Support Your Social Media 'Girl Gang'!

Let’s be real here for a second. Most of us would be lying if we said we didn’t get the majority of our news and information from the internet. Internet articles have quickly taken over social media, from open letters to harsh reviews to listicles to Her Campus articles; there isn’t a day when I don’t read at least three internet writings. Knowing that whatever account you decide to like/follow will be posting numerous articles to your feed every day, you want to make sure the accounts you follow publish quality stuff and that they publish articles on topics about which you’re passionate. Feminism is a social justice issue about which many are (or should be) passionate and wonderfully enough, it is a commonly covered issue on social media! So, from a fellow feminist, here are some of the best gender equality accounts to like/follow!

1. HeForShe

“It’s 2016 and women around the world are still being abused, objectified and silenced. Yet, women are half of the world’s potential and every single one has the right to a life free from discrimination. Your voice is powerful—raise it to tell the world why equality for every woman and girl is worth fighting for.”
