A whole heap of celebrities, including Julia Roberts, Madonna, and Beyoncé, have signed an open letter advocating for gender equality, and SO. MUCH. YES.

Yesterday (March 8th) saw people all over the world celebrate International Women’s Day, with celebrities and people on the internet sharing tributes and lovely messages, such as Britney Spears who heaped praise upon the likes of Madonna and Beyoncé. What’s more, many women partook in “A Day Without A Woman,” a strike day for women aimed at proving how integral females are to the fabric of society.

On top of that, a whole heap of famous faces have signed an open letter advocating for gender equality!

The letter — which also includes co-signs from Julia Roberts, Madonna, Dakota Johnson, Jada Pinkett Smith, John Legend, Hari Nef, and Freida Pinto — was published by Chime for Change, an organization co-founded by Beyoncé, Salma Hayek, and Gucci, alongside Global Citizen, that aims “to raise funds and awareness for girls’ and women’s empowerment.”

Continuing, the letter goes on to say that “fighting for gender equality is the emergency and the opportunity of our time.”

Read the full letter here (or below).

We couldn’t agree more with these sentiments, and will keep on fighting for equality for all.
