It’s a tough time to be a woman right now. Our political leaders have just laughed in our faces, mocked our pain, and given the middle finger to equality. Meanwhile, we’re forced to watch another entitled, rich, white man rise to the top. Blegh.
We’re vulnerable, angry, and fed the fuck up. Our rage is at peak level, but so is the sadness. We’re basically walking around ready to either burst into flames or sobs at any moment.
So circle up, friends. Because women supporting women is about the most badass thing we can do right now. And if you need proof, look no further than Twitter.
First off, we’re never too young for #girlpower.
Once was out for lunch with my 2yo. This jerk was complaining about his female boss. Little one slammed her hand down on the table, pointed at him and yelled ‘That’s not very nice’. He shut up. I have been learning from her ever since. #girlssupportinggirls #fuckpoliteness

And we’re there for each other during those tricky times.
If a girls asks me for a tampon and I don't have one for her, best believe we bouta search the entire vicinity together to find her a tampon

And when we need a little help from our friends (or a stranger).
Walked into a bathroom at the club, saw a security guard harassing this chick so I’m like “hey girl, I’ve been looking for you everywhere the bands about to start” took her hand and we left. Never seen her before in my life #girlssupportinggirls

We’ve got each other’s back.
the girl in front of me in the lecture was watching grey’s anatomy, looked back and saw me staring so she put on the subtitles.
girls support girls.

We are always looking out for each other.
A man plainly followed me onto my bus. Woman came to sit by me & asked if I knew he was following me. She offered to get off at my stop w me

We know when one of us needs a pick me up…
When a group of teenage girls stop you at the convenience store to tell you that your highlight is popping and that you're gorgeous there are still good people out there 😭#girlssupportinggirls

And when the times comes to unleash our fierce, badass rage on the world, we know what to do.

And we’re there with reinforcements.
I use a nice gloss called YOU SHOULD SMILE MORE.— Lisa Braun Dubbels (@lisadubbels) October 2, 2018
I use a shade called RAGE and a blusher called BURN IT DOWN.— Lisa Braun Dubbels (@lisadubbels) September 28, 2018
We’re ON IT.
I have the same trouble but with eyeliner. Apparently rosewater makes an excellent make up fixer but it's about time, see you on the battlefield, sisters.— Deadly Knitshade (@deadlyknitshade) October 2, 2018
Ooh I’ll try that! It might help with my concealer too. My biggest problem are my under-eye bags though. I am only just starting to learn how to minimize them it’s cold in some places maybe you could bring some knitted things to keep our sisters warm— Karen James ❄️ (@kejames) October 2, 2018
