International Women's Day Captions Perfect For Instagram

Jasmyne Jeffery March 7, 2023

March 8 2023 is International Women’s Day and there’s no better way to share your love for your gal pals than posting about them on social media. This year, be ready with a super cute picture and the perfect women’s day Instagram captions to really express how you feel about the women in your life.

March is all about appreciating the women in our lives. In the UK, we have Mother’s Day at the end of the month (don’t panic, America — yours isn’t for another couple of months). But to kick it all off, we have International Women’s Day on March 8! All about celebrating and recognising the role of women in history, it’s also a time to feel empowered and empower those around you. In this day and age, there really is no better way to show your appreciation than through your socials.

Celebrating IWD

Before we get ourselves ready, let’s have a little bit of information about International Women’s Day 2023.

This year, the theme is #EmbraceEquity, fighting for an equal world. Those getting involved have shared pictures of them hugging themselves using the hashtag. More than ever, we should be calling out discrimination, bias and striving for inclusion in all aspects of our lives.

Now, we need to actively embrace that change to make a difference.

International Women’s Day started all the way back in 1911, yet there is still so much work to be done. Since it began, it’s become a national holiday in dozens of countries as campaigning has spread around the world. However, March 8 is just as much about activism as it is about celebration.

Equality across all of the sectors around the world is still far from being achieved. It isn’t down to one country or government, one business or group; it’s down to everyone. Even individuals can make a difference, and that’s why it’s so important to recognise the day, its theme, and strive for equality.
