10 Amazing Women to Follow on Social Media

In celebration of the start of Women's History Month, we spotlight ten badasses making the internet a less terrible place.

by Avital Norman Nathman

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

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

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

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.  

Janet Mock

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.

Kavitha Davidson

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

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.


Jessica Catalano

Another amazing cannabis-inspired woman to follow, Jessica Catalano is well known for The Ganja Kitchen Revolution and for being a pioneer in cannabis cuisine. Catalano was the first chef to publicly talk about using "specific strains in specific recipes" to enhance the flavor profiles of the dishes she constructs. Her feed is the perfect mix of cannabis info, delectable pictures of food, and helpful tips for canna-cooking.


Imani Gandy & Jessica Pieklo

With everything happening with our government, it can be confusing what is accurate when it comes to the actual law. Following both Imani Gandy and Jessica Pieklo, both legal experts for Rewire News, will help you have a better understanding of all things law. In addition to the legal talk, you'll enjoy Pieklo's beautiful photos of Colorado (where she lives) and Gandy's masterful ability to take down trolls.

Ashley Nicole Black

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.
