International Women's Day is celebrated on March 8 every year. The purpose of celebrating Women's Day is to recognise the various contributions of women in society and raise awareness about gender equality. On this day, people often share shout-outs for women who are important to them. Each year on International Women's Day, therefore, social media is flooded with posts dedicated to strong women, women who have made a difference - and this year is no different.
On International Women's Day 2022, Tina Ambani celebrated the importance of sisterhood with a post dedicated to her sisters and other "wonderful women." "Cheers to my sisters and all the wonderful women who taught me the completeness of a woman, her ability to multitask effortlessly and her infinite capacity to love and nurture! Happy #WomensDay to you all," Tina Ambani wrote.
