March 8 is celebrated every year as International Women’s Day. While this is something we should never forget, the day is marked to remember the contribution women make towards the society and also to raise awareness about the issues plaguing them. 

Our Bollywood actresses (and actors like Farhan Akhtar and Amitabh Bachchan) have been quite vocal about their support for women empowerment. They serve as role models for each one of us that it’s possible to break the glass ceiling, and fight for what’s rightfully yours. 

Let’s look at what these women are sharing on their Instagram and Twitter handles.

#love #happiness #freedom #beauty #divinity #energy #conviction #courage 💋 Women can’t be defined generically, even when mentioned collectively!!!😊❤️ To truly celebrate a woman, it’s important to accept all ‘her’ nuanced differences, her innate strength, momentary vulnerabilities & yes strength again!👍 it’s often said, ‘women are complicated’ 😊 well, imagine going through a lifetime of fast paced changes, physically, biologically, emotionally, socially…then realise, just how uncomplicated a ‘woman’ actually makes it all look!!!👏😘❤️ She’s not perfect, but gives it ‘HER’ all, she’s born with a heart of a nurturer, with the ‘Will’ to be a provider. She’s #shakti not for the lack of fear but for owning courage inspite of it!👍 She’s a force of nature, that drives the matter what the role, resilient until the very end!🙏 Dugga Dugga #HappyWomensDay ❤️😊😘 what a privilege to be born a woman!!! With love & kisses, Alisah, Renée & yours truly!!!😉😁💋I love you guys!!!
