Celebrating women should be an everyday occasion, but there's no better reason than International Women's Day. On March 8, 2024, the 114th iteration of this holiday, people around the world will honor how far women have come (and have yet to go). The origin of the holiday dates back to 1908, when women workers in the needle trades marched through New York City's Lower East Side to protest child labor and sweatshop working conditions and demand women's suffrage. To this day, the holiday is one for activism and the push to recognize women's rights.
It's always been important to be vocal about the causes that matter to us, and social media has made it easier than ever to communicate how we feel about the world around us. So whether you're posting about the women you love, singling out the ones you admire, or highlighting the women-owned businesses you love to shop, we've gathered the 64 best Instagram captions to help you celebrate International Women's Day any way you see fit.
