In a world where competing with one another has been increasingly normalized, we may often find ourselves short of good words for one another, whether it’s a compliment or a boost of encouragement.

Sadly, many women are no strangers to the debilitating effect of female rivalry. This happens anywhere, from the workplace to groups of girlfriends, and often we don’t really notice it until we start questioning why a previously wonderful friendship has turned sour.

In this context, the Women Posting Their W's project, which combines both Twitter and Instagram, feels like a much-needed breath of fresh air. “I just love when women [love] celebrating wins, big or small, iconic or ironic,” says their Twitter page’s description and 354.1k followers would totally agree.

Us too! We love seeing women giving thumbs up to other women for wins of any kind in a small yet empowering gesture, so let’s see some of the best achievements that make us proud to be women.

To find out more about this wonderfully wholesome project, Bored Panda reached out to the creator behind Women Posting Their W's Instagram and Twitter pages. The author, who introduced herself as “just a woman online” told us that she is busy running her personal Twitter account and working several jobs.

“Honestly, I wasn't too interested in creating any other pages to keep up with because I don't have very much time throughout my day. But there's this Twitter account that is awful and misogynistic, @womenpostingls, that posts just tweets and stories of women just existing really as an 'L.'”

What a legend.

The author, who was really frustrated with that account, explained further: “He's posted things like a woman crying after not being able to conceive a child as an L, and even a woman being sexually assaulted as an L.”

Moreover, “That account has been around since October 2020, and I was hoping it'd either get suspended for the constant targeted harassment of women he posted and would send his followers after, or for his constant retweeting back and forth between that and his personal page, but unfortunately the page persisted, and I kept seeing negativity against women day after day.”

In the light of this frustration, the author of Women Posting Their W's realized it “was really time someone made a positive space for women to celebrate women. And I did it.”

When it comes to spreading the wholesome message behind the project, the author hopes to show that “we should appreciate and celebrate people more, and particularly women who continue to face harassment and abuse and misogyny throughout all walks of life, especially on the internet.”

Some people are f****d in the head to think anyone wants unsolicited sexual images.

“On my personal page, I receive threats all the time. I get unsolicited dick pics. I even got one on this account,” she said and added: “And sure, women should be celebrated on their own, and it shouldn't have to be a celebration BECAUSE of anything.”

According to the creator of Women Posting Their W's, “as long as this hate against women persists, I want to create an even stronger and louder force of positivity for women.” She concluded that “even if WomenPostingLs or misogyny disappears, if ever, this page will still be around to validate and uplift women.”

Why do people seem to overlook racism against Asians? It is becoming ever more prevalent in the US and really needs nipping in the bud. It is disgusting. All racism is disgusting.
