The ‘Girls’ creator is going to slide into your DMs with ‘Lenny’, a weekly newsletter that’s going to cover feminism, style and life advice
Want Lena Dunham all up in your inbox every week? You’re in luck – the actress, writer and director has decided to branch out into digital media with Lenny, a newsletter marketed as "an email newsletter where there’s no such thing as too much information".
Curated by Lena Dunham and Girls executive producer Jenni Konner, Lenny will cover “feminism, style, health, politics, friendship and everything else”.
Lenny will be curating and creating advice, along with essays and product recommendations for young women, explaining on its mission statement that “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.”
Girls has come under fire in the past before for not being diverse enough but Dunham has said that her newsletter will include a range of voices, marketed at a diverse range of women. She told The Cut that it won’t just be for “straight, white cisgender women". She said: “We want it to be an inclusive space. We’re not making any assumptions about your identity. We’re making the assumption that you’re passionate and you care about other people's emotions and style and you just want to live a more connected life.”
Lenny will publish original material aimed at 18-34 year old women, from a range of writers handpicked by Dunham and her team. You can sign up for it here.
