7 Fabulous Women You Should Follow On Twitter
I have a wretched case of writer's block, so instead of getting increasingly frustrated because I HAVE WRITER'S BLOCK, I'll share some of the coolest women I follow on Twitter.
These women are funny, informative, sarcastic, feminist, intelligent, witty, charming and they inspire me every day.
Here they are in no particular order:
1. feminist next door: @emrazz
Her Twitter bio: "Your favorite friendly feminist. Corrector of racists, chauvinists & pretend lawyers. Promotor of logic, reason & gratuitous snark. Will tweet for mini muffins." Not only is she a fierce feminist who takes no shit. One of her many talents is slaying misogynists:

“Brock Turners grow up to be Brett Kavanaughs who make the rules for Brock Turners.”
2. Molly Jong-Fast:@MollyJongFast
You probably already follow her, but in case you've been under a rock for a few years... She's an author (The Social Climber's Handbook, Girl [Maladjusted] and Normal Girl), a mom and she describes herself left of center. She's liberal but she's respected from prominent folks on both sides of the isle. She recently penned a must-read op-ed in the Wall Street Journal about a late term abortion she didn't want. Read it HERE. She's also endlessly entertaining.

“This is my son. He’s a large adult holding an enormous gun. Sometimes he kills elephants for fun. Is he even divorced yet? He thinks he’s the future of the Republican Party. He once dmed with Julian Assange. #HimToo”
3. Kristen Johnston:@thekjohnston
Author of "GUTS," and star of 3rd Rock From The Sun, The Exes and CBS's Mom. I've never met her, but she's one of my favorite people to follow on Twitter. Maybe it's because we're both sarcastic and tall, maybe it's because she's going to be on my podcast in December, but either way, she's honest, hilarious and has a ginormous heart. She supports other women and I love her (but not in a creepy, stalkery kind of way).

“Tell us again how she’s a liar looking for a payoff. https://t.co/ldKpL9Rghq”
4. Imani Gandy:@AngryBlackLady
Imani is the Senior Legal Analyst at Rewire News. She's highly intelligent and her tweets are a mix of fun personal anecdotes, politics, humor, sarcasm and intersectional feminism. She's not a big fan of Bernie Sanders.

“I need to point out again that the issue with bernie’s comments weren’t that there were racists about that he declined to call racist, but that he was presented with a scenario that expressly involved racism and he went out of his way to say it wasn’t racist. https://t.co/o3fswHgE7V”
5. Jen Kirkman:@JenKirkman
Jen is funny, funny, funny. Did I say she was funny? She's also whip-smart and when she's not being funny, she tweets about politics and her unique perspective on life. She has two Netflix specials: Just keep Livin'? and I'm Gonna Die Alone. Both are HYSTERICAL. She's the author of two NYT bestsellers titled, I Can Barely Take Care of Myself: Tales From a Happy Life Without Kids and I Know What I'm Doing -- and Other Lies I Tell Myself: Dispatches from a Life Under Construction. She also mocks Trumpco.

“Code Red. Code Red. FLOTUS said “holiday season” - she’s trying to subvert the word Christmas in this sentence. I repeat. This is not a drill.”
6. Caroline Orr: @RVAwonk
Caroline is a Behavioral Scientist and a writer/editor at Shareblue Media. Her feed is political and she breaks down complicated news stories making them easier to understand. She isn't always humorous, but when she is, she kills it.

“zomg. "Hours before Russian hacking operations targeted Hillary Clinton’s campaign in the spring of 2016, WikiLeaks discussed offering a monetary reward for transcripts of her speeches at Goldman Sachs." Those speeches were included in the 1st day of the Podesta email leaks. https://t.co/Su4cup3DOW”
7. Leah Torres, MD:@LeahNTorres
Leah is an OBGYN who's great at "docsplaining" abortion to the perpetually clueless. She's endlessly patient as conservative trolls throw all kinds of epithets her way, and when she makes docsplaining videos, you can just tell she's got a calming bedside manner. I adore her. Oh yeah and she was on my podcast. Listen HERE.

“You know why “prenatal care” is a thing? Because pregnancy risks people’s health and lives. Therefore, if you think prenatal care is health care, then abortion is also health care. It’s not an opinion: it’s fact.”
