Modern Girls was founded in the summer of 2016 by longtime friends Jeanette, Kristen, Megan, Vanessa, and Chaia – partly based on the Strokes song of the same name (Modern Girls & Old Fashion Men). Being a diverse group of young women all hailing from different cities and backgrounds yet brought together by the all-consuming love of one band, we shared a vision to create a platform where girls are celebrated and empowered by each other. The “modern girl” always gets her way – with confidence, dedication, and (!) always with style. She’s too much to be defined, she’s making strides in industries that do not favor her, she’s a woman of color, she’s a part of LGBTQ+ – she’s you, she’s me! Modern Girls is intended to be a safe space for all women interested in music/art/fashion/politics (with the occasional post on pop culture – we need to know what’s new on the status of One Direction as much as you do, swear by it), all while letting your voice be heard.
