The last past years, GRL PWR has been booming all over the world. Women stood up for themselves and raised their voice – but, we’re not there yet, tho -. Today is International Women’s Day, a day to celebrate women and everything they represent. As a company with some pretty strong power women, today’s a big day for WE LIKE YOU. We searched for the best social media posts related to femininity and WE. ARE. HERE. FOR. IT. So sit down and stay cause it’s #InternationalWomensDay.
#1 – Charlie
Classic Charlie. Charlie Magazine is the true definition of girl power, making us proud to be a woman. Their International Women’s Day Facebook post contained a bingo game with some relatable, hilarious and stereotypical boxes to cross off. Our favorite: “A man on Twitter: And when is it Men’s Day?”, ha ha get outta here. We love the “mocking” attitude because some things are, indeed, so obvious. Which one is your fav?
#2 – McDonalds
We must admit this is a pretty cool move from McDonalds. Patricia Williams, who owns a franchise in the US, flipped her restaurant’s sign, switching from the infamous “M” to a “W” which stands for “Women”. Speaking of a boss ass lady.
Today, we flip our Golden Arches to celebrate the women who have chosen McDonald’s to be a part of their story, like the Williams family. In the U.S. we’re proud to share that 6 out of 10 restaurant managers are women. https://t.co/6z88OhjXpO pic.twitter.com/hXfOi3wWQf

#3 – Ladies At The Movies
Because there is, indeed, a Wonder Woman in each and every one of us. Our client “Ladies at the Movies” shared an amazing post, supporting all the strong women out there. BAM!
#4 – Barbie
With IWD coming up, Barbie introduced their new line called “Inspiring Women”. The dolls are a tribute to fourteen historical and contemporary female role models. A great initiative, because young girls are our future and raising them with the thought they came become anything they want to be, is key.
With 86% of US moms worried about the type of role models their daughters are exposed to, we are committed to shining a light on empowering female role models in an effort to inspire more girls. Join us by sharing your role models using #MoreRoleModels. #IWD2018 #HélèneDarroze #NicolaAdamsObe #ChloeKim #FridaKahlo #IbtihajMuhammad #KatherineJohnson #GabbyDouglas
#5 – Serena Williams
Sportswoman Serena Williams is, for many girls and women, a great example. As a go-getter, she doesn’t let anyone bring her down and she says it beautifully in this short, inspirational video: “There is no wrong way to be a woman!”.
#6 – Facebook
IWD was the day Facebook stepped up their business game. Yes, we’re talking about the Community Finder tool voor the #SheMeansBusiness program. It’s meant to connect female entrepreneurs and women-owned business in multiple countries. The purpose? Help professional women share advice and resources in order to develop their businesses. GRL PWR? Definitely.
