In many ways, Emma Watson is the best kind of feminist icon. She acknowledges her privilege, is careful not to undermine other women's experience and uses her phenomenal platform as a badass feminist supergirl to speak out about the things that we've all been thinking.
Last week, her Vanity Fair cover hit headlines and saw her accused of being a 'bad feminist' (and a hypocrite, in the ensuing twitter spat with Piers Morgan). In classic Emma style, she hit back at critics who said she couldn't be a feminist and sexy, by retorting, "I don't know what my tits have to do with it!"
Damn right, Emma. And the fact is, there's a whole host of other feminist mavericks who've earned their credentials precisely because of their fearless, sorry-not-sorry promotion of their own sexuality. Strippers, activists, glamour models and porn-stars – nothing is off limits to 2017's sex savvy superwomen. If you're on board, and fancy an Instagram feed full of steamy lingerie shoots or some not-quite-NSFW illustrations, these are the accounts you need to be following.
Erica Lust is your go-to feminist porn producer, who set up her own company in response to how little she enjoyed watching mainstream offerings. Her account is full of cute selfies and sexy stills from her shoots.
Er, hotness alert! Tawny Taylor is anything but your typical glamour girl, championing tattoos, curves, and genuine gal pals (she's all about promoting her friends' projects to her 212k followers).
Amber Rose has had to battle sexist comments for her entire career (remember that twitter spat between Kanye and Wiz Kalifa?). But Amber's doing a slamming job of being a businesswoman, a mum, and prominent anti slut-shaming campaigner.
Karley Sciotino is THE voice of no-holes-barred sex positivity for twenty and thirty-something women. She's been making serious waves with her blog, slutever, since 2007, and now reports on everything sex for everyone from Vice to Vogue.
Another fearless feminist porn producer, Vex Ashley is to erotic films what Marc Jacobs is to S/S 2017. The work she does with production company Four Chambered Heart is ethereal and super hot, championing expert cinematography and diverse models.
Anonymous illustrator Petites Luxures has battled through her fair share of Instagram censorship warfare, but her strangely erotic line drawings are what keeps her 642k followers coming back for more.
One brave group of London-based strippers are standing up for sex workers rights through large scale campaigns, protests, and fun events. They're inclusive, educated and empowered, and their Instagram is a mix of live-action shots and promo for their events.
