There are so many hilarious women rocking it on Twitter every day. They talk about feminism, equality, raising empowered girls and speaking out for our rights — and somehow manage to make it all funny. With their words, they remind the world that girl power is nothing to mess with. These ladies of Twitter never disappoint and give us plenty to think (and laugh) about when it comes to girl power and life as a woman.
1. That’s not what mommy meant by having your voice heard, sweetie.
1day I'll be thankful my daughter is an independent iron willed human w/an unrelenting strong voice,but not today, not in this grocery store

Don’t you wish we could pick and choose when our daughters express themselves? At school? Yes. Someday at work? Absolutely. But not the grocery store. Never the grocery store.
2. Who run the world?
Men did not "give" women voting rights. They withheld them.
Then women fixed that shit.

Hell yes, we did.
3. *deep breaths*
"I'm raising strong women. I'm raising strong women. I'm raising strong women…"
*My mantra for when my daughters challenge me.*

There’s a fine line between discipline and quashing her little feminist spirit. Good luck trying to toe it for the next 18 years.
As a woman, three things are very important to me:
– eating yogurt
– dismantling the patriarchy

We need protein and healthy skin for when we take over, obviously.
5. How about that.
Idk I think feminism should be called something different like common sense or something

Anyone who says they don’t believe in feminism doesn’t know what feminism is.
6. It’s time.
ITEMS EVERY WOMAN SHOULD OWN:
-Little Black Dress
-Strappy s- ok now that the men have stopped reading, we revolt at dawn.

We might be adorably dressed for a fun night out, but don’t be fooled — we’re still plotting to take down the patriarchy.
7. Excellent question.
If it's so normal and well-intended, why don't men tell other men to smile?

And this is why we will always need feminism.
Men are strong cause they can lift heavy things. Women are strong cause they can grow & nourish life with our bodies & lift heavy things.

Women can give birth and carry $150 worth of groceries into the house in one trip. Beat that, bro.
9. Can we sit with her?
A 5-year-old stomped into a restaurant in a princess dress, held up her arms and shouted "I'M HERE." I just hired her to be my life coach.

Good to know the next generation of strong women is coming along nicely.
