A few days ago, we celebrated the annual International Women's Day.

This year was all about the importance of equality...

The International Women's Day organization is keen to see change happen...official website wrote.
Of course, we have the Suffragettes to thank for the current equality women have...
via: Getty ImagesIn the early 20th century, many Suffragettes died protesting a woman's right to vote in the U.K, and if it wasn't for them, things may be very different today.
But it's no secret that many women still fight for equality to this very day...
Not only do many women in this industry get paid much less than their male colleagues...
via: Getty ImagesBut many have also fallen victims to sexual harassment and assault behind the scenes.
This topic is a huge concern for women...
via: Getty ImagesCNBC ran a survey and found that workers in front and behind the camera agree that discrimination and harassment remain top of mind for many women across the industry.
But the majority of women feel too frightened to report this toxic behavior...
via: Getty ImagesIt was also found that while many were witnesses to this bad behavior, very few felt comfortable enough to report it.
The Harvey Weinstein trial is a prime example of this...
via: Getty ImagesIn 2017, allegations of sexual abuse and harassment publically came out about the Hollywood director from actresses such as Rose McGowan and Ashley Judd.
More and more women from the entertainment industry eventually came out accusing the disgraced director of assault and abuse...
via: Getty ImagesAnd earlier this month, Weinstein was found guilty of rape - the counts are one count of rape in the first degree, one count of rape in the third degree, one count of a criminal sexual act in the first degree, and 2 counts of predatory sexual assault.
Even though justice has been served...
But thanks to the brave women who stood up against Weinstein...
And, of course, International Women's Day is the perfect day to celebrate this.
