Empowerment is defined as “Access to the control of material resources that allow increasing the implementation of political, social and economic capacities, to lead revolutionary changes or rupture with an established organic order.” The role that women represent in society has been underestimated throughout history with respect to the presence of men in most areas of human development. And in fact, unfortunately, it continues like this.
International Women’s Day 2022
Today there is more equality, women are managing not to be that icon of vulnerability that society imposed on them, but the inequity towards men is still there. There is a lack of stereotypes to break, roles of importance in various areas that are absurdly unbalanced. But the fight does not stop, and although it is done 365 days a year, 366 if it is a leap year, at least once a year it is celebrated, claimed and proclaimed, as happens every March 8.
And as often happens, social networks are a crucial element to spread the message, to unite, to raise your voice. WhatsApp is the best communication tool, and here are a number of ways and means to take advantage of it.
WhatsApp and 8M
Apps with images and phrases for Women’s Day
From quotes from great women to inspiring phrases and images to reinforce them, there are literally dozens (and hundreds) of applications to celebrate 8M every day. We are not going to give you a few chosen ones, but we will directly leave you the search selection of the Google Play Store so that you can look at one by one and select which one you want to download and use:
Change the icons of your mobile
“Violet, the color of sovereigns, symbolizes the royal blood that runs through the veins of each fighter for the right to vote, it symbolizes their awareness of freedom and dignity. White symbolizes honesty in private life and in political life. And green symbolizes hope in a new beginning.”
These were the words of English activist Emmeline Pethickone of the thousands of English suffragettes who adopted the color violet in 1908 as a symbol of their movement along with green and white. In these days before and after March 8 and Women’s Day, violet is omnipresent. And if you want to dress the icons of your mobile in this color, you can start by coloring the WhatsApp icon from its classic green to violet, something that can be done by following these steps.
# 8M Online
With thousands of parades and demonstrations in the streets around the world, 8M is a day of protest. But there are those who cannot go out, do not want to go out or are not allowed to go out. A developer has thought of this, and searching the Google Play Store we have found this new app, #8M Online, a curious and original application that allows you to live your own mani on March 8.
Free to download, 8M allows you to create an avatar from a photo -or already created-, customize its appearance. and clothing and place it in a demonstration that will be filled with more and more virtual people. An event that you can share on networks.
Strong Woman Quotes
Helen Keller, Coco Chanel, J.K Rowling, Oprah Winfrey, Mae West, Ana Frank, Maya Angelou… All examples of successful women, strong, fighters, independent, entrepreneurs, great authors. This application is a compendium of phrases and quotes from women who have fought for their rights, for the recognition of their merits, whether artistic, professional, or simply human. Phrases that you can share on networks and even place yourself as a wallpaper.
GIFs and Stickers for 8M
Nothing better than an animated gif with a quote to review what 8M means. To do this, you can open the WhatsApp GIF search engine and use the thousands that exist, but we offer you an application that you can download separately and access an updated list focused specifically on Women’s Day. We are talking about the Giphy app, the world’s largest library of GIF files, stickers and memes.
Just download and install –you don’t have to think about it-, and enter the prominent banner of its main screen, it will take you to the section ‘Women’s History Month, and you have hundreds of GIFS there to upload to your networks, to WhatsApp, along with Stories and others.
Send animated stickers with music
Messages with sounds and music are the next scale in this of speaking without words and expressing emotions with a single image. And if you want to add sounds to the animated stickers -more than integrating them into the sticker itself, the sound is played parallel to the animation of the sticker-, you can do it and that’s how. In fact there are several ways:
Download new Stickers
- Open any individual or group chat on WhatsApp
- Next text box where to write the message tap the emoji iconand below, where you have to choose between emojis and GIFs, you will also see the Sticker option
- To add new sticker packs, tap the ‘+’ icon next to it from which you want to download, and wait for confirmation If you want them animated, you will recognize them because just next to the name they have the ‘Reproduction’ or ‘Play’ icon. Go inside to see them in motion before taking them down.
Send the sticker and audio from an app
The easiest way without a doubt, there are mobile applications that allow you to combine animated and audio stickers within the app itself, and share them instantly on other networks and services like WhatsApp. To do this, download this app:
Its advantage is that works with the official version of WhatsApp, and does not need another or mods. The app offers you more than 200 stickers already ready to share and a library of 150 sounds to choose from. So you can send everything at once more easily.
Trim the audio and send it at the same time
This form is a bit complex, because you are the one who has to do all the work. The first thing is to download one of the many apps that exist to trim songs and audio files. We leave you the links of two of the best rated on Google Play:
now you must choose which part of which song, or audio of a video, sound or phrase/phrases of a person you want to play next to the sticker, and cut and edit it in one of the two applications above. When you have it ready, save it, look for the animated sticker you want and send it at the same time along with the audio that you have prepared so that they both play at the same time.
Use a WhatsApp group
If you don’t want to choose, cut, edit, etc., the simplest and easiest solution is to ‘get’ animated stickers that already have sounds from WhatsApp groups dedicated to it. Groups like this that we leave you Stickerland Rewind IX, a group with more than 200 users dedicated simply to uploading animated and/or sound stickers.
To join you must open the address that we put below from a mobile browser, or simply send it to yourself to a WhatsApp chat and open it from there:
Congratulate all your contacts on WhatsApp on 8M at the same time
With the function of Mailing lists, you can send messages to multiple contacts at once. A Broadcast List is a list of recipients that is saved. When you use this list, you can re-broadcast a message to the same recipients without having to select them one by one again.

Only contacts who have your number saved in their phone’s address book will receive your broadcast messages.
