity, awareness and love.
