Anyone else notice an influx in women across GoPro channels this week?

From a visit with “The Blind Cook” to catching up with the filmmaker behind a documentary about the women of big-wave surfing, this was no coincidence. Each day this week, we’ve featured a fearless female who has a story to share, a moment to celebrate and a voice to be heard.

Now today, March 8, we are culminating what we’ve dubbed the Week if Women by celebrating International Women’s Day. And there’s no better way for us to celebrate than by sharing a badass video of badass women doing badass things, all captured on GoPro.

Glimpses of surfers Coco Ho, Johanne Defay and Victoria Vergara, downhill mountain bikers Valentina Höll and Rachel Atherton, climber Sasha Digiulian, human flight adrenaline junkie Roberta Mancino, skater Leticia Bufoni, skier Emma Dahlstrom, freestyle soccer star Indi Cowie, and gold medalist volleyball player Kerri Walsh Jennings, to name a few, are seen throughout the video. But what really stands out is what all those featured have in common. They are mothers, daughters, friends, and above all, fierce competitors. Competitors who are helping push toward a equality and embody the theme for IWD 2019 is “a balanced world is a better world.”

So join us in giving #BalanceforBetter and IWD2019 a bigger voice, and share your badass moments by tagging @GoPro.

Shout to the women of GoPro who brought life to this video—whether it was in front of the lens, from the editing bay or by putting pen to paper—this one’s for you!
