Share

International Women's Day is finally here. It's a day all about celebrating and harnessing the power of women for all that they are, and all that they do, and girls for the women they will one day be. In celebration of International Women's Day, on March 8, Looks Like Film released a collection of the most incredible pictures of women from its community, and all of them are so empowering.

The collection of photos posted on Looks Like Film includes girls and women of all ages, and celebrates their beauty in all forms. It features photos of young girls harnessing their power, women with disabilities, older women, mothers and mothers-to-be, and more with the aim of showcasing how "beautiful" and "strong" each woman is, according to the Looks Like Film website.

"The idea behind this collection is to show the beauty of women in the most diverse way ever," curator Lukas Piatek tells Romper of the collection. "Beauty has no age limit and it also does not matter what skin color you have or what a scar life left on you." Piatek says he's hopeful people will see just how "badass" women are.

"People should take away that women can be badass no matter who they are or where the come from. This is why we looked through former submissions from our community and created this collection that just celebrates the beauty of women in all ways possible," he tells Romper.

And here are some of the fiercest photos of women from Looks Like Film's extensive collection. Enjoy!

International Women's Day is more important than ever under the current administration, which, as Paste pointed out, has attacked women and their rights a number of times. Beyond that, though, according to the International Women's Day website, the day celebrates the achievements of women in various fields, as well as encouraging the empowerment of women everywhere.

Through and through, no matter their profession or stage in their lives, women everywhere badasses, just as these incredible photos show.
