Lindy West is a Seattle-based writer, editor, and performer whose work focuses on pop culture, social justice, humor, and body image. She’s currently a culture writer for GQ magazine and a weekly columnist at the Guardian, as well as the founder and editor of I Believe You | It’s Not your Fault, an advice blog for teens. Known as the blogger who boldly yet empathically confronted an Internet troll on This American Life; and hailed by Lena Dunham as “an essential (and hilarious) voice for women,” Lindy West has established herself as a powerful writer and important voice for people everywhere (especially for those who feel they don’t have a voice). She was half of the duo who initiated #shoutyourabortion, which landed her on the cover of the New York Times. Lindy’s first book ‘Shrill’ is a series of essays about the making of a funny feminist, coming of age in a popular culture that is hostile to women, and doesn’t think women are or can be funny.
