6 Women to Follow On Instagram

Everyone is always looking for new people and accounts to follow on Instagram.  In honor of Women’s History Month, we’ve chosen six women with awesome Instagram accounts we think you should check out.

Mindy Kaling

The brilliant comedic writer behind The Mindy Project is always posting great behind-the-scenes photos of her incredible show wardrobe, but sometimes we get gems like these.  I think most of us can relate to that t-shirt.

Thanks @shopbando ❤

Annette Labedzki

This Canadian artist’s Instagram is filled with mostly videos of her mixing paint, which in theory sounds weird, but Labedzki’s video have an odd, calming hypnosis to them which can come in handy when you’re feeling stressed.  (Seriously, don’t knock it until you watch one.)

Nikki Glaser

We love Glaser because she never fails to make us laugh, but we adore her Instagram account because of her copious photos of her cute dog, Luigi.

No one is better. sorry.

Rachel Bloom

Like Kaling, Bloom’s brilliance of being the mind behind CW’s Crazy Ex-Girlfriend already makes her a great Instagram to follow, but she also likes to post fun messages to her fans, like this great piece of news in the video below.

Misty Copeland

Copeland being the first African American female Principal Dancer with the American Ballet Theatre is historic and inspiring, and her Instagram takes empowerment to another level.

WWE Glam Squad

When you think of the WWE, you don’t necessarily think of what goes on backstage away from the cameras and the hordes of fans, but one of the most fascinating parts of the traveling circus that is WWE is their team of makeup artists and hair stylists.  Their “Glam Squad” Instagram is full of all sorts of makeup looks and hair styles.  They’ll often list what products they use for certain looks, and they even have product giveaways!


Erica Banas is a lover of classic television and wishes tap dancing would make a serious comeback.
