We defy you not to feel proud of the sisterhood after watching this.
One of, if not the best thing, about working at Stylist is using our platforms to champion the remarkable women that have changed our world for the better.
But over the last few years this has become a more exciting mission than ever, as global scandals like the outing of Harvey Weinstein and the creation of the Time’s Up movement have set the women’s movement alight, causing a flood of female figures to step forward and demand to be heard.
In response and in celebration of this, we decided to launch our first ever awards – the Remarkable Women Awards – to highlight just some of the women that we’re most in awe of. You can see the full coverage of the event which happened in March here, and find out why we picked women like Jameela Jamil as our Woman of the Year and Annie Lenox as our Icon of the Year.
But to spread a little more joy, and do a little more shouting, we’ve made a video that picks out some of the most important feminist moments over the last year, as well as featuring some of the women we’ve crowed particularly remarkable.
From Viola Davis’ stirring speech at the 2018 Women’s March, which gave us shivers, to Bryony Gordon’s triumphant marathon run, here’s a little reminder of the brilliant things women have done, said and achieved recently – all of which make us very proud to stand with them and continue to try and be as remarkable as we can.
So take a watch of the video above, and listen to Jodie Whittaker take down those sexist Twitter trolls who can’t get past the idea of a female Doctor Who and Nadiya Hussain explain the pressure of being the “best muslim” on TV.
We hope it makes you laugh, smile and be proud, of all the women furthering the women’s movement in their own special, remarkable way.
