Cosmo Gave These Male Emojis a Fun, Feminist Makeover!

Because ONLY male astronauts and bikers? Sexist AF!

Most Popular

It's true—emojis are sexist. So, Cosmo got illustrator Divya Tak to create some realistic, women-centric emojis (and they're awesome to say the least)!

How would a girl say 'I want to be an astronaut' in emoji? She can't. Because it doesn't exist. In fact, there isn't a single 'activity' emoji with a female version—except a receptionist and a bride. Which is why it's hardly a surprise that when sanitary napkin brand, Always, asked young girls if they thought emojis represented them during their #LikeAGirl campaign, the answer was  'No'. So we decided to create some of our own. Lose the pink and hair flips—it's 2016 people. Girl power all the way!

Come on! We feared the deep end of the pool just the same. Just make sure you draw on a pretty suit.

The basketball player

There's a Women's National Basketball Association (WNBA) in case you didn't know. Pity there isn't an emoji!

The detective

Sure, Sherlock Holmes was pretty cool, but didn't you ever read Nancy Drew?  'Detective' was a serious career choice. Ask any girl.

The paramedic

Seriously? We don't remember Florence Nightingale being a man. So, this one's a given. Plus, Grey's Anatomy!

The horse-rider

Studies suggest that there are actually more female riders than men. Guess nobody told the emoji guys that!

The cop

Surprising that this one doesn't exist already. Um, hello? Melissa McCarthy and Sandra Bullock in The Heat. Totally bad*ss!

The skier

It's a recreational activity, for crying out loud. Like walking. We're definitely rooting for this one.

The cyclist

Last time we checked, a bicycle didn't care if you were a boy or a girl. About time emojis fixed that.
