International Women’s Day 2021 got a lot of attention Monday on social media, from women and men alike.

Lo’s niece Lucie.

Idina Menzel and Chaka Khan knocked out a new duet rendition of “I’m Every Woman” — Khan’s 1978 debut solo single that was later covered by Whitney Houston — on behalf of global aid organization CARE.

“It takes a VILLAGE. Behind everything I do, there is a team of smart, driven, talented, badass women supporting and championing me to be the best version of myself in all that I do,” tweeted actress Priyanka Chopra Jonas. And Kelly Rowland tweeted, “love and light to all my ladies around the world.”
