Camila McConaughey, wife of actor Matthew McConaughey, and Adrienne Bosh, wife of retired basketball star Chris Bosh, are two well-known Austin residents participating in the social media trend #ChallengeAccepted.


The trend, in which women post a black-and-white photo of themselves on Instagram or other social media, is meant to empower other women. There are more than 4 million posts with the hashtag, used by both famous and non-famous people.

Vanessa Bryant, late basketball star Kobe Bryant's wife, nominated both McConaughey and Bosh on her private Instagram to take part in the challenge.

The two responded with their own empowerment post about supporting and taking care of one another.
