Ruby Rose et al have a message for you.


Published:

Happy International Women's Day, you glorious human. To celebrate this annual day of female empowerment, lesbian and bisexual celebs, politicans and influencers have taken to social media, sharing quotes, clips and personal messages. Here's what 10 of our favourite feminists had to say for themselves.

 

1. Ruby Rose, actress and activist

 

2. Nicola Adams, Olympic boxing champ

 

3. Lucy Spraggan, singer

 

4. Angela Eagle, politican

 

5. Justine Greening, politican

 

6. Jessica Origliasso, pop star

 

7. Victoria Broom, star of Different For Girls

 

8. Amelia-Eve Warden, CEO of P&C PR

"It's never been harder to feel accepted and recognised than it is now. Women have been placed into communities, careers and categories of what society feels is right for decades, and until now, we have pushed these boundaries; destroyed them even. We have the ability to merge something so simple into something beautiful. If you ever feel that you need to explain who you are and what you are doing, we are women, and that is enough."

 

9. Stella Duffy, writer and theatremaker

 

10. Evan Rachel Wood, actress and bi visibility activist
