From Madhuri Dixit Nene to Shilpa Shetty Kundra and Karan Johar, a slew of Bollywood celebrities on Sunday took to social media to express their love for the women out there.
"She is strong...She is fierce. She is bold and beautiful. She is a mother, sister and support system to her family. Wishing all the wonderful women around the world a very #HappyWomensDay," Madhuri tweeted.
Actress Shilpa Shetty Kundra emphasised on a woman's right to equality.
She wrote: "Much like the two parallel lines in an '=' ( EQUAL) sign, all we ask for is to be considered at par in all that we do. To be given a chance at life and not be killed in the womb. To receive education like our brothers do. To feel safe in our own homes, societies, and countries.
"To have our ambitions, dreams, and goals be given due importance. To be accorded equal opportunities and not be held back from progressing in our chosen paths. To be paid equally like all our counterparts when the input is equal."
Shilpa added: "A woman's right to equality has been understated for centuries. Let's come together and make it an Egalitarian society, so our current and future generations can experience 'equality' in reality by pledging to be #EachForEqual. Let's be the change we wish to see.#WomensDay."
Wishing everyone a happy Women's Day, Bipasha spoke about the challenges women go through in their life.
"Strong Women aren't simply born. We are forged through the challenges of life. With each challenge we grow mentally and emotionally. We move forward with our head held high and a strength that cannot be denied. A woman who's been through the storm and survived??? We are all warriors... Happy International Women's Day," Bipasha posted on Instagram.
