Ariana Grande just posted an empowering video to her Twitter which could not be more fitting for International Women's Day.

The Thank U, Next singer posted the video as part of a tweet in which she wrote, "happy international women’s day every day to women of every color, shape, size, sexuality, age, religion, trans, cis, and all who identify !"

The video includes a stream of words edited over Grande dancing, such as "soft" and "hard" with the phrase "not asking for it"--which highlights a large issue of women being accused of "asking for it" in cases of crimes such as sexual harassment and assault.

The "dwt" Ariana is referencing is her Dangerous Woman Tour, which kicked off in 2017. International Women's Day has been marked by empowering messages from the likes of Grande, Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, Emma Watson, and many more.

The star continued to tweet empowering and uplifting messages, focusing on raising awareness for the inclusion of all women.

The star received a lot of support for her messages, gathering over 18,000 retweets and almost 80,000 likes on one of her messages.

Grande has often advocated for feminism, and we're glad to see her focusing attention on it not just today, but every day.
