Calling on celebs to partake in her fun dancing activity, the 58-year-old fashion extraordinaire takes to social media to show that "anything is possible" when women come together.

"Ladies! Let's have some fun for the rest of #WomensHistoryMonth and show the world when women unite anything is possible," the Black Panther costume designer captions her Instagram post, along with a video of her dancing to Beyoncé's iconic female anthem, "Run the World (Girls)."

"I nominate @halleberry @gabunion @im.angelabassett @tasha4realsmith @lupitanyongo and @juneambrose to upload a video dancing and/or lip syncing to your favorite Women's Empowerment Song. Use this same caption and nominate three women who inspire you to keep it going and don't forget to use the hashtag #WomenDancingTogether."

Naturally, Halle BerryGabrielle Union and June Ambrose have all followed suit, uploading videos to their Instagram to participate in Ruth's challenge.

"So I stretched my hips and accepted this challenge of singing, dancing, and lip syncing to my favorite female empowerment song," Union writes in her video caption, while also holding her 4-month baby girl, Kaavia James Union Wade.

"We have all been through something in this life. We've all fallen and didn't want to get up. We've had our hearts broken. We've all experienced failures. All women share these common truths and we can ALL rise when we stick together and uplift each other."

The 46-year-old actress nominated Chrissy Teigen, Jessica Alba and Tracee Ellis Ross, who have not yet posted their challenges (just yet).

Berry takes to Instagram to share her power song, Destiny's Child's "Survivor." 

"Thank you @therealruthecarter for challenging me this #WomensHistoryMonth to dance like I damn well please."

She adds, "This one goes out to the incredible female survivors I have encountered in my life, the women who have the tenacity to live on their own terms. The ones who take risks, hustle hard and will stop at nothing to provide the best life for themselves and the people they love."

The 52-year-old star nominated Reese Witherspoon, Kelly Rowland and Ciara. They have yet to accept the challenge.

Along with Halle and Gabrielle, the 47-year-old stylist joins the fun and adds a charitable layer to her video.

"Fun Fact..This is how I'm celebrating The 1st day of Spring," Ambrose shares on Instagram. "One project I'm proud of is @TheFreshAirFund, which is led by some great women. We need more NYC kids to have a free Summer experience. If you live in the five Boroughs You can make your mark for #womenhistory month! #rockmoms Register your kid for #FriendlyTowns at the link in my Bio! Every kid deserve to feel this free!"

This momma has some serious moves! Reese Witherspoon is coming in hot with a hammer time moment and more jealousy-inducing dance skills that are seriously impressive. 

Now, Mindy Kaling is passing the baton on to Chrissy Teigen and other celebs who will definitely have people itching for more impromptu dances.
