Actress and singer Andrea Jeremiah, who's quite active on social media has been known for being vocal about social issues expressing her views on social media and now she has spoken about the significance of the black-and-white challenge which is trending on social media.

Women all over the world are posting monochromic images of themselves with the hashtag #womensupportingwomen and #challengeaccepted, with a woman nominating another woman, and this woman in turn nominating another one or more. This challenge was started after the killing of Pinar Gultekin, a Turkish woman, and the campaign was started against femicide.

Andrea posted a photo of Pinar Gultekin and captioned it "Thought this needed to be out there... so many women in India, including myself have posted #blackandwhite images of ourselves with the hashtag #challengeaccepted just coz a friend of ours nominated us, not really understanding the REAL significance of it. STOP hate crimes against #women ! Let’s work towards an equal world ???????? #womenempowerment #womensupportingwomen #pinargultekin".
