When she’s not fighting to save Wakanda in Black Panther or teaming up with the Avengers in Avengers: Infinity War or fighting herds of Walkers on The Walking Dead, superstar Danai Gurira is focusing her time on empowering other women.

Gurira just recently joined the likes of Wonder Woman star Gal Gadot, singer Ariana Grande, and model Gigi Hadid for Reebok’s newest marketing campaign focusing on strong and powerful women.

“Here’s to the women making change! We’re celebrating women who are transforming themselves and the world around them,” reads the Reebok website.

The campaign focuses on celebrating how powerful, strong and outspoken women can inspire others to bring about change in their own lives and in the world today. In addition, the campaign is also focusing on the brand’s #BeMoreHuman initiative which encourages other to be the best person they can be physically, mentally and socially.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Reebok’s VP of Marketing Melanie Boulden said in a statement:

“Reebok has a long history of empowering women and supporting those who empower others. We did this back in the 1980s when the brand helped usher in a new fitness movement, led by women, that changed a culture and made it OK for women to sweat and have muscles. We are still at it today, developing an innovative product for women, by women, and encouraging females to experience the physical, mental and social transformation that happens when we move — the essence of our Be More Human philosophy.”

Gurira is perhaps best-known for her role as Michonne, a strong and totally badass woman, on AMC’s The Walking Dead. New showrunner Angela Kang has previously confirmed that the upcoming ninth season will not only experience a time jump in the storyline but that the strong women characters, like Michonne, will be leading the narrative of the season.

We can’t wait to see what the upcoming season has in store for Gurira’s character.

The Walking Dead will be taking over San Diego Comic-Con on Friday of this week where hopefully we’ll get some juicy season nine news. The series will return to AMC with new episodes starting this fall.
