Are you into memes about Tina Fey eating cheese? What about timely commentary on institutionalized sexism? If so, this account is for you.
Ever since the living sunburn/oversized peach bumbling over things in the US attacked the mayor of San Juan as a ‘nasty woman’, we women have been reclaiming the term as a big ‘fuck you’ to dudes who think women should be quiet and complacent. It’s basically a compliment, even, and refers to women who are outspoken, funny, and don’t give a rat’s ass but fitting into archaic gender stereotypes. So today, we bring you @nastywomenquotes: an Instagram account whose v. on point memes and general decent quotes make us remember why reclaiming the term is important in 2017.
Sometimes, they’re posting pretty legit commentary about pressing issues like the wage gap, institutionalized discrimination against women and the general deterioration of democracy as we know it. And other times, they’re just posting memes of Tina Fey eating cheese or Gal Gadot giving annoying journalists the stink eye. Whatever works, yo.
So whether you have a secret soft spot for cheesy inspirational – don’t lie, even our general cynicism can’t always trump the effects of a Michelle Obama quote – or are simply here for the memes, this account will make your day. Nasty women FTW!
