Many are familiar with Lilly “Superwoman” Singh’s over the top hilarious YouTube videos, but she has recently switched gears to tackle the issue of female empowerment by using her platform as a well known internet sensation to catch the attention of her viewers.
She has an astounding 7.4 million subscribers to her channel, within which 84% are women. This comes out to be about 6 million women across the world that tune in to her videos and can be reached via YouTube. Lilly Singh has made it a personal mission to spread positivity and love from one woman to the next, with the help of many of her friends on the internet, including Pretty Little Liars actress Shay Mitchell, Lilly has started a web wide movement.
Lilly began a hashtag movement by making a YouTube video to end girl on girl hate, in which she goes on to state that women do amazing things on a daily, but will constantly hate on one another. She states “I don’t know who came up with this idea that it’s cool to hate on other girls, cause it’s not.” Singh wants other women across the world to use the hashtag #GirlLove to not only end the negativity against women, but also to go one step ahead and to compliment a woman they admire to spread the act of girl on girl love.
Not only will this movement help women empower one another, but with every view this video receives, funds will be raised to be donated to the Malala Fund, which works hard to provide education to girls.
Since launching the campaign, Singh has been receiving an endless amount of support from many media members and celebrities, such as Bollywood superstar Priyanka Chopra Supermodel and Tyra Banks.
To contribute to the movement, go onto any social media network and use the hashtag #GirlLove to show love and admiration for other women, and be sure to watch Lilly “Superwoman” Singh’s video to raise money for the Malala Fund.
