Girls are conditioned from a young age to view other women as competition rather than a support system. We are taught that there simply aren’t enough jobs, opportunities, and sexual partners to go around, so we frequently avoid trusting other females. That’s why it’s so heartening to see women defying this outdated and regressive stereotype to lift up and support other women without question.

“Supporting other women” can mean a variety of things — it can mean offering words of encouragement to women you barely know, it can mean sitting next to another woman on public transit when a man is bothering her, or it can simply mean happily making makeup recommendations in the women’s restroom of a club. Regardless of how you do it, offering support to other women alleviates these imagined competition narratives and replaces them with much more positive vibes. Here are some wholesome, pure and altogether inspiring tweets to remind everybody that, when women support other women, we all win.
