The end of an era.
Today in misogynist news, “Girls” show runner Jenni Konner penned a note in Lenny Newsletter about a hideous encounter that went down between Lena Dunham and a male television producer.
Lena Dunham and Jenni Konner made “entrepreneurship” the theme of their September 20 Lenny newsletter. In an introductory email to subscribers, Dunham begins by ‘fessing up to her own past internalized sexism, recalling the time when she assumed a well-dressed college classmate “had been given an all-access pass to her father’s gold card,” only to learn that the young woman had her own fashion business. The point of the issue, then, is that women can be entrepreneurs, and —relatedly — that girly-seeming businesses count. Hear, hear!
Hannah Horvath may not be the best person to give life advice, but Lena Dunham? Different story. The ‘Girls’ creator is launching a weekly email newsletter named after ‘an old Jewish man.’
