International Women's Day saw a worldwide celebration of incredible achievements, an acknowledgment of much work yet to be done and... cool emojis.

Emma Watson, #HeForShe advocate and feminist du jour, was clearly excited at Twitter's initiative and her enthusiasm was shared by none other than J.K Rowling.

And it went on...

And then Taylor Swift got involved and we very nearly couldn't handle it until we realised it wasn't the real Taylor Swift.

Oh well.

The collective feedback from the exchange was almost as good.

By all accounts International Women's Day was a resounding success, not least because many men learned a valuable lesson courtesy of Richard Herring and Ricky Gervais.
