It’s been a crazy, crazy week around here. We relaunched the site last week (round one! Full rebuild coming to theaters near you soon), and we’re still dealing with everything from load times to font readability. It’s cool, though. It’ll all happen. Plus, we’re still on a high from announcing the launch of APW’s sister site The Compact, coming for you summer of 2017 (but with magical feminist newsletters starting now). We’re up and running on Facebook, so please join the party there. (And Instagram! And Pinterest!)
Amidst all the madness I got to meet #girlboss Sophia Amoruso, founder of Nasty Gal, at the Re:Make conference. We are similar ages and started business within a few years of each other with zero capital, and have both had quite a ride. She was lovely and told me to keep fucking up weddings. She tried to come around the table to take a picture with me, which they wouldn’t quite let her do, so the result is the slightly unflattering but still cool shot above.
TL;DR: Thanks for the amazing ride these past eight and a half years, you guys. And thanks for your patience as we iron out the kinks in our newest projects.
FLOTUS just hosted her last Harvest Garden, and y’all: we’ll miss her.
Poland just shut down an abortion ban in a terrific way.
