Women are owning the narrative and making their voices heard. For this year's International Women's Day, women across the world connected on various platforms and echoed their message loud and clear as they encouraged one another to commit to breaking the bias.
Thousands of women are breaking the bias in many different ways. Some are vocal, speaking up for what they believe in, while others choose a more subtle approach by changing the "norms" at home, at work and in their communities. Here are some ways women have chosen to break the bias:
By not allowing themselves to be defined by others. "It starts with being unapologetically yourself," -Jessica Chastain.
By sharing their stories. "We need to get women talking because there is so much going on in our lives that we don't talk about," -Lena Dunham.
By calling out inequality and speaking up for themselves. "It's up to us as women to speak up for ourselves and for our colleagues," -Diane Kruger.
By standing together, creating movements, and supporting each other. "If you have an idea or something that you want to share or do, do it, and don't let anybody stop you," - Katie Holmes.
