Lynn Harris is a believer, and leader, in social change powered by pop culture. As seen on The Daily Dot, Splitsider, and Like A Boss Girls: she is founder of the just starting-up startup GOLD. #comedyforgirls, designed to bring comedy to more girls and more girls into comedy.
Lynn was until recently Vice President – Communications for Breakthrough, a global human rights group that uses pop culture to promote gender equality. She is an author, essayist, commentator, mostly-retired comedian, and award-winning journalist who wrote about pop culture, politics, gender, relationships, religion, and disability, sometimes all at once. She is also co-creator—with supergenius Chris Kalb—of the award-winning website BreakupGirl.net, headquarters of the only superhero who rescues men and women from romantic emergencies and saves love lives worldwide. Her most recent book is the satirical novel Death By Chick Lit, which New York Magazine called “brilliant.” She is also a former Tonya Harding lookalike, which is a long story.
