Posted on April 19 2018
Instagram is a powerful tool, there’s no denying it. From memes and videos to celebrities and artists, there’s always something there to keep us entertained for minutes (sometimes hours) on end. But in between another version of the yoddeling Walmart kid and a cute dog picture, it’s inspiring and empowering to scroll through a post that reminds us of how amazing it is to be a woman. They boost us up on a bad day, they make us smile and feel powerful on a good day, and we instantly share them with our girlfriends.
Here’s a list of 6 female driven Instagram accounts that make our day, every day.Arielle Estoria (@arielleestoria)
We’ve had our eye on Arielle for quite a while. Writer, speaker, teacher, and all around beautiful human being inside and out, her Instagram is visually stunning. But there’s more to it. Her accompanying captions are part reflexion, part story, part poetry, but mostly empowering and inspiring. She also has one of the most contagious smiles!

Pink Bits (@pink_bits)
“Illustrating the bits and shapes we're told to hide” – that’s what Pink Bits does, and what she does stunningly well. Taking pictures of women and drawing them in her personal style, she includes all the things that we might be scared to show or embarrassed to admit, like our scars, our little pudge, our pimples, our stretch marks… you name it. She turns it around and makes them into things that are part of us, that make us unique, but that don’t define our accomplishments and our worth.

With historical snippets and captioned screenshots from our favorite female characters, they’re the Instagram page that’ll make you feel powerful and march onto the streets and fight for what you believe in.

Exactly what it says it is. An illustration based page accompanied by one liners to remind us to be gentler to ourselves, and others. Whether it’s being period positive, being ok with our anger, or taking time for ourselves, there’s endless amounts of recipes that are relatable to all of us, no matter where we’re from or what our age is.
