Happy International Women's Day.
The annual event took social media by storm using a plethora of hashtags all over the world including #IWD2015, #Internationalwomensday, #womensday, #womensday2015, #Happywomensday and more.
As a result, brands had a hard time getting their message out - however, that message remained consistent - it is time for change and for women’s contribution to society to be fairly acknowledged and respected.
Following the industry’s top women sharing with The Drum who inspired them the most, we searched for the best brand participation on social media.
