HistoryEdit

In September 2015, Dunham and Konner started Lenny Letter as a self-funded project that would give a platform to young female voices to discuss feminist issues.[2][3][4] The newsletter features political essays, personal stories, interviews, artwork and even an advice column from Dunham and Konner themselves called "Letters to Lenny."[5] Benjamin Cooley is the CEO.[6] Laia Garcia has been Deputy Editor since July 2015.[7]

One notable article was an essay written by actress Jennifer Lawrence about the gender wage gap in Hollywood.[8]

Lenny Letter is supported by Hearst Corporation advertising.[9]

In addition to the regular newsletter, Lenny Letter published a Fiction Issue and a Poetry Issue during fall 2015. Lenny Letter is developing a book imprint at Random House and a possible HBO short film series.[10]
