Women Supporting Women – Irish stars take part in new female empowerment challenge

The stars are posting black and white images in the new Instagram challenge


Top Irish stars are participating in a new Instagram challenge about female empowerment and solidarity.

The Women Supporting Women movement involves posting a black and white photo of yourself, and nominating other women to join in on the viral trend with the hashtags #challengeaccepted and #womensupportingwomen.

Rosie Connolly, Bonnie Ryan, Amy Huberman, Laura Whitmore  and Una Healy are just some of the Irish celebs who have taken part in the challenge.

Rosie Connolly wrote: “Thankful for so many inspiring, encouraging and supportive women in my life ❤️ when women support women, that’s when the real magic happens????”

Bonnie Ryan also shared her appreciation for the movement, writing: “Women who support and build other women are my favourite ❤️”

Aoibhin Garrihy participated in the campaign, taking it one step further by donating to the charity Women’s Aid – which supports women affected by domestic abuse.

Meanwhile, Kathryn Thomas encouraged her followers to “believe in their capabilities and to be and do whatever the hell they want.”

CHALLENGE ACCEPTED. Last time I went cliff jumping I was 21. This was me yesterday at 41. ???? Life, for me has always been about taking that leap of faith, trusting your instincts even when you feel afraid. I’ve always had amazing women in my life who have encouraged me to be me. I’ve also had amazing women in my life who’ve talked me down off the ledge from time to time @toniahk ????And I hope I’ve encouraged the women in my life conversations we’ve had over the years to believe in their capabilities to be and do whatever the hell they want.. I love women. We are incredible but I love #womensupportingwomen even more. Thank you for the nominations @linthomasla @thaliaheffernan @dearbhlamakeupartist @heidihiggins @bronwynconroy
