#SheInspiresMe shines light on inspiring women

Marking International Women’s Day this week, a Twitter campaign and emoji highlights its most influential women.

Women and allies around the world are joining together on Twitter to share their experiences, challenges and successes. They share the changes they want to see, foster dialogue and debate, and celebrate their accomplishments, while also acknowledging progress that remains ahead.
