    Whether you proudly declare yourself a feminist or prefer to keep your views private, it's hard to ignore the cultural zeitgeist that is the current conversation about womanhood. Don't get us wrong: We're not saying that feminism wasn't a movement to be reckoned with prior to 2013. But with a new generation of thinkers, activists, and creatives taking up the mantle of women's rights, the movement has taken on a sense of vitality and a global scope — one that has surely been enhanced by the power of the Internet.

    New initiatives are underway to expand reproductive rights and address income inequality, while women continue to push for a bigger piece of the pie when it comes to media. From female-centric pop culture blogs and thought-provoking TV series to stand-up comedy and porn (yes, even porn!), there are plenty of women (and men) out there who are working to create a better world for women on a daily basis.

Click through to meet them all.
