Which celebrity message inspires you to empower and inspire other women?

Part of the reason we celebrate stars so much is because they are larger than life and inspire us to be better people.

Sometimes they don't always turn out to be the amazing role models we chalk them up to be — they are human, after all — but this past weekend, female celebrities showed up on social media in droves to prove that they and women around the world are forces to be reckoned with in honor of International Women's Day.

Emma Watson, Goodwill Ambassador to UN Women and captain of the HeForShe campaign, kicked off the day by hosting a live conversation on Facebook, welcoming people to ask questions about HeForShe and gender equality. "Encourage and include each other," Watson said during the chat. "Don't try and ostracize each other and have an open mind and don't have expectations based on the gender or the sex you see in front of you."

Kourtney Kardashian seized the moment to recognize the strong women in her own life that inspire her. Hate on the Kardashian clan all you want, but Kourtney's message about teaching girls, and boys, to be who they are and lift each other up is super-powerful.

Each of them empower me daily just by watching them be who they are. #internationalwomensday #teachyourchildren
