“Scandal” star Kerry Washington and other stars including Pink, mark International Women’s Day. Hillary and Chelsea Clinton’s #NotThere initiative sheds light on the inequality that still exists.
Cameron Diaz, Kristin Chenoweth, and Victoria Beckham are among the stars who posted messages on social media in honor of International Women’s Day. #HappyWomensDay, #InternationalWomensDay and #IWD2015 are trending on Twitter.
The mission statement from the Clinton Foundation and the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation says, “On International Women’s Day, the world woke up to find that many women were not there. This symbolic act reflected what a new analysis of women and girls’ progress says about the state of gender equality: we’re NOT THERE yet.” The program is a part of the “No Ceilings: Full Participation Project.”
