Black Panther’s Oscar-winning costume designer Ruth Carter is amping up the girl power.
It’s Women’s History Month, and Ruth kicked it off with a new female empowering challenge – #WomeDancingTogether.
On Monday, Ruth went on Instagram to share a video of herself lip-syncing and dancing to Beyonce’s “Who Run The World (Girls).”
“Ladies! Let’s have some fun for the rest of #WomensHistoryMonth and show the world when women unite anything is possible,” she captioned the video. She then tagged some amazing ladies to take up the challenge. “I nominate @halleberry @gabunion @im.angelabassett @tasha4realsmith @lupitanyongo and @juneambrose to upload a video dancing and/or lip syncing to your favorite Women’s Empowerment Song. Use this same caption and nominate three women who inspire you to keep it going and don’t forget to use the hashtag #WomenDancingTogether 🎵 @beyonce.”
So far, Halle Berry, Gabrielle Union and June Ambrose have since graciously and gracefull taken up the challenge.
Halle did some dancing in the streets to Destiny’s Child’s “Survivor.”
“Thank you @therealruthecarter for challenging me this #WomensHistoryMonth to dance like I damn well please. This one goes out to the incredible female survivors I have encountered in my life, the women who have the tenacity to live on their own terms. The ones who take risks, hustle hard and will stop at nothing to provide the best life for themselves and the people they love. Let’s keep this going!,” she wrote alongside her video.
June got the party started with some hot dance moves as she grooved to Shania Twain’s “Man I Feel Like A Woman,” and shared her talked about the cause she’s supporting.
“#wowwednesday,” she wrote. “Fun Fact..This is how I’m celebrating The 1st day of Spring! One project I’m proud of is @TheFreshAirFund, which is led by some great women. We need more NYC kids to have a free Summer experience.

Gab also joined in, along with her baby Kaavia, for an adorable mother-daughter tandem performance.
“Thank you @therealruthecarter for starting this challenge to finish out #WomensHistoryMonth in a fun way while showing the world anything is possible when women unite! So I stretched my hips and accepted this challenge of singing, dancing, and lip syncing to my favorite female empowerment song! We have all been through something in this life. We’ve all fallen and didn’t want to get up. We’ve had our hearts broken. We’ve all experienced failures. All women share these common truths and we can ALL rise when we stick together and uplift each other. Let’s keep this going and laugh and have fun along the way,” she captioned the video of her singing a song by Mary J. Blige.
She also nominated Chrissy Teigen, Jessica Alba and Tracee Ellis Ross for the challenge.
Who else will join the challenge? We’ll have to wait and see.
