Lenny, a feminist e-newsletter by none other than Lena Dunham and Jenni Konner, is launching this fall.
Since the announcement, the Internet’s been all…
And for good reason. I mean yes, technically the last thing we need is another celebrity lifestyle newsletter that does nothing but point out things we can’t afford and ways our lives could be prettier—but that’s what will likely make Lenny stand out from the pack.
If there’s one thing we all love about Lena and Jenni, it’s that they’re accessible, hilarious and talk about things that really matter—to all of us. We can always count on them to say what needs to be said. The newsletter will be aimed at 19- to 34-year-olds and will cover “feminism, style, health, politics, friendship, and everything else,” according to the website. With their slogan being “There’s no such thing as too much information,” I have a feeling Lenny is going to be just as buzzworthy as their show.
Writers will be recruited from Dunham’s network of celeb friends (natch), with Jessica Grose acting as editor-in-chief (known for her work on Jezebel and Slate), as well as Laia Garcia (of Rookie fame) as associate editor.
Dunham told Buzzfeed:
[Lenny will be for] an army of like-minded intellectually curious women and the people who love them, who want to bring change but also want to know, like, where to buy the best tube top for summer that isn’t going to cost your entire paycheck.”
We won’t know until the fall whether Lenny will become the Goop-with-grit we’ve been waiting for—all we can do until then is daydream about what might eventually grace the newsletter… like what a Lenny issue might look like if written entirely by the characters of ‘Girls’:
