Femestella was started in 2016 as a feminist news website. We cover the latest in television, music, health, news, politics and more. We believe the well-informed feminist can love Selena Gomez and Gloria Steinem and we hope to bring you all the news you need in one place.



Lena Finkel, Founder and Editor

Lena is the Editor and Founder of Femestella. Prior to starting Femestella, she worked at People, InStyle, and Tiger Beat. Her favorite Housewife is Bethenny Frankel and when she’s not watching RHONY, you can probably find her hanging with her kitty Tom or tweeting at Sen. Chuck Schumer.

Allie Bush, Staff Writer and Facebook Editor

Allie is interested in creating and sharing entertaining and engaging content, in whatever form it may take. She is a proud TV junkie and in her spare time can be found watching late night talk shows, talking about Chrissy Teigen or Amy Poehler, or eating off of other people’s plates.

Anne Catherine Demere, Editorial Intern

Anne Catherine is an intern with Femestella. She is almost too passionate about pop culture and the entertainment industry and she loves to write about it. One of her favorite things is when feminism and pop culture overlap. She’s either starting a new TV show or in class, there’s no in between. And those two rarely coincide.

Katherine Whitehead, Contributing Writer

Katherine Whitehead is a senior at the University of Tennessee. Her passion lies in writing, travel and anything having to do with Jon Snow’s butt.
