As today is International Women’s Day, it’s the most fitting time of the year to scream loud and proud, “I’m every woman, it’s all in me!” And as such, several brands have done just that (in their own words) in order to celebrate the annual March 8 date that honors the many achievements of women including cultural, social and political.
From retailers to designers, see how major firms worldwide paid recognition on social media and more.
