5 IG accounts dedicated to inspiring women during these difficult times

In the wake of the Women’s Marches over the past two years, as well as the stories that have come out of the #MeToo movement, we have seen a wave of support and solidarity amongst women.

The marches that have occurred across the nation emphatically demonstrated that women are uniting together and are motivated to take to the streets to protect their rights against an administration that is committed to the policing of women’s bodies.

Plus, the recent revelations from the Brett Kavanagh case have been particularly traumatic for women and for those who have experienced sexual assault to witness unfold.

In dealing with such a high level of complacency, as well as the propagation of the ‘boys will be boys’ sentiment, it is clear that women need to be there for one another and must continue to resist the patriarchal forces of oppression.

Indeed, the current political climate has increasingly seen women choosing not to be silent anymore. Instead, they have chosen to vocalize their stories and experiences and consequently there is a greater sense of collective political consciousness.

At the same time, we must also recognize and continue to reinforce that each one of us comes with our own very specific set of experiences that shape who we are and how our identity is perceived by others. That is to say, our identities are intersectional and are composed of the other contingencies of race, class, ability, and sexuality.

These five Instagram accounts I have listed quote women who came before us, who are amongst us now, and whom will ultimately pave the way for others to come.

The IG accounts offer the much-needed daily words of encouragement women need to continue to move through the world, empower, do boss-ass shit, practice self-love, and to march the streets until change comes.
