    Keywords : feminism; memes; Instagram; humor; wellness; oppression; Nigeria; social media;

    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? The theoretical approaches theories employed to help think through the data gathered in form of thematic blocks from the interview, and the textual and visual content are participatory culture, work of representation, and filter bubbles and echo chambers.
