Feminism on YouTube: 5 names you need to know

As time goes on, we’re seeing the power of YouTube and its community of talented creators grow and grow. Today we’re talking feminism, asking: Which YouTubers are engaging on the subject, passionate about their views and really know what they’re chatting about?

Read on for our look at just a handful of influential speakers on YouTube, featuring the lovely Laci Green and hilarious asdfmovie maker, Tomska.

Emma Blackery

If you watch YouTube and don’t know who Emma Blackery is, where have you been? Lovely Emma is a 23- year-old YouTuber who has been killing it on YouTube with comical videos where she plays two or more characters for her viewers.

Emma isn’t a big fan of Google+, you know..

Emma is also a singer and has shared her musical talent on YouTube with songs such as The Promise, Go The Distance and many more, including a topical song about Google+ back when it merged with YouTube. This YouTube star isn’t afraid of talking about touchy and personal topics such as mental health, sex and her old jobs.

Miss Blackery also has two other YouTube channels. The first, Boxes of Foxes, is targeted at teens and focuses on all things beauty. In the past, Emma has shared haul videos, makeup reviews and more. The last channel in her trio is BirdyBootswhere the entertainer plays many of the latest, most popular videogames such as The Sims and Grand Theft Auto V.

Hannah Hart

Hannah (known as MyHarto on YouTube) is the star behind My Drunk Kitchen, a series of videos where Hannah drinks and then cooks whilst slightly intoxicated, bringing plenty of laughs to online cooking.

Drink, cook, repeat.

Some episodes of the wacky show have been uploaded guest-starring other famous YouTube faces, including the likes of Tyler Oakley and Grace Helbig. The YouTuber also has another channel on which she talks more about her personal life and other topics such as sexuality, reminding us all that we should be equal no matter what.

Thomas ‘Tomska’ Ridgewell

Feminism isn’t just a movement and mindset for females to follow, because ultimately feminism means equality for all sexes.

Thomas, or Tomska, has mentioned in the past the importance of equality, especially on a creative platform such as YouTube. The YouTuber’s main channel consists of sketches, cartoons, advice clips and more. He has previously leant his opinion on issues related to mental health, with a focus on depression.

The Asdfmovie creator has mentioned previously that it’s hard to be taken seriously when struggling with mental health issues. Tomska also has DarkSquidge, a channel where he talks more openly without the comical persona featured on his main channel. This means raw, powerful videos.

Laci Green

Laci is arguably one of the most well-known feminists on YouTube, so we couldn’t possibly leave her out of today’s article. This YouTuber is passionate about issues related to the body and relationships and isn’t shy of issues that other vloggers would do their best to steer clear of.

The American vlogger is well known on YouTube for speaking out on gender equality. Even if it’s a taboo subject for some, we all need to know the ins and outs of sex somehow. Laci does a fantastic job of educating the masses on questions they’d be less willing to ask face-to-face with friends and family.


Bry is an Irish singer who has found fame through YouTube, leading onto festival dates and an album of his own. The performer, who used to be known on YouTube as Bribry (or Bribryontour), has sung a number of original songs and covered many recognised tunes.

This YouTuber recently went on tour with All Time Low and Twenty One Pilots and is well known for wearing makeup on camera and looking brilliant in the process! We salute you, Bry.
