International Women’s Day: the Round Up

International Women’s Day : The Round Up

Yesterday marked the 118th anniversary of International Women’s Day, a day dedicated to the celebration of women everywhere, how far we’ve come and sadly, how far we have to go.

There seemed to be a notable increase in support this year, with many galvanised by the success of the recent Time’s Up movement which swept across the globe at the beginning of the year. News outlets, social media and celebrities alike joined in, championing and celebrating the successes of empowered women everywhere, supporting the mood of the moment that suggests real change is in the air.

At Mio HQ we found the widespread coverage and celebration of International Women’s Day to be nothing short of inspiring, confirming just how powerful, inspirational and amazing women really are, so to help spread the good vibrations, we’ve collated some of our favourite images from the day which left us feeling empowered and excited by the impactful, incredible work that’s happening!

Dazed Magazine gets political and draws attention to the worthy plight of the incredibly strong Kurdish women fighting for freedom against ISIS.


The teen icon and actress Millie Bobby Brown highlights some of the women who inspire her every day. At just 14 years old, she’s educating the legion of young women who follow her on the her-story of years gone by.

Michelle Obama, former First Lady, lawyer and advocate for women’s rights teams up with Refinery29 to discuss the incredible work she is doing through the Obama foundation to empower and advance women across the world.

Galdemzine takes a look at some of the forgotten figures who pioneered the advancement of Women’s rights in Britain including Sophia Duleep Singh. They also nod to the incredible Frida Kahlo exhibition currently showing at the V&A which is definitely worth a visit!

ID Magazine talks to some of the fiercest models of the moment and talks being female in fashion. Expect inspiring words from the likes of Adwoa Aboah and Doutzen.
