Clover newsletter editors don't talk down to teen girls
There's no shortage of magazines telling girls how to flirt, what to wear and who to crush on. But the editors of Clover newsletter think teenage girls deserve better — and they should know.
Casey Lewis, former senior online editor at Teen Vogue, and Liza Darwin, once senior editor at Nylon, got tired of the fluff routinely served up to girls. So the pair quit their jobs to launch Clover, a feminist newsletter that filters for substance and relevance to young women.
Today they join Shad to discuss their project, its underpinnings, and the growing community of girls looking for an antidote to clickbait culture.
"The internet has an 'emptiness' that's especially harmful for teenage girls," says Lewis. "We thought, there's got to be a better way."
