Hillary Clinton, shown here in 1969 just after she graduated from college, is without a doubt one of many women who inspire us everyday.
It’s International Women’s Day! Which means that today we’re celebrating the many achievements, both big and small, of women across the globe.
This day originally started as a protest against women’s oppression and inequality. New York City women were outraged by the daily injustices that they faced and on March 8, 1908, thousands of them marched through the streets demanding shorter hours, better pay, and voting rights.
Tomorrow is International Women’s Day! We usually celebrate women everyday by hanging out with the coolest ones we know (read: the majority of the Birchbox staff), but truth be told, it’s a holiday we don’t always pay enough attention. This year is different though and we’re excited to celebrate in style with red lipstick.
A new movement called #RockTheLips is trying to get one million women to wear red lipstick tomorrow to bring more attention to the holiday. As if we needed a reason to paint our pouts crimson! Join our office and many other inspiring women (including Christy Turlington) and wear your favorite red lipstick (or gloss, or stain). We’ll be sharing pictures on our Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and Pinterest all day tomorrow.
Visit RockTheLips Facebook Page to join the movement now and share with all the amazing women in your life. Then, tweet a picture of you in your red lips to @RockTheLips with the hashtag #RockTheLips. If you cc @birchbox, we’ll add your picture to our Pinterest board!
Find our favorite red lipsticks in the Birchbox Shop including Exude and Beauty is Life!
