Fiercely Feminist Valentines For 2017 To Send Everyone In Your Squad

Valentine's Day isn't just the perfect time to let that ~special someone~ in your life know that you care, but to reach out to everyone in your circle and spread the love — and no time has that been more necessary than the turbulent year that has been 2017 so far. If you're looking for a fun and timely feminist Valentine for 2017 that you can send not just your main bae, but your sisters, your friends, your mom, and that adorable puppy you keep secretly Instagram story-ing on your way to work, then you've come to the right place.

There are so many strong women to draw inspiration from during times like these, from Linda Sarsour to Janet Mock to Beyonce to countless women, both alive and dead, that there is no better time to celebrate the strong women in your life than right now. So whether you share these awesome valentines on Twitter, tag your squad in them on Insta, or print them out and give them in person old school-style, make sure everyone gets the message loud and clear: we have to stick together and fight for the next four years and all the years beyond it, and there is no force quite as powerful as the love we have for each other.
