Twitter is marking International Women’s Day and Women’s History Month with its #EveryWoman campaign, aimed at advancing the intersectional inclusion of women at Twitter, in the tech space and in the global female community.
The social network said in an email that there have been 125 million tweets about feminism and equality over the past three years, and 3 million of those tweets specifically mentioned intersectionality.
Business resource group @TwitterWomen is spearheading the campaign.
Twitter rolled out hashtag-triggered emojis for tweets containing the hashtags #EveryWoman, #IWD, #InternationalWomensDay, #TwitterTogether or #UntilWeAllBelong.
The @TwitterWomen account will tweet open-ended prompts throughout the month to spur conversation aimed at building up and connecting women around the world.
@TwitterWomen is also compiling a list of influential women to follow, including Marley Dias, Emma González, Yara Shahidi, Greta Thunberg and Grace Vanderwaal.
