Anyone who has been active on Instagram lately would agree with me that the timeline has been filled with beautiful pictures edited with the black and white filters. This singular movement was initiated to acknowledge women to support each other. It was dubbed with the hashtag, "#ChallengeAccepted"

However, the real meaning of this challenge might be deeper than what we might be seeing or thinking. The main aim of this challenge, is to raise awareness on the increasingly high cases of femicide in Turkey. 


The women who are willing to participate are to post a photo on their page filtered with Black and White then tag other women to do the same. This trend has since spread like wildfire and celebrities all over the world are joining the challenge. As at the time of filing this report, the hashtag has gathered over 4.5 million posts on Instagram.
