Feminist Faves: Girls to the Front 

Welcome back to Feminist Faves, a monthly roundup of our favorite feminist-forward content on social media.

From the long-awaited Barbenheimer weekend, to the kick-off of the Women’s World Cup, here’s what we’ve been loving on social media lately! 

Girl Dinner 

This has to be my favorite TikTok trend so far this year! Women posting their craziest dinner combinations to ensure they stay fed—however they damn please—is the best, most authentic representation I’ve felt in a while. Sometimes, you have to work with what you’ve got! canv

Check out one here and be sure to click the sound for some hilarious reinterpretations.

The U.S. Women’s National Team in New Zealand 

Jointly hosted by Australia and New Zealand, the Women’s World Cup kicked off this week. We’re (obviously) rooting for Team USA—here’s to women’s sports and the record-breaking attendance we’ve seen so far this year! 

This Barbie Is…

The release of Barbie has made way for tons of discussion around what the doll means for people, especially young women, around the world. We loved seeing Nobel Prize winner Malala Yousafzai, who also means so much to women around the world, and her husband in the iconic Barbie boxes at the movies. She’s everything, he’s just Ken!

Dear Film Bros, 

Have you ever been accused of not getting a Tarantino or Nolan movie because you’re a woman? I love this changed narrative calling out the universal experience of film-bro degradation directed towards men who are criticizing Barbie in bad faith. 


In my film bro era and I will be insufferable #BarbieMovie

OOTD’s Have Never Been Cuter 

I absolutely loved this father-daughter duo’s outfit-of-the-day video! It’s always so heartwarming to fathers empower their daughters and boost their confidence at a young age. The commenters are tearing up with me!

U.S. democracy is at a dangerous inflection point—from the demise of abortion rights, to a lack of pay equity and parental leave, to skyrocketing maternal mortality, and attacks on trans health. Left unchecked, these crises will lead to wider gaps in political participation and representation. For 50 years, Ms. has been forging feminist journalism—reporting, rebelling and truth-telling from the front-lines, championing the Equal Rights Amendment, and centering the stories of those most impacted. With all that’s at stake for equality, we are redoubling our commitment for the next 50 years. In turn, we need your help, Support Ms. today with a donation—any amount that is meaningful to you. For as little as $5 each month, you’ll receive the print magazine along with our e-newsletters, action alerts, and invitations to Ms. Studios events and podcasts.
