Lena Dunham is dipping her toes into publishing again -- but this time it's with a fun, weekly feminist newsletter with Girls executive producer Jenni Konner dubbed Lenny. And it's apparently for "an army of like-minded intellectually curious women and the people who love them, who want to bring change," but also enjoy a good style round-up, you know? Best of all, it appears from the masthead and initial coverage that Dunham will be using this newsletter to elevate a more diverse set of women and create a kind of excellent, feminist publication applicable to all.

Lenny will be headed up by ex-Jezebel/Double X editor Jessica Grose, as well as African-American writer (and author of the best damn thing ever written re. Rihanna) Doreen St. Félix and Puerto Rican writer Laia Garcia. It also seems from initial reports that the focus will be on the positive, more inclusive aspects of feminism that embraces all female-identifying individuals. It will mostly be focused on self-told stories and emphasize multiple experiences and points of view -- something that's key in helping give WOC a voice in what's often a media dominated by the white feminist perspective.

Hopefully, this means that intersectional feminism will experience a rise in public consciousness and big ups to Dunham for apparently taking criticism for only portraying a very specific experience -- that of the white, privileged female -- to heart.  It's about time something like Lenny existed.
