Today, social media is immensely populated with strong and accomplished women who have defied the norms of gender discrimination, excelling in their respective professions, raising their voices for numerous causes and standing up for what they believe in.
Not only do these social media superwomen represent beauty, grace and compassion, but have also displayed their immense capacity for strength, intelligence and courage in all walks of life.
Journalists, writers, activists, or simply women who refuse to get bogged down and fight for the rights of others, social media superwomen like Faye Dsouza, Sushma Swaraj, Sagarika Ghose, JK Rowling are using social media to speak their mind.
If you aren’t already, you certainly need to follow these social media superwomen and watch how their efforts are making the world, a slightly better place. Not only are they doing emphatically well in their own lines of work, but are using social media to spread the word even further. From supporting their compatriots to teaching bullies a lesson, and unabashedly reporting and critiquing society, these women are an inspiration not just for women, but for all of us.

The Harry Potter novelist is known to destroy Twitter trolls. Also one of her most preferred object of criticism is Donald Trump and his questionable actions, tweets and more. JK Rowling is known to own people on Twitter with grace and no mercy.
The Lipstick Under My Burkha actress is not only bold in her choice of films, but also gives precisely zero number of damns when it comes to living life her own way. She boldly puts up pictures that aren’t ‘perfect’, using her stardom to make women all over believe that real beauty is confidence.
She stood up to the trolls who body shamed her with a hilarious video.
Chrissy Teigen has many things in abundance, but the most prominent ones on display are sass and comebacks. So many of her social media posts are iconic that publishers have series of articles about her owning trolls who think they can get away with nasty tweets to celebrities.
Twinkle Khanna has not only enjoyed successful stints in her professional life as a writer, columnist and interior designer but has a massive social media fan following for her badassery when it comes to speaking up on important issues.
