#FeministNewYearsResolutions Perfectly Reminds Us What Women Want In 2015


Should old acquaintance be forgot, and never brought to mind? Only if they always tell you to smile.

Feeling like this New Year's celebration called for a feminist twist, writer and feminist Ijeoma Oluo took to Twitter to voice exactly what she hopes to achieve in 2015. And it didn't have to do with going to the gym more, being kinder or any of the other generic resolutions we so often see. Instead, Oluo created the #FeministNewYearsResolution hashtag and hilariously reminded us what feminists really hope to accomplish this upcoming year.

As feminist hashtags often do, #FeministNewYearsResolution picked up steam and others tweeted how they resolved to be better feminists in 2015. From the earnest to the satirical to the satirically earnest, here are some of our favorite #FeministNewYearResolutions tweets:
