Nevertheless She Existed: the Women They Don't Want You to Know About is the shameless feminist party you've been waiting for. Each month a lineup of female storytellers, comedians, and historians join forces to share the stories of some of the greatest women the world has ever known (but history erased). We're cracking open the history books and throwing in some feminism- one bad bitch at a time.

She's also the author of “Run for Something: A Real Talk Guide to Fixing the System Yourself,” published by Simon & Schuster in 2017.
