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

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.
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.
It's #InternationalWomensDay. Don't embarrass yourself by asking why there's no international men's day. There is. Nov 19th. You're welcome.— Ricky Gervais (@rickygervais) March 8, 2016
You are wrong. Nov 19 RT @lmaohobbie: Correct me if I'm wrong but we have int women's days but I don't remember international men's day 😬— Richard K Herring (@Herring1967) March 8, 2016
