Beyoncé and Others Pen Letter On International Women’s Day

Beyoncé, Julia Roberts, Madonna and more are among a handful of celebrities who penned and signed a letter in support of Global Citizen and Chime For Change on International Women’s Day. The letter is in response to the changing political climate in both America and the world, and emphasizes that “fighting for gender equality is the emergency and the opportunity of our time.” Beyoncé co-founded the Chime For Change foundation in 2013, an organization for “female empowerment,” and has since become one of the most prominent and strongest voices of modern-day feminism.
