Feminist Blogs That EVERYONE Should Follow

We don’t know about you, but we’ve been doing a lot more scrolling on instagram than usual this quarantine. We’ve seen all the instagram challenges, tiktok reposts, skincare routines and a lot more. But along with all that, we also discovered some really cool accounts that we think everyone should be following, regardless of gender. These accounts stand up for women, support women and empower women. Scroll down to learn more about them and follow them asap – your feed will thank you for it!

1. Feministan

What’s better than an account that is not just about feminism, but about actually educating one on the principles of it? Feministan is a gold mine and we truly believe everyone should be following this account. From having a series that puts light on the ‘women of Pakistan’, to educating people on home based women workers and to sharing the names of various Pakistani feminist books – feministan will keep you busy for a while! Plus, we love how colourful and aligned their feed is.

3. Brown Girl Voices

There is nothing we love more than empowering fellow women. After all if women don’t support women, who will? And that’s exactly what Brown Girl Voices is about. They showcase the abundance of talent present amongst the women of our country, whether that’s in music, art or poetry. They quite literally give women a voice!

Feeling stuck and can’t find the motivation to start doing anything at all? This one’s for you! 🙌 We all had so many plans for this year; some of us wanted to start a new business, go off to our dream college, finish that degree, start a new job, travel to a new destination or simply start getting our lives together! Not being able to accomplish them have made some of us internalize feelings of guilt or feeling like a failure! I’ve personally been struggling with this since the past few weeks! 🤯 • But please remind yourself that we’re all going through a collective trauma and trying our best to deal with it! Remind yourself of the most important life lesson that there’s only so much we can plan & control! What is in our control, is our reaction to the circumstances and our ability to start over! I know it’s easier said than done, but JUST START❗️ Start whatever it is that you had planned, perhaps not in the way you had initially wanted to, but start, taking those baby steps in that direction. We all gotta start somewhere! • I personally started going back to my pre-covid routine, to be able to feel physically, mentally and emotionally healthy enough to find the motivation to work towards my personal & professional goals! 💯 What’s that one thing that you’ve wanted to start but these circumstances came in the way? Share it in the comments, maybe we can all inspire each other to take that first step to get there; slowly, but surely! 🙌

6. Bhain Hood

This is such a genius account that we feel everyone needs to go follow it before we even go further. Are you done? Okay, great. Bhain Hood is about giving women a space to be their true, raw and authentic self. You can rant, laugh, discover, be loud, and above all – not be judged. They know how to not take themselves seriously and still be true to who they are, and we so admire that. If you want to get lost in an account for a while, let it be this one.

Remember – we are all in this together and we can only do better if we support one another.

10. The Pakistani Feminist

There can never be enough accounts sharing content that propagates equality of the sexes, but The Pakistani Feminist makes it a point to post a lot of educational content regarding it and we love that. From discussing things like the wage gap, to calling out problematic behaviour in our society – this account is perfect for your daily dose of feminist content.
