If you are a user of crowdsourced content-sharing site Reddit, you may have, at some point, stumbled across a vertical called “Upvoted Not Because Girl, But Because It Is Very Cool; However, I Do Concede That I Inititally Clicked Because Girl.

Essentially, it's a place to share photos and videos of talented women doing impressive things, from acrobatics to DIY projects to artwork.

In 2018, we've resolved to take a similar approach to the women we follow on Instagram. In other words: less twerking videos and bikinis, more intrigue and ingenuity. (Although we're certainly not going to discourage you from unfollowing feminist, model and sex-positivity advocate Emily Ratajkowski.)
