YouTube Launches #DearMe Campaign to Honor International Women's Day

Women write online letters to their former selves.

International Women's Day is coming up on March 8, and to celebrate, YouTube has launched a #DearMe campaign. The initiative asks women to record their answers to the question: "If you could go back in time, what wisdom would you share with your teenage self?"

YouTube bloggers such as Hannah Hart and Michelle Phan have already shared their words, and YouTube compiled a group of testimonies to explain the kind of messages #DearMe strives to use to empower young women.
