In this week’s edition of #TeamFemale Insta-stalk, we’re zooming in on our favorite celebs post-US election, in what seems to be the most talked about election in decades!
Most celebs expressed hope despite the results, some took on a lighter turn and poked fun at it, while some were saddened by the polls.
Many of us aren’t sure what to do after the election, but now more than ever it’s important for us to come together and take action to work for the America we want. That’s why we’re launching #HopefulHippies, and I’m asking you to get involved in your own community and make a commitment to the issues you care about, whether it’s donating, volunteering or showing your support! I’m starting off by pledging to education, and I’m excited Happy Hippie will now be supporting classroom projects and schools with DonorsChoose!! If you need ideas to get you started, check out HappyHippies.org to find local opportunities near you supporting the issues we care about. Share your pledge to take action in your community using #HopefulHippies. Can’t wait to see yours, I’ll be reposting some of my favorite ones! #strongertogether
"The worst thing that can happen in a democracy—as well as in an individual’s life—is to become cynical about the future and lose hope."

In an effort to be sensitive to the disparate beliefs and political leanings of everyone here, I have done my best to keep my posts focused on the importance of voting during this election. Until now. Yes, I am voting for a Nasty Woman. Yes, I am voting for someone who as a private citizen refused to let disabled children live a life in the shadows and fought to get them rights and representation. Yes, I am voting for the former First Lady of Arkansas who championed a program (HIPPY) which sent teachers into the homes of underprivileged families to train parents in school preparedness and literacy, a program which became a model for other states. Yes, I am voting for the former First Lady who, in 1995, when it was insanely unpopular to express feminist views, stood in front of the world and said in that particular, driven Midwestern lilt of hers “Human rights are women’s rights, and women’s rights are human rights.” [Now in 2016, we say "(duh) yeah" and we feel entitled to that attitude in no small part because of the truth expressed by a brave woman in power.] Yes, I am voting for the former senator from NY who worked across party lines to get first responders the support they needed long after the towers fell on that tragic day. And Yes, I am voting for the former Secretary of State who was in the room when the particular terror of Osama Bin Laden was finally, finally silenced. Yes, yes, YES I am voting for @HillaryClinton, the most qualified candidate our country has ever had the opportunity to vote for. Hill-yes #Imwithher, and I hope you are too. #VOTELIKEITMATTERSCUZITDOES
What are your thoughts on the US election and result? We think it will be a HUGE historic moment in the next few years nonetheless.
