When it comes to gender stereotyping, it's safe to say that "emojis" are *probably* not at the top of any feminist's list of priorities. Still, it's impossible to deny that these little emoticons are an integral part of how we communicate in today's society, which is why it's always sad to see that the options for female emojis are limited to a bride, tap-dancing playboy bunnies, a girl getting a haircut, and sexy flamenco dancers. 💁
So, the geniuses over at Makers (opens in new tab) created a collection of "femojis" that include badass ladies we love and that can be used in a variety of occasions.
For example, when you want to convey that you own your life choices, there's Lena Dunham.
When you want to tell your friends that you'd rather spend a night in, there's Taylor Swift.
When a guy is mainsplaining something to you, nothing shuts him up like a good Ruth Bader Ginsburg.
If you're friend needs a little inspiration in overcoming adversity, there's NASA astronaut Mae Jemison.
You can basically use Oprah for any scenario.
Sending Ellen is a great way of saying "cheer up and laugh it off."
And Mindy Kaling is the best reminder that you're a HBIC with an awesome sense of humor.
And when you're just feeling generally fierce, there is the one and only Queen Bey.
Can we please have these on our iPhones asap?
