It's Lenny Letter day!
Now just what is that, exactly? It means that the much-hyped feminist newsletter from Lena Dunham and fellow Girls executive producer Jenni Konner finally dropped in the (digital) mailboxes of forward-thinking women (and a few men, probably) everywhere.
When the project was first announced it was met with some contradicting opinions. Many of Dunham's fans and followers were thrilled at the idea of an email newsletter that would presumably start a lot of intelligent dialogue about the issues facing women today, but there was a sizable group that felt the idea was a bit overbearing and, to put it bluntly (in their words, not ours!) just a little too much Lena. Both sides had valid arguments, but there was no real point in arguing until there was actually something physical to analyze. And now there is!
Dunham has been previewing a bit of the newsletter's main draw, an interview with none other than Hillary Rodham Clinton. It's no secret that Lena's been fully entrenched in Camp Hill for ages now, so this was actually a pretty perfect way to kick things off for Lenny—bias and all. Some will no doubt read the Q&A and cry favoritism, but is anyone really looking to Lena Dunham for fair and even coverage of the 2016 election? Didn't think so. We'll choose to judge this section of Lenny by its ability to be insightful and offer some sage advice.
