It’s Galentine’s Day, everyone. The day that you celebrate your female friendships and express your gratitude for the rad ladies in your life.
So because it’s Galentine’s Day, here is a small assortment of ladies out there that I’m thankful for:
She is my forever First Lady, and how cool is it that she showed up to the Grammys?
A big part of friendship is showing up for your girls—that’s why I was thrilled to be there for the one and only @aliciakeys at the #GRAMMYs. She is one of the most genuine and thoughtful people I know—there’s no one better to help us all celebrate the unifying power of music! pic.twitter.com/8cMhTmsClA— Michelle Obama (@MichelleObama) February 11, 2019
She’s rad, what can I say? She fights the good fight on everyone’s behalf
Don’t mess with our future.— Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (@AOC) February 13, 2019
When it comes to climate, it’s all our lives at stake. The younger you are, the more consequences you’ll see.
It’s life and death for us.
And we will fight like it. https://t.co/jlyFGkzCUW
This isn’t just because I loved Widows, but you guys I loved Widows. Viola’s Twitter account is such a positive, fun account to follow, and every time she pops up I smile.
I mean, we covered this just last night.
The below tweet speaks for itself why she is such a delight. And also she live-tweeted some of the Twilight saga movies, and I never felt more kinship to a famous person before.
LOLOL. On this episode of RHOBH a chyron for some random guy reads “charcuterie expert.” Reality TV is the greatest human endeavor. Don’t @ me.— roxane gay (@rgay) February 13, 2019
Can I be honest here? I don’t really care about Marvel movies (plot twist!) That all changes with Captain Marvel, largely in part because Brie seems like she talks the talk and walks the walk.

If lgbtq+ people are expressing their pain, their trauma, their experiences…maybe just try and listen? Open your heart, stop being defensive and have compassion. It’s a beautiful and life changing feeling, empathy.— Ellen Page (@EllenPage) February 9, 2019
Much love truly to all.
The Lady Overlords
Awww, no, I’m not just trying to gain brownie points in case I ever need to transport a heavy, rolled up carpet in the middle of the night. They’re a really rad group of women that I’m lucky to be associated with, so Happy Galentine’s Day, ladies! (Not the men. They know what they did.)
