With the birth of the Time's Up and MeToo movements and the continuing fights for equal pay and healthcare rights for women, International Women’s Day this year will, without a doubt, hold more significance than ever. There are lots of ways to support the cause (e.g. donating time and/or money to Planned Parenthood, the ACLU, or Time's Up), attending a march, voting, and calling your congressperson or senator.

Another easy way to bring awareness to women's rights is to dress accordingly. There's no denying the fact that Hollywood's decision show solidarity for Time's Up by wearing black to this year's Golden Globe Awards ceremony made a very strong statement, as did the white roses donned by many attendees of the Grammy Awards. Similarly, the colors you choose to wear—on International Women’s Day especially—undoubtedly will carry an unspoken meaning that’s louder than words.
