On the heels of Lena Dunham announcing her awesome new feminist newsletter “Lenny,” we began to think about all of the other awesome newsletters we like to read. Though “newsletters” may seem a bit old-fashioned, it really is nice to have something to read thoroughly (or even just skim) as you sip your morning coffee. With no further ado, here are some of the best newsletters for girls and women! Fill your inbox with stuff you actually want to read!
Now I know (haha-see what I did there?) that I am always trying to fill my head with even more interesting (but pretty useless) information. If you are JUST LIKE ME (and I hope you are), Now I Know is a definite must-read. The awesome newsletter teaches you stuff like…carrots used to be purple and where you cannot name your child “Albin.” Some of the information is pure fun, and some of it is really useful information for our futures. Let’s sign up together.
The Skimm was started as a newsletter geared to young women who want to keep up with the daily news. The news roundup is basically perfect for those not constantly catching up on daily news throughout the day on Twitter.
If you have been dying to work for one of those cool startups, Wakefield is for you. The newsletter bills itself as a connection for forward thinking people with “next gen” companies. Stay up to date on the latest and greatest startups—especially if you want to apply for one.
Rachel Sklar and Glynnis MacNicol, two awesome journalists, created The Li.st as a way to keep women informed on what is going on with women. Sounds perfect, yeah? The Li.st is perfect for “professional women from all industries” who basically want to know what women are creating, why they are creating, and what else is going on in the world of women. It’s a great way to stay connected and informed.
