British-Indian composer Anoushka Shankar, on Sunday, put out a video of hers on Twitter along with the hashtag #imdone. 

In the 45-second-long video which was created for and ahead of the International Women's Day, she speaks about a list of things that she is done dealing with.

At the end of what seems like another campaign (in the likes of #metoo and #timesup) to create awareness about the issues that women face all through their life, the 36-year-old has invited fellow women to share the thing that they are done with.

In no time, women across the world have liked, tweeted and retweeted the video along with videos of themselves sharing the things that bothers them.

The caption to her tweet read:

"I'm done. Are you? I nominate @thandienewton @RichaChadha @PoornaJags @Alyssa_Milano @maryamccartney @kalkikanmani @kaymontano @SophieRunning @lilycole and all of YOU to tell me what you're done with. #TimesUp #MeToo #ImDone"

While tagging various other celebrities including Kalki Koechlin, Richa Chadha and Alyssa Milano in the tweet, she has not forgotten to shout-out  her solidarity to the recent #metoo and #timesup movements by using the respective hashtags in the tweet.

She starts the video by saying," It's almost International Women's Day again and I'm just so done with a lot of things".

She then continues by saying that she is done with, " making myself smaller to make the men around me look big enough.. I'm done feeling grateful for getting a share, even if the share is less than equal...Im' done carrying the shame of men which belongs to them for their behavior...I'm done having relationships with men who are anything other than 100 percent feminists..I'm done allowing any negative influence in to the life of my sons, which will impact their ability to grow up to be feminists in the future."

She ends the video by asking,""What are you done with?" to all the women out there.

"Say it out...Say it proud," she insists
