About Femestella

Femestella is a feminist news website with a point of view. We think the 2017 woman can love Roxanne Gay and Kim Kardashian. We cover the latest in entertainment, politics, health, style, and more; the baby feminist needs to be well-informed, in addition to being entertained.

How we began

Femestella was started in 2016 by Lena Finkel, who previously worked at Tiger BeatInStyle, and People magazine. She was tired of watching news outlets constantly pit women against each other instead of celebrating their successes as individuals. At Femestella, we believe there’s room for all of us at the top, if only we’re willing to help each other get there. Plus, she needed an outlet for her obscene love of all things Chrissy Teigen and Vanderpump Rules.

Behind the Name

So why the name “Femestella”? The name was inspired by the word “fenestella,” which means “a small window.” We wanted to give you a “small window” into the lives of your favorite celebs. We changed the “n” to an “m” because all great words start with “fem,” don’t they? Feminist, fem the future…you get it.
