#ChallengeAccepted – Here Is why women are posting black-and-white pictures
A campaign that purports to be about “women supporting women” is filling people’s Instagram feeds with striking, if opaque, imagery.
Over the past several days, many Instagram feeds have been overrun with black-and-white images of women both famous and not.
These photographs are often posed and filtered, taken from flattering angles, and accompanied by benign captions about “supporting women.”
May our appreciation for one another as women never cease. If you’re just reading this message know that you too are beautiful, strong and outstanding. ❤
Dineo Moeketsi Langa posted on her instagram in acceptance of the challenge and she in turn challenged Basetsana Khumalo, Angela Sithole, Sihle Ndaba and others.
The premise of the “challenge accepted” trend is that these photos promote female empowerment, and that nominating friends to take part in the campaign is a way for women to support each other.
Challenge accepted. Thank you for nominating me @vanessabryant ❤️ I am awed by the power of women loving each other and lifting each other up!!!!! And I adore you Xo. Kerry Washington joined in the challenge as she posted on her instagram.
