The tech world has traditionally been male-dominated, but in recent years we’re seeing more and more women starting blogs, websites, and companies that are every bit as successful as the men’s. Also, women make up about half of web users (and women are much more active on social media) – but sadly the web design ecosystem hasn’t really caught up to this fact – the vast majority of themes, plugins, and UI kits out there are designed with a primarily male audience in mind.
With this in mind, we’ve dedicated this post to curating a list of our favorite girly WordPress Themes. In particular, we’ve placed emphasis on themes that will draw in a female audience. All of the following themes are fully responsive, user-friendly and have ample room for customizability.
We hope our selection of girly WordPress themes will help you better target your female users. You can comment on the post to let us know what you think of our list. We’d also love to hear about any themes that come across that you think should be included in our list.
And as always, if you have an awesome girly website, app, or theme and would like to be featured on the site, you can email us at mail [at] fltdsgn.com or use the submissions page.
