The ability to instantly project our thoughts through words that reach potentially millions of people without the need to appear on TV was an inconceivable dream little more than a decade ago. It also was a dream to potentially reach millions without writing for printed newspapers before the TV. Today we can connect with so many people via smartphone through social media at any time we want. How ridiculously far we’ve come.
Across all of the platforms we could tackle to get our message across, Instagram sticks out especially because it is an image-based site. And what better way to get our message across than with stare-grabbing Feminist influencer posts? People enjoy fun, entertaining content while scrolling on the ‘gram which these feminist Instagram accounts have in spades, plus, lots of feminist subtexts, what’s there not to enjoy? Be sure to follow them.

#6 Your Fat Friend
This anonymous essayist is positively brilliant and approaches the issue of existing in the world as a fat person from a perspective I would definitely call feminist. This person clearly approaches the issue as a *political* issue wherein a group of people face systemic discrimination that should be dismantled, rather than seeing the solution to fatness as self-love. To me, this kind of critique, or seeing the politics through the noise of brand building, is quintessentially feminist.

Christine Scott-Hudson is a licensed Feminist Psychotherapist and Owner of Create Your Life Studio, an art therapy and psychology studio for women and girls.
Kinkly’s mission is to promote conversations around sex, bodies and pursuing pleasure in ways that are safe, healthy, consensual and fun. We think pleasure is a birthright and we support the kind of consensual exploration that is still frowned upon in many circles, especially when it’s women who are pursuing it. The aim of our Instagram account is to inspire people to embrace their sexuality, their bodies and their desires.
