Whether striking or working, these women speak out for each other today

On International Women's Day (March 8), women around the globe are taking the day off from paid and unpaid labor to honor A Day Without a Woman, an international strike in support of women's rights. Women in the public eye have been using their platforms to show solidarity with the movement, from directing support to women's health programs to simply turning their whole social media presence red.

Here's how the women who make the entertainment landscape so vital have been honoring International Women's Day.


True to form, Adele celebrated International Women's Day with a quip about the overwhelming competence women have to demonstrate to be taken seriously.


Sia urged fans to resist with an animation soundtracked by her new song with Brooke Candy, "Living Out Loud."


Hot off the announcement of her second album, Halsey took a moment to support Planned Parenthood, whose women's health services are under attack from the current U.S. presidential administration.
