The hardships of being a woman have been documented since the dawn of the world. It's always a damsel in distress taking care of her husband, children, household, all the while looking after herself to comply with the beauty standards of the age. The many worries stacked on top of her fragile shoulders cannot compare in their severeness though to the general sexism beliefs about women and their bodies, to this day making it seem as though us ladies, do not own our bodies, but rather are here for men's entertainment.

Now, feminism and feminist views are not something that we usually associate with funny memes and jokes, but humor is often the best medium to convey cold hard facts and the ugly truth.

There are plenty of tweets about feminism that are so funny, even the manliest men laugh at them. But the online world expands way beyond Twitter, so Bored Panda has decided to gather some of the best feminist and sexist memes from all over the internet. Pregnancy struggles, anti-harassment clothes, this list features it all, and then some more of these funny jokes. Even Simone de Beauvoir would be laughing at these sexism examples. Scroll down to check it out and upvote the best memes by these brave and funny women.

I am sure that if men would have menstruation it would be much easier to get sick leave from the work and also most painkiller drugs would be available without the prescription.

Why would you show only fictional characters? These mean nothing. Show the female Russian snipers of WWII, show real female vikings - fictional characters are meaningless.

I've been harassed once when I was a week from giving birth to my son. I had edema everywhere, a huuuuuge belly, and I was red from walking for an 1h (trying to get the labor to start). I was wrap in a coat Hell to big for me. I'm not sure this outfit would be 100% harassment-proofed

Well, you know what they say... "The way to hell is paved with good intentions". You might mean well when you shout behind her back words like "hey, sexy! You're so fuckable! Where you going?", but you have to consider her stance as well.

I hate it when people try to tell others "aw, but you'd look so much prettier if you smiled!" Like, cool story, Karen/Steve, but guess what? I've had a rough day and I'm not in a great mood, so I hardly give a damn if I look 'pretty' or not, right now.

I never say, why don't you smile? I usually ask why are you down, usually because I can tell the facial expressions of people and can tell when they are sad, then I try and cheer them up, if it doesn't work, I leave them alone, like a nice person, like a person should, I don't harrass, i don't cat call, and I don't sexually abuse women or other people, this site is a perfect representation of the stereotypes of men actually.

hmm im a girl and i dont understand this, to me it sounds like an awkward conversation opening, and only gross if comes from a gross person's mouth (which anything he/she says would turn gross anyways)..... So why is this sexist again? If you're in bad mood you probably would find it as annoying as "You're beautiful, can we talk?" , and if you're in normal/happy mood, wouldn't you just find it awkward? Like, the person is trying to strike a flirty conversation and failed miserably, but probably didn't mean anything like "you're a woman, you should smile when you see me" ... or maybe because i dont live in US so I've never found people forcing me to smile to them.

When I had just started to date my future hubby a male friend got his heart broken by a mutual 'friend'. I went to his house and he literally cried on my shoulder. When I returned to my then BF he got shitty and insinuated that I slept with him/shouldn't be helping him/etc. I turned to him and said that if I wanted to date my father I would live in Alabama and if he didn't think he could trust me he could leave. Whelp, we have been married for almost 18 years and he treats me like an adult...sooo, stand up for yourselves ladies!
