Instagram is introducing new stickers illustrated by diverse women around the world, to celebrate International Women’s Day 2021 that will take place on March 8. The Facebook-owned social media company notes that the latest stickers stand in solidarity with frontline workers who assumed responsibilities through the pandemic, with mothers, among many more. The stickers also extend solidarity to women who face discrimination based on race and body types. Instagram brings special stickers and filters to celebrate various occasions. Last year, the company celebrated Diwali with a distinct AR filter called ‘Share Your Light.’
Tara Bedi, Public Policy and Community Outreach Manager at Instagram India, has also shared a post on the platform, showcasing the new stickers. “These stickers stand in solidarity with front line workers who assumed so much responsibility through the pandemic, with mothers, those among the limb disability community, with elderly Asian women who faced racism, and all the communities of support that have sparked joy in the lives of women all over the world,” she stated in the post. Instagram users can find these stickers in the featured section under the Story section.
Notably, Apple has introduced a new Apple Watch challenge to promote International Women’s Day this year. Its International Women’s Day challenge has a virtual trophy and animated stickers on completing it. Additionally, the App Store will feature an App of the Day and Game of the Day from a woman creator while the Apple Arcade will showcase a collection of games starring powerful female characters. The Apple Music is also highlighting women who are leaders in their field, breaking records, topping charts, and inspiring others through their work, advocacy, and influence within pop culture and beyond. Moreover, Apple Books is celebrating everywhere with country-specific collections that feature women’s voices and elevate their contributions to every field.
