Guess how I first knew today was International Women’s Day? Spotify. They had all these amazing playlists put together featuring the best women in Pop, R&B, Hip Hop & Indie (cannot wait to go through them all). But yes today is International Women’s Day, previously known as International Working Women’s Day. Depending on where you’re from, this day celebrates quite a celebration of women across quite a spectrum, from political & social-economic accomplishments to a day of respect, admiration & love for women everywhere.
Irregardless of what some people may say, women do still suffer from prejudice and hardship, both here in the UK and elsewhere in the world. Granted women have come such a long way from the days of Suffragettes, but there is still room for growth and better equality. In in the spirit of that, let’s see what some brands have had to say in honour of women via Twitter.

I think the winner this time is Sugarscape, followed by Design Museum, River Island & Selfridges. Also Ricky Gervais gets a special mention because of his gem of a tweet below.
It’s #InternationalWomensDay. Don’t embarrass yourself by asking why there’s no international men’s day. There is. Nov 19th. You’re welcome.
