Lena Dunham is NOT sorry. She is THE brave voice of female millennials, talking to the TRUE and uncensored experience of being a young woman today. Not only is she challenging main stream media on a variety of topics she is doing so masterfully and unapologetically. Whats even more brilliant about Lena? Her consciousness and commitment to improving the female experience using her art and celebrity.

If you don’t know who Lena is, this must be your first time connecting to WIFI. I urge you to walk over to your nearest book store and pick up a copy of Lena’s book “Not that kind of Girl”. You should drop a line to your mom and friends and let them know where you are going to be for the next 48 hours – which is unable to put this masterpiece down.

Lena is not just an author but a screen writer, producer, director and actress. You may have heard of little show called Girls for which she’s received eight Emmy nominations for, won two Golden Globes and became the first woman to win a Directors Award for Outstanding Director in a Comedy Series. If this does not impress you, Maybe this will she is also BFF’s with Taylor Swift.

To this impressive resume Lena will be adding “Newsletter Publisher”. Lena will be launching Lenny a weekly email lifestyle publication for millennial women. Lenny’s mission statement is as follows “ Lenny is your over sharing Internet friend who will yell at you about your finances, help you choose a bathing suit, lamp, president … AND tell you what to do if you need an abortion” Lenny will be a collection of womens voices that understand that you can have a deep liberal politics but also love swim suit fashion and Rhianna. Lenny is for those who understand that all of these things can occur together.

Lenny is targeting a female audience 18-34 but with a more diverse background then say Cosmo. Dunham told the Cut “We want it to be an inclusive space…Not just for straight, white cisgender woman…We’re not making assumptions about your identity. We’re making the assumption that you’re passionate and you care about other people emotions and style and you just want to live a more connected life.”

Lenny is going to be a free email publication that will eventually be paid for by affiliate links. You can pre-register to Lenny by clicking any one of the 347,684  links I added here to have it delivered to an inbox near you. Lenny is Bea!! I don’t know about you but I will be OCD checking my email Hannah styles until it drops – as this is the best thing to have happened to me since gluten free bread and wine juice boxes.

Lena for Prez.
