Today is International Women's Day, a global celebration of the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women. I wanted to honor this day by sharing some of my favorite photographs I've taken over the last 18 months of women all over the world. Some of these women I know, while others were strangers who caught my eye. They live on four continents and reflect the diversity, beauty, creativity, resilience, strength, and intelligence of women.
And while I celebrate these women, International Women's Day is also a call to action for accelerating gender parity in the United States and around the world.
