On March 8, it was the International Women’s Day, a great opportunity for a lot of stars to speak about feminism and defend women’s rights.
As a real business woman and a feminist, this day was really important for Sophia because it was such a great opportunity for her voice to be heard! That is why the beautiful, who has over 1 million followers on Twitter and 2 million on Instagram, took advantage of her notoriety to speak about how important it was for her to give to girls – all around the world – an access to education, especially by supporting the charity “The Girl Project” – which she already helps with I Smell Great. Indeed, on every product sold, I Smell Great gives 1$ to The Girl Project. If you wanna learn more about the partnership between I Smell Great & The Girl Project you can read our artcile about it here.

“This #InternationalWomensDay I have a call to action for all of you!!

In celebration of female empowerment, Sophia went to New York in order to make an interview with Huffington Post in which she spoke about how important it was for her to empower women. Then, Sophia went to People Style and EXTRA, always with the aim of speaking of her project and spread hope and love.

You can watch some pictures of Sophia arriving and leaving the Huffington Post studios in New York below and her interview under the article!

“What is feminism to me ? It’s so not complicated. I watched people fight on whether it’s appropriate to be a feminist or not. And I sit here thinking, ‘well I’m a woman. I would like to be judged on the quality of my work. I would like to be compensated fairly for my work. I would like to have just as much access to health care as any man.’ Yeah. Yeah that’s pretty much it. I don’t know what the big fight is all about.”
