In honor of International Women’s Day on Sunday, these same women took to their social media accounts to replace their profile pictures with a faceless avatar.
The gesture, part of the Clinton Foundation’s #NotThere campaign, sought to raise awareness on the state of women’s rights around the world.
In addition to the online movement, the foundation cut women out of about 40 existing advertisements, magazine covers and other media forms, driving attention to a report by the foundation’s No Ceilings initiative, reports The New York Times.
“On International Women’s Day, the world woke up to find that many women were not there. This symbolic act reflected what a new analysis of women and girls’ progress says about the state of gender equality: we’re not there yet,” read a message on the campaign’s site, earning participation from those who would be a familiar face on any other day.
They weren’t the only ones speaking up for International Women’s Day.
