Who run the world? Girls!

With Women’s History Month underway, Oscar-winning “Black Panther” costume designer Ruth Carter took to Instagram on Monday to kick off a new female empowering challenge, #WomenDancingTogether. In her video, Carter dances along to Beyonce’s “Who Run the World (Girls)”, and nominates Halle Berry, Gabrielle Union, Angela Bassett and more to do the challenge.

“Ladies! Let’s have some fun for the rest of #WomensHistoryMonth and show the world when women unite anything is possible,” she says in her clip. “I nominate @halleberry @gabunion @im.angelabassett @tasha4realsmith @lupitanyongo and @juneambrose to upload a video dancing and/or lip syncing to your favourite Women’s Empowerment Song. Use this same caption and nominate three women who inspire you to keep it going and don’t forget to use the hashtag #WomenDancingTogether @beyonce.”

Berry epicly joined in, shaking her hips to Destiny’s Child’s “Survivor”.

“Thank you @therealruthecarter for challenging me this #WomensHistoryMonth to dance like I damn well please. This one goes out to the incredible female survivors I have encountered in my life, the women who have the tenacity to live on their own terms. The ones who take risks, hustle hard and will stop at nothing to provide the best life for themselves and the people they love. Let’s keep this going!”

Union also took on the challenge, and brought her baby, Kaavia, along for the ride. She also nominated Chrissy Teigen, Jessica Alba and Tracee Ellis Ross.

Thank you @therealruthecarter for starting this challenge to finish out #WomensHistoryMonth in a fun way while showing the world anything is possible when women unite! So I stretched my hips and accepted this challenge of singing, dancing, and lip syncing to my favorite female empowerment song! We have all been through something in this life. We've all fallen and didn't want to get up. We've had our hearts broken. We've all experienced failures. All women share these common truths and we can ALL rise when we stick together and uplift each other. Let's keep this going and laugh and have fun along the way. I nominate @chrissyteigen @jessicaalba and @traceeellisross to keep this challenge going! 🎵 @therealmaryjblige #WomenDancingTogether #WomenDancingTogetherChallenge
