The teen activist reminded her fans and followers that every day is the time to advocate for gender equality.

"Today is #InternationalWomensDay and we recognize that women are still far from equal to men in today's societies. We still have a very long way to go. Those who will suffer the most from the climate- and environmental crisis are the ones who are already the most vulnerable, socially and financially," Thunberg said. "And that tends to be women living in the global south... We can not have climate justice without gender equality. And remember; what we women want today - and every day- is fundamental equal rights, not congratulations or celebrations."

The singer wrote an inspiring message for her fans on Instagram. "Strength and soft, vulnerable and nurturing, confidant and humble, the complete beauty and awesomeness and power of being female. So much is put on us from society, media, ourselves, so many labels. So many expectations to what it means and looks like and feels like to be a woman," she wrote.

"I say keep the labels and let me be the beauitfiul, emotional, insecure perfectly imperfect woman I am. Lets celebrate our sexuality, uniqueness, and let the world try to figure out how to understand it. Happy international woman's day to every woman, mother, sister, daughter, friend, boss, and badass lady out there," Kesha continued. "I want to live in a world and work in an industry where we, the fucking magic women, build each other up instead of compare or compete. I reject that idea and will not entertain it any longer. Women, we are gods and goddesses. We hold the key to humanity. We decide IF we populate the Earth, and if so, with whom. We could just decide not to have any more kids and the human race would be over. Just as a reminder, men. THAT is power. I just really f---ing love being a woman and today is for us, all of us. Celebrate the uncategorizable woman you are."
