International Women’s Day 2017: Be Bold for Change

Today, 4 months to the day of the U.S. election, marks International Women’s Day, a global celebration of women’s achievements. While this day is always met with fierce support, now more than ever does its existence and message seem necessary.


In a world where nation’s mouthpieces and cowardly members of society don’t advocate for or respect women, International Women’s Day ignites a call to action for gender parity. This year’s theme, Be Bold For Change, calls upon women, men, and non-binary individuals to stand together and insist upon a more gender inclusive and diverse world. We’re more inspired than ever to raise awareness and take action for gender inclusivity in part thanks to these creative works. Here’s how designers and illustrators are celebrating women on Instagram today.
