International Women’s Day: Why We Celebrate Women

International Women’s Day: Why We Celebrate Women

Today is International Women’s Day, a day to celebrate the social, economic, cultural, and political achievements of women everywhere.

So, we’d like to pay tribute to the women behind the lens — and also the women whose stories they tell. 

The women featured here — Bonnie Chiu of Lensational, Gina LeVay, Barbara Kinney and Delphine Diallo — are just a few shining examples of how photography and storytelling can help forge a more inclusive, gender-equal world.

Dedicated to shedding light on women’s achievements, Bonnie Chiu, Founder of Lensational, shares the story of marginalized women who are using cameras to raise their voices and express themselves.

These are stories about female resilience, stories about confidence, stories about leadership, and stories about strength. Join us in celebrating these stories and their storytellers on International Women’s Day, and every day.
