International Women's Day 2018: Reese Witherspoon, Harry Styles and more stars celebrate powerful females

Happy International Women's Day! March 8 is all about recognizing the females of the world -- teachers, doctors, CEOs, saleswomen, chefs, students, cashiers, moms, grandmas, sisters and more!

Famous faces are getting in on this excellent day of recognition, whether through something as simple as a tweet or by delivering a speech at the United Nations. The latter was Reese Witherspoon's choice: The do-it-all actress/producer sat down with fellow female leaders to discuss the state of women's rights across the globe.

And it's not just women celebrating each other today! Harry Styles and Chris Hemsworth were among the male stars voicing their support: "Thank you to all the incredible women paving the way," Harry tweeted.

Most of the very best people I know are women, so it seemed pretty impossible to choose a #tbt worthy of…

Happy International Women’s Day!!! I love the community we have built on this page...strong women and men supporting positivity and each other in such a heartwarming way. We need to take this energy even more out into the world...because there is still so much to be done. Did you know that out of the nearly 150 public historical statues in New York City, only five depict female leaders? They're Eleanor Roosevelt, Gertrude Stein, Golda Meir, Harriet Tubman and Joan of Arc. In honor of #internationalwomensday, I'm celebrating the strong, powerful, brave women in all of our lives with my peaceful warrior pose. We're all in this together, and we'll only rise by lifting each other up. I've partnered with @OldNavy to call attention to these these five women and their contributions through their beautiful flower installations today. Join me in celebrating all women and the future generation for being #hipowered, bold and fierce. Who are the women you want to celebrate today? #WeGotThis2018
Its International women's day!!! My resolution this year was to practice more self-care. To read more, write more, eat cleaner, do the crossword puzzle, get out in my community and give back. They say it takes 30 days to make a habit. For the last 30 days, I committed to no dairy, gluten, grains, sugar, fake sweetener, alcohol, and legumes with the @WHOLE30 challenge. I am sleeping better and feeling better. I have zero energy dips throughout the day and I am less moody. I want to keep going and make it whole60. Also, I've gotten out in my community and learned about homelessness, mentored young people coming up in the business, donated to female led causes I care about, and thought about what I can do, even little things, to help those around me. Now, I am thinking about what the next 30 will bring. Stay tuned.
