I'm a New York-based writer, editor and multimedia journalist. I write features on women, culture, teens & trends for the NYT, The Atlantic, TIME, Cosmo, The Daily Beast & others. I also edit special projects for Sheryl Sandberg's women's foundation, Lean In.
"You know, equality is a myth, and for some reason, everyone accepts the fact that women don’t make as much money as men do. I don’t understand that. Why do we have to take a backseat? I truly believe that women should be financially independent from their men. And let’s face it, money gives men the power to run the show. It gives men the power to define value. They define what’s sexy. And men define what’s feminine. It’s ridiculous."
