I’m convinced that you can find anything on Reddit. Beauty advice? Yup. Discussions about your favorite TV shows? Yes. Threads upon threads of random information about a certain celebrity? Sure.
One of my go-tos are feminist subreddits that are both educational and entertaining. These threads contain discussions and links to articles about women’s rights and misogyny, as well as memes ridiculing the sexist comments women receive from various people.
If you’re looking for productive subreddits to follow this Women’s Month, list these down:
I consider this the homebase for feminist topics, especially if you want to learn the basics of feminism. Here, you’ll usually find current events, historical facts and statistics related to women’s rights.
If you have any questions about feminism and other topics, you can ask them here. You can ask feminist Redditors about their take on issues like representation, abortion and men’s rights activists. Feel free to engage in discussions here and just downvote misogynistic responses.
This is where you can share sexist comments you received or posts you found online. They can either be funny or downright annoying. Members of this subreddit often give equally hilarious reactions to these posts.
According to this subreddit’s bio, r/WitchesVsPatriarchy is meant for women to uplift each other through humor and healing magic. Other than witch-related memes and guides, this was made to “embrace, and poke fun at, the mystical aspects of femininity that have been previously demonized and/or devalued by the patriarchy.”
r/MakeupAddiction isn’t an exclusively feminist subreddit, but I find it inspiring to see men and women talk about their love for makeup and share their #FOTDs (face of the day). It’s a positive community overall (or I haven’t seen any sh*tty comments yet) where members support each other and not shame looks. If that’s not empowerment, we don’t know what is.
