Day #617:Happy International Women’s Day From Youtube

March 8 marks International Women’s Day – a yearly celebration of women’s achievements and gender equality. Among a host of events and campaigns in 2015 – including an online discussion with Emma Watson – is this inspiring social media campaign from YouTube, #DearMe. In an effort to ease the hardships of growing up, YouTube is encouraging women to share their wisdom, in the form of a video message to their teenage selves. Each video starts with two words – Dear Me.

In the introduction video, a number of confident, happy young women talk about socializing, body image and self identity, urging younger girls to embrace who they are. The #DearMe hashtag is trending across the web, as thousands of women add their voices to this empowering chorus.

What wisdom would you share with your teenage self?
