"Thank you for using this day to provoke such important conversation about women! #IWD2018," the 41-year-old actress wrote on Twitter.
Gurira's Black Panther co-star, Nyong'o, meanwhile, shined a spotlight on Gurira's organization, Love Our Girls. "The Pantherpuff Girls are here for #InternationalWomensDay! We must see, respect & honor the different kinds of strength that women possess," she wrote. "Give a voice to women around the world and take the pledge for @DanaiGurira’s #LoveOurGirls: logpledge.org Art: @PrimePremne."
