Amritsar, NFA Post: Photo-sharing platform Instagram has released a new set of stickers to celebrate International Women’s Day 2021 that falls on March 8.
The Facebook-owned platform said that the new stickers stand in solidarity with frontline workers, mothers and communities that support women.
The new stickers were designed by five artists to bring to life the experiences of disabled women, healthcare workers, motherhood, queer/trans women and more, Instagram said.
These stickers illustrated by diverse women around the world stand in solidarity with front line workers who assumed so much responsibility through the pandemic, with mothers, those among the limb disability community, with elderly Asian women who faced racism, and all the communities of support that have sparked joy in the lives of women all over the world, Public Policy and Community Outreach Manager for Instagram in India, Tara Bedi said in a post introducing the new stickers on the platform.
Users can add these stickers in their own stories, by using the swipe up option while posting a story.
Instagram has earlier also brought special stickers and filters to celebrate various occasions. Last year, the platform celebrated Diwali with a distinct AR filter called ‘Share Your Light.’
