From Ananya to Sara: Here’s why everyone is sharing black and white pictures on social media

Women across the world are posting photos on social media with the hashtag #WomenSupportingWomen and #ChallengeAccepted

If you have been active on social media of late, you would have seen women sharing black and white pictures of themselves with the hashtags #WomenSupportingWomen and #ChallengeAccepted. The latest social media challenge aims to spread a message on female solidarity and women empowerment.

But this is not the first time women have taken to sharing black and white images of themselves as part of a social media challenge. Back in 2016, such pictures were shared to spread awareness for cancer. This time, the trend has picked up massively with reportedly as many as 3 lakh pictures being posted on Instagram alone.

Take a look at who all has taken up the latest social media challenge:
