Women’s History Month is underway and some of the most influential female entertainers have taken to social media to show out with the #WomenDancingTogether challenge.
Oscar-winning costume designer Ruth Carter (“Black Panther”) took to Instagram on Monday to kick off the new empowering challenge. In her video, she sets the mood with Beyonce’s “Who Run the World (Girls),” and nominates Halle Berry, Gabrielle Union, Angela Bassett and more to partake in 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 favorite 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.”
Halle joined by rocking 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,” she wrote. “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! @ciara @kellyrowland @reesewitherspoon I wanna see what you got!! @destinyschild @rikerbrothers #WomenDancingTogether.”
