Louise Pentland, Ingrid Nilsen, Jackie Aina, Yuya, Taty Ferreira, Hayla Ghazal and Chika Yoshida are all getting involved, and, according to Ten Eighty Magazine, will be creating content to raise awareness and educate people about gender discrimination against girls and women, with the overall aim to end such inequality.

Speaking about her involvement, Jackie said: "I want people around the world to know that when our women are empowered, we can do so much in the workplace, in the economy, at home, in schools, and everywhere else. And I want those same opportunities even more to be available to minority women."
