We’ve picked out Instagram pages that will brighten your news feed while getting the message through loud and clear. Here’s a list of lit AF Instagram pages that feature the true essence of feminism while being super empowering:
A page featuring inspiring and badass South Asian women all around the globe. Not only does it represent how fierce women can be, but also highlights their softer side.
#TINTIMONIALS: We love the fierce style of these three UK-based, Sri Lankan #TintGirls, and when they shared their thoughts on changing the beauty standards in their culture, we we’re so here for it: _ “Coming from Sri Lankan community, being dark has always been a issue. If you are dark finding a life partner is hard. If you are dark you can’t wear bright colors. If you are dark you are not beautiful compared to fair looking girls. I want to change that mindset – I believe all shades beautiful.” – Miya Kalith, teacher. _ “I wish all women would support each other rather than compete to bring others down.” – Sajitha Kalith, microbiologist. _ “I wish women in my culture would appreciate and love the skin they are in, regardless of how dark or light they are! Accept your individuality and stop comparing.” -Thakshayini Selvachandran, finance officer and singer. _ #livetinted #tintfam #brownskin #srilankan #brownisbeautiful
For all the beautiful shades in between. Because we do, after all, need to celebrate our skin. We’ve been told for way too long that it needs to be fair and lovely. Bohot hogaya.

“I'm here to change my community's destiny” says Pakistan's first transgender news anchor Marvia Malik ? A local news channel claims to have made history by hiring the country’s first transgender news anchor. Having aired for the first time in 10 years, Kohenoor News re-launched on Friday with an elaborate ceremony where it announced Marvia Malik as a news anchor – apparently a first in Pakistan’s media history.
A page created by South Asians, for South Asians – in favor of paratha rolls, not gender roles.
Naam hee kaafi hai. It’s all about building women up, highlighting how they’re allies and…MEMES.
What’s your super power? Because being a woman is nothing short of being a badass.
Last night’s #MeToo event in New York City was everything we could have imagined and more. Regardless of the date change due to last week’s snowstorm, the room was filled with many familiar faces and even more unfamiliar ones, but the solidarity was the same. Every person came with an open heart to listen to stories by courageous women — all from different walks of lives — but with one thing in common — all were sexually harassed or assaulted by a man. The incident could have happened more than a decade or two ago, but they’ve all experienced the pain and trauma that comes with #MeToo survivors. ?? • We are grateful and will forever appreciate our panelists for courageously sharing their stories. Your words speak volume and because of you, women in the room didn’t feel alone. ✊? • Now, we want to give more safe spaces to #SouthAsian women all across the country and world, so we are hoping to bring this discussion to a location near you. ???? • Nothing of this magnitude is done without a team, so our sincerest thanks to the #browngirl event managers @sarag217 and @jennykad, our ceo @tsakhuja_walia, all of the panelists (seen above), especially @karunachani, who approached us with the idea to host an event like this, and the moderator for the evening, executive director of @sakhinyc @kavmehra, who eloquently handled the discussion with her soft-spoken demeanor and warm heart. ???? • A big thank you to our vendors: @indikitch for the yummy samosas and lassis, wine by @sufiwines, delicious desserts by @ @goodiebox_bakeshop, and our photographers @manasavedula and @tarasharmaphoto for capturing the evening. ? • • We are proud to donate a large part of the proceeds from last night’s event to @sakhinyc — a domestic violence nonprofit working to end violence against women. ?? • • ? @manasavedula | Stay tuned for photos more via BrownGirlMagazine.com.
