Year In Review: How these black and white pictures made a comeback in 2020

Like the years that have passed and the years that are still to come, 2020 was filled with its fair share of social media challenges. One of the most prominent being, #ChallengeAccepted.


During the year we saw many challenges come and go, like most recently the Duduzane Zuma challenge.

One of the most prominent challenges that filled our feeds had to be #ChallengeAccepted.

If you (somehow) missed it, the black and white pictures that were being shared were accompanied by a caption, #ChallengeAccepted, an empowering message, and a nomination to other women to follow suit.

What really kicked the challenge into high gear was when US politician Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez confronted sexist comments aimed at her in a video that has now been shared online, causing this challenge to only gain momentum.

This challenge was more relevant than ever, as it called for women to support each other, with many adding an inspirational quote, while also nominating other women to follow suit and post their own contribution to the campaign.

Women have time after time been pitted against and been forced to compete against each other, instead of supporting each other and trying to build other women up. #ChallengeAccepted had one aim and that was to pull away from the negative, stop the comparisons, and instead help women see their own strengths while simultaneously lifting up others.

It is also important to note that although it has taken a new shape and form in 2020 by focusing on women empowerment, it also played a pivotal role in raising awareness and shined a light on the increased gender-based and domestic violence Turkish women face. 

We loved seeing all the beautiful pictures these strong women had to share so we've included just a few of our favourites:
