March is Women's History Month, and while there are countless individuals to celebrate, we wanted to spotlight some of the badass women making the internet a better place (on top of their IRL accomplishments). From a pioneer in cannabis cuisine to the co-founder of Bitch Magazine, here are ten incredible women, all who make checking our social feeds a more inspiring practice.
Ashley Manta writes and talks about sex and cannabis… a lot. What's not to love? A sex educator by trade, Manta is known for her CannaSexual brand, where she instructs folks on how to mindfully combine sex and cannabis for the ultimate in pleasure. For a feed that breaks down the stigma and shame surrounding both cannabis and sex, Manta is your go to.
Patricia Valoy is a Latina feminist with a background in civil engineering. She is also a huge supporter and champion of women and girls in STEM. And while her social media feed touches on these important topics, it's also a place where you can find smart social and political commentary and the occasional picture of her two adorable dogs (or her fabulous ring collection).
Andi Zeisler is literally the Head Bitch in Charge. That's because she's a co-founder of Bitch Magazine, which places a feminist lens on pop culture. Her feed is a mix of super sharp commentary on the news of the day and hilarious wit that every one (including your average stoner) will greatly appreciate.
Founder of the hashtag #GirlsLikeUs, Janet Mock has made a name for herself as a writer, TV personality, and transgender advocate. Her feed is a mix of inspirational stories, calls to action (particularly in support of transgender and women of color), and tons of Beyoncé.
If you're a sports fan, you should definitely already be following Kavitha Davidson. This seasoned sportswriter fills her timeline with a mix of sports info/opinions, general awesome feminist-minded content, and lots of next-level GIFs.
Katie Klabusich's feed has everything: Reproductive health news, abortion rights information, mental health discussions, polyamorous musings, and so much more. Klabusich — a writer, podcast host and speaker — doesn't mince words or hold back. Her raw and honest social media presence doesn't sugarcoat anything, and that's one of the things we love best about her.
We all need to laugh, so if you're not already following Ashley Black on Twitter, you're missing out on some much needed dopamine releases. In addition to being a comedian, Black is a writer and correspondent for the absolutely hilarious Full Frontal with Samantha Bee. By following Black, you'll get the perfect mix of memes, jokes, and snarky political commentary. Cheers to this hilarious and talented entertainer.
