The New York Times
Since 1851, obituaries in The New York Times have been dominated by white men (just 20 percent have been women). Overlooked is a project to write the obituaries for the women who never got them, but should have. Women like Diane Arbus, the photographer, and Ida B. Wells, the journalist, as well as the novelist Charlotte Bronte.
This project is now being developed into a scripted anthology, from Paramount, to be directed by women directors.
45 Stories of Sex and Consent on Campus
The New York Times
In 2018, as stories of sexual misconduct dominated the news, a debate erupted over a particular kind of encounter: one that may not be entirely consensual, but does not necessarily fit the definition of sexual assault, either. We asked college students around the world to share their stories of navigating that murky area of sexual consent.
The Lean In Collection
Cofounder & Curator
Launched in 2015, this was an ongoing partnership between Getty Images & LeanIn.org aimed at changing the depiction of women in stock photography (in other words: no more women laughing alone with salad). With 10,000 images and counting, the idea was to put women in the foreground not the background; to break down gender stereotypes for women and men, and to diversify imagery by race, gender identity and other categories. The project won the Infinity Award from the International Center of Photography.
Launched in 2013, this special section of Cosmopolitan devoted to women and work was published biannually in partnership with Sheryl Sandberg’s LeanIn.org. Section topics included equal pay, negotiation, women in technology, etc.
A gallery exhibit and online initiative devoted to highlighting the work of female photographers whose work shatters gender taboos.
From 2012-2013, I was the cofounder and executive editor of Tumblr's Webby-nominated and New York Press Club award-winning multimedia journalism initiative, overseeing features across platforms including video, design, multimedia and news (until we all got fired).
