    Yesterday was International Women's Day, and the singer shared a post on Instagram that commemorated the holiday as he reflected on his past understanding of women's issues.

    "I know I have been naive and haven’t been empathetic toward women in the past and have overlooked their struggles," he admitted in the statement.

    "I am learning everyday beside my wife as I see all of the struggles she faces that I will never have to face."

    "I am committed to being better and more aware of the struggles women face that men never will!!"

    Bieber concluded the post by calling women "superheroes" who "deserve to be celebrated today and every day."

    This isn't the first time Bieber's taken to Instagram to post a message that's important to him. Earlier this year, he opened up about his 2014 arrest and what he learned from the experience: "7 years ago today I was arrested, not my finest hour...Don’t allow shame to ruin your 'today'."

    After all, learning is an essential part of growing up.
