What better way to kick off Spring than with a little girl power? Heck, why not begin every day with some girl power, am I right? I feel like everywhere I look, women are beaming with strength, determination and encouragement for themselves and their fellow females. You see, unless you’ve been living under a rock, it’d be pretty hard to not notice, witness or read about the influx of girl power taking place and not just in our country, but around the globe. I’m not going to lie, I have totally hopped on this bandwagon of feminism. I have always been a girl power kind of chick, but these days I am really feeling it. I can feel it in my heart how important this movement is and always has been to the human race. You know what’s funny about all of this? Women birth humans. They literally push and push (or in many cases thru c-section), until a small human comes out. One would freaking think that this alone would call for equality across the board seeing as though none of us would be here if someone didn’t force them out of their female body in the first place. But no, many of us are all still fighting for our equal place in the world, workplace, and at home. In our entire existence we are continually on that hunt for the feeling of equality and women’s rights. From the moment we ladies come out of the vagina we become part of that equation. Having marched with hundreds of thousands of women really opened my mind and heart to what being a woman means to me. Naturally I have found myself following some bad ass handles on Instagram that scream girl power. Some are full of quotes from some of the baddest bitches around, others are funny in their fearless fight for rights and equality and others showcase activism happening all over the world. Although each handle is unique in their own style and mission, all of them encourage self-love, equality and womanhood. Here are a few of my favorite handles that are flooded with female strength, beauty and inspiration. What’s not to love about that?
@femalepositivity is full of love and as you can see, positivity. It’s girly, creative and super inspirational.
@p_ssyhatproject is all about the pussyhat. The feed is filled with pink kitty cat hats and showcases women all over the world who have chosen to be part of this movement. If you’re looking to buy a hat for yourself and friends, look no further.
Oh my goodness do I worship @rupikaur_. Her poems are incredibly beautiful, emotional and thought provoking. Not only does Rupi write but she also creates delicate art to correspond with her perfectly paired words.
@helloflo is fun! They bring a playful, yet honest approach to feminism. Their feed is a really lovely blend of femininity and art.
Just like snowflakes, no two vulva are alike. @the.vulva.gallery is basically a handle filled with all sorts of different drawings of vulva. It celebrates self love and all vaginas, no matter what they look like. It also educates their followers with facts and awareness about our bodies. If you’re looking to learn more about your vulva, this is the handle for you.
@huffpostwomen is a handle dedicated to “what it means to be a woman — and like it.” It’s all girl power up on this feed with a healthy dose of humor as well.
@girlboss is all about encouraging the inner badass boss in all of us. It’s sassy, colorful and bossy. I love this handle.
@daisynatives is girly af. Think lots of hearts, rainbows, words of female empowerment and girls supporting girls. It’s a super fun handle to follow….and to shop on. That confetti shirt has my freaking name written all over it. Oh and same with the pin.
@wordsofwomen is straight up badassery. This handle is insanely gorgeous and filled with powerful words of strength. This one is a must follow.
If you marched at the Women’s March or wondering what it’s all about, this is the handle for you. @womensmarch showcases the diversity among the activists along with the strength and determination of these incredible human beings. Being part of the Women’s March was one of my coolest, most inspirational days I have had yet.
All hail @notoriousrbg. If you’re looking to follow a feed that is all about the smart and courageous Ruth Bader Ginsburg, here you go. Oh and don’t worry, there is more where this comes from. Here’s the book written by the same curators of @notoriousrbg. I’ll definitely be grabbing a copy to keep that fire of feminism burning from within.
When it comes to tampons, I say no to bleach and fragrances. Not only will I be going to Target to pick up some of these organic tampons, but I’ll also be following @corawomen. Their handle is gorgeous, girly and full of self love. Oh and yoga…yoga is my friend.
I hope you got your fill of feminism and empowerment today. There is tons more where that came from on each of these Instagram handles so don’t forget to check them out. If you know of any feeds I should be following, do tell in the comments below. Thanks TSPeeps and don’t forget, you are bad ass and beautiful! XOXO
