The #WomenSupportingWomen challenge is flooding our social media feed with empowering photos.

The basic gist is that women share a black and white photo of themselves that makes them feel confident and powerful. Then, they tag a friend or friends to do the same. The origins of the challenge are from a movement in Turkey, “...Women in Turkey began posting black-and-white photos on social media last week to protest femicide and domestic violence and to grieve the violent death of Pinar Gültekin, a university student who was reportedly killed by her ex-boyfriend this month.”

We already have the utmost respect for the American Ninja Warrior women and know just how powerful they are. What’s great about this challenge is it gives us a glimpse at the moments these athletes personally feel like their best selves.
