Lena Dunham Is Launching A Newsletter Filled With All The Inner Workings Of Young Women

This September, Lena Dunham is launching her own newsletter, along with Girls production partner Jenni Konner. It’s simply called Lenny and it will encompass all things geared toward young women. The weekly email newsletter 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,” Lena told BuzzFeed.

Lenny will be spearheaded by editor-in-chief Jessica Grose, who comes from Slate and Jezebel. Starting out as just an email newsletter, Lena and Jenni have plans to make it into a website. However, there will be no traditional comments section so that people don’t have an open space to hate on Lena Dunham, body shame, etc. The idea came to Lena while on tour for her book Not That Kind of Girl, where she came across thousands of young girls who were discussing issues from maintaining hair color to politics.

Lena said, “With Lenny there’s no such thing as TMI, there’s no such thing as self-involved. We’ll be allowed to show the ugly and complicated thought processes that go into forming your own brand of feminism, and your own identity, because it’s not all clean back here.”
