Olivia Wilde Shared An Empowering Birthday Tribute To Her Daughter On Instagram

"My curious, courageous one."

Wednesday marked the first birthday of Olivia Wilde and Jason Sudeikis' daughter Daisy. It happened to fall on International Day of the Girl, which made Wilde's Instagram tribute even more empowering. 

"My curious, courageous one, I promise we'll work hard to make this place better for you and your sisters everywhere," Wilde wrote alongside a photo of Daisy. "We've taken some hits recently, but I believe we are even more determined because of it."

Wilde went on to share an inspiring message that applies just as much to girls and women around the world as it does to her own daughter — and is especially important to read in light of current events.

"We dream of a time when you won't have to apologize for your brilliance, or sacrifice your self-respect to prove your worthiness," she wrote. "This world is yours, kiddo. We're just the cleanup crew. I love you. Happy birthday." She added the hashtag #internationaldayofthegirl.

Wilde also posted a funny image of herself in the hospital on the day Daisy was born, giving the middle finger to the camera. "A year ago, today, juuuuust as the drugs kicked in," she wrote, adding that the birth was "a little bit complicated."

The actress went on to thank the team who assisted her at Mount Sinai Hospital in New York. "Let's hear it for modern medicine. It shouldn't be reserved for the lucky few," she wrote.

Wilde, who also has a 3-year-old son named Otis with Sudeikis, has been vocal about feminism in the past, including raising her son to believe in gender equality. "I want to promote the idea that the definition of feminism is equality and it's something that's not difficult to teach children because they are born with that sensibility," she said in an interview last year.

Recently, Wilde shared her support for women accusing Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein of sexual harassment, writing on Twitter, "The victim blaming needs to stop. As does the shaming of women who didn't come forward earlier. They spoke, and we are here to listen."
