    Abstract : In this study, I look at the content and interpretation of posts by a feminist meme account on Instagram called @thegirlslikeme, from the perspective of a sample size of Nigerian female followers through a focus group discussion, along with a visual social semiotic analysis of the posts. This study set out to answer three research questions:  i) How do the posts on TGLM use humor and wellness to portray feminism?  ii) How is the content on TGLM challenging antifeminist narratives in a Nigerian context? And finally,  iii) How do the Nigerian followers relate to the brand of feminism represented on TGLM?
