We’re look­ing for­ward to In­ter­na­tional Women’s Day and cel­e­brat­ing the girl­friends who have in­spired us most. Group hug, guys!

Look (UK) - - FIRST LOOK -

Re­mem­ber when you thought 2015 was bad? Then Trump rolled into 2016, talk­ing about ‘pussy grab­bing’, tak­ing of­fice and plan­ning to cut vi­tal fund­ing for women. On this side of the pond, we bat­tled against em­ploy­ers forc­ing us into heels and those Ir­ish abor­tion laws.

But Fe­bru­ary’s Women’s March buoyed us (100,000 took to Lon­don’s streets to protest) and this year we’re go­ing to use In­ter­na­tional Women’s Day on 8 March to stand up and roar: ‘I’m proud to be a woman.’ We’re still un­der­rep­re­sented, un­der­paid and fight­ing to be heard.

And while we’re not a lost cause – we wel­come the gov­ern­ment’s April plans to di­min­ish the gen­der pay gap – we should be say­ing what we think, when and how we want. With that in mind, Look in­tends to make IWD the best ever – by re­veal­ing who in­spires us. Haven’t joined in yet? Find #Shoutout­to­mybest on In­sta­gram to see how Look, Look Influencers and you guys can help spread the love. Please us know who most in­spires you @Look­magazine to get a spe­cial shout-out of your very own. Happy IWD!
