I am beyond grateful to be surrounded by them every single day. And just in case no one told you, you are capable of so many amazing things! 💕”

Jameela Jamil was among celebs to post, as well, writing: “Just a reminder that it is not your job to be thin, to look young forever, to dress any certain way, to be likable, to be approved of or even to be believed.

“We are allowed to age, to fail, to struggle, to be unfriendly, to fall, to get back up in our own way, in our own time. We are allowed to be selfish and cut throat. We don’t have to look after everyone. We are allowed to be tired, we are allowed to look tired. We are allowed to be fed up, we are allowed to let people know when we are fed up. We are allowed to be weird. We are actually sometimes even more fun when we get weird.

“Happy international women’s day to everyone, especially my fellow grumpy b***hes who are sick of this s**t. Lol. 💪🏽”

Canadian YouTuber and TV star Lilly Singh then said Happy IWD to all her “sisters out there”, with her message including: “WOMEN ARE EPIC. WE GET THE JOB DONE. WE BREAK BARRIERS. WE LOOK BOMB AF WHILE DOING IT. WE CREATE. WE PROBLEM SOLVE. WE TOUGH IT OUT. GOD DAMN I’M SO HAPPY I’M A WOMAN 💪🏽”

Singh shared a video she made years ago with the caption:
