- International Women's Day celebrates the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women around the globe.
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge took to Instagram on Sunday morning to share a post in honor of the day, which celebrates the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women.
Instead of sharing a generic post about the day itself or to feminism in general, however, the couple used the occasion as an opportunity to pay tribute to some of the women who have personally touched their lives during the past year.
Along with a grid of four images, Will and Kate wrote:
"Today is #InternationalWomensDay!
To mark the day we are celebrating some of the remarkable and inspiring women we have met over the last year.
Clockwise from top left:
1. The women of the SOS Children’s Village in Lahore, Pakistan: where staff provide children, deprived of their natural parents, with an environment which is as close as possible to a natural home, along with loving care, security, higher education and job-training.
2. Eileen Fenton MBE: Eileen was the first woman, at the age of 21, to complete the Cross Channel Swimming Race in 1950, and went on to train scores of first-class long distance and sprint swimmers.
3. The incredible staff at Kingston Hospital’s Maternity Unit: their philosophy of care is to ensure women are at the centre of their service.
4. Yvonne Bernstein: Yvonne was a hidden child in France, travelling in the care of her aunt and uncle and frequently changing homes and names — The Duchess photographed Yvonne Bernstein with her granddaughter Chloe earlier this year as part of the commemorations for the 75th anniversary of the end of the Holocaust."
What a beautiful tribute.
