Oh yeah, she said it! This week wonderful women were tweeting about calling out men in the DMs, Halloween, and the burdens of being a woman.
When a creepy guy slides into your DM’s, do you ever want to mess with them a little bit?
A lot of women do, if only to make sure they stop doing the off-putting behavior of messaging random people on the internet with sexual thoughts or comments.
And across the internet this week, women everywhere were sharing screenshots of them calling out these men online – it was beautiful. There was also an instance of a woman calling out a bad man in real-life – Harvey Weinstein,
Add to that a whole lot of tweets about Halloween, the highs and lows of adulthood and general female empowerment, and this week really did have it all!
As we always do, we’ve collected the best tweets of this week for your viewing pleasure.
So relax and get ready to round out the spooky season with the best tweets of the week…

8. We stan these two strong, female icons
When I saw Oprah interview Michelle Obama, Oprah asked how Michelle got over feeling intimidated sitting at big tables filled with smart, powerful men and Michelle said, “You realize pretty quickly that a lot of them aren’t that smart.” I think about that quote every single day.
