How often have you found your jaw on the floor while you’re at the theatre, watching your favourite superheroines kick ass on the big screen, and look ferociously captivating while doing so? If you’re, like me, have no regard for your respective jaws, you need to follow the DC Extended Universe and Marvel Cinematic Universe superwomen on Instagram.
Personally, that was my face for the entirety of watching the Wonder Woman movie, and while I have been hooked on Black Widow since Iron Man 2, sadly Scarlett Johansson is not on Instagram! Worry not because if you haven’t had enough, the superwomen on Instagram are absolutely killing it.
I can never have enough and therefore I re-administer myself with generous amounts of Wonder Woman, Mera, some Valkyrie and Lady Sif and oh dear! There are so many of these physical manifestations of Goddesses, all badass and elegant, at the same time no less. When I first saw Gal Gadot in Dawn of Justice, this was literally me btw…
And any time I see her pop up on my Instagram feed, there I go again. Check out all the beautiful superwomen on Instagram making us lose out collective hearts and sanity!
Forgive me for being too obvious with the beginning of this list, for you know not how true love works!

Women are important. Not hollywood women, not younger women, not lighter, or darker, or bigger, or smaller, or greater, or smarter, or weaker, stronger…. but women. Just women. Women. We matter and we need our voices to be heard. We need to put an end to abuse, sexual harassment, inequality. And we can only do that if we stand together and speak up. #whywewearblack #timesup — La mujer es importante. No una mujer de Hollywood, ni una mujer más joven, ni más ligera, ni más oscura, ni más grande o más pequeña, más alta o más inteligente, ni más débil, ni más fuerte …una mujer. Una mujer. Mujer, Nosotros importamos y necesitamos que nuestras voces sean escuchadas. Tenemos que poner fin al abuso, el acoso sexual, la desigualdad. Y solo podemos evitar eso si nos unimos y hablamos. #whywewearblack #timesup #porquevestimosdenegro #llegoeltiempo
