International Women's Day <GIFs

    All the women who are independent, throw your hands up at me...!

    It’s International Women’s Day today, time for celebration! And what’s a better way to do it, then to list MTV’s favourite independent women. You might as well want to watch the Q&A with Emma Watson on Facebook, but we’ll get to that in a sec.

    From Miley Cyrus creating awareness about homeless youth, to Lady Gaga's promotion for LGTB rights, to Meghan Trainors influence on a positive body image: these 10 independent women have all influenced our personal lives, or even the world (we’re looking at you Queen Bey). Check out our overview and let us know on Twitter if you agree!

    And what was that thing about Emma Watson we mentioned earlier on? The feminist at heart is hosting a conversation about gender equality today, with her solidarity movement He For She. Check the Facebook video below, where Emma announces the event and also make sure to live-stream it on Facebook!
