18 Fierce ADHD Women to Follow on Instagram this International Women’s Day

The ADHD Women Who Are Trailblazing on Instagram

As we step into Women's History Month and approach International Women’s Day, it's time to shine a spotlight on the incredible women who are not only navigating the complexities of ADHD but are also using their experiences to empower and educate others. The under-diagnosis of ADHD in women has long been an issue, often due to gender bias in the medical community and societal expectations.

However, the narrative is slowly changing, thanks in part to social media platforms where women with ADHD are sharing their stories, challenges, and triumphs, making others feel seen and less alone.

Following diverse perspectives on ADHD is crucial for understanding the full spectrum of experiences and challenges faced by those living with ADHD. It helps in breaking down stereotypes and promoting a more inclusive understanding of neurodiversity. Social media, particularly Instagram, has emerged as a powerful tool for community building, offering support and resources to those who may have felt isolated in their experiences. With that in mind, this post introduces some of the top neurodivergent women on Instagram.

I know I’m cheating a bit since Jessica is a YouTube sensation that you likely know about already (if you don’t—head to How to ADHD on YouTube now!). Her channel’s content is literally prescribed by doctors and other healthcare providers as the main source of digestible psycho-education, and spans almost every ADHD topic under the sun. I recently listened to her book, also conveniently called How to ADHD, and cried multiple times from how much I related to her early experiences of undiagnosed ADHD.

These women’s contributions to Instagram and beyond are not only changing the narrative around ADHD but also building bridges of understanding, support, and empowerment for those navigating similar journeys. By sharing their lived experiences, these women are dismantling stereotypes, fostering inclusivity, and highlighting the intersectionality within the ADHD community. They illustrate the strength found in vulnerability, the importance of community support, and the transformative power of embracing one's true self.

This Women's History Month, let's commit to amplifying the voices of women with ADHD, supporting their work, and recognizing their contributions to our understanding of neurodiversity. By following and engaging with these fierce women, we join a movement towards greater awareness, acceptance, and action in the face of ADHD and beyond.
