The Latest on International Women's Day:
"Black Panther" star Danai Gurira says the hit movie is showing the world that women and men "can work shoulder to shoulder" and their abilities "are equally valued in a society."
Gurira spoke at an event marking International Women's Day on Thursday at U.N. headquarters in New York.
She says the movie has made "a massive splash" because such a representation of powerful women is rarely seen.
On a night featuring real-life heroines, many actresses went for something strong and bold on the Oscar red carpet — something metallic.
Jennifer Lawrence, Lupita Nyong'o, Gal Gadot, Salma Hayek and Sandra Bullock literally shimmered in gold and silver gowns. They stood out on a carpet that starred mostly whites and neutrals.

BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. (AP) — Scientist. Warrior. Queen Mother. Spy. These are just a few of the job titles of the women of "Black Panther," now playing nationwide.
None of them are fighting over a guy, or needing one to save them. They are fierce, proud, intelligent and capable. And, in the case of Danai Gurira's character Okoye and her fellow Dora Milaje fighters: Bald and rocking a bold lip while protecting the nation of Wakanda at the highest level.
