Advice Week on The Cut to Feature Wisdom from Empowered, Expert Women
NEW YORK, NY – June 22, 2015 – SheKnows Media, the number-one women’s lifestyle digital media company with more than 85 million unique visitors per month* and 162 million social media fans and followers, today announced a robust media partnership with New York Magazine’s The Cut in support of #BlogHer15: Experts Among Us, taking place in New York, July 16-18, 2015. The event is the largest gathering of women online content creators and social media influencers, and the brands, media, and fans who want to meet them.
The partnership centers on an online event on The Cut called Advice Week, where experts from the #BlogHer15: Experts Among Us Advisory Board including Reshma Saujani, Girls Who Code Founder and CEO, and Pilar Guzmán, Condé Nast Traveler Editor-in-Chief, are contributing to a week of advice to the empowered, ambitious women who read The Cut. Former United States Secretary of State Madeleine Albright, Vera Wang, Mindy Kaling, Kelly Ripa, and Diablo Cody, among others, will also contribute words of wisdom. Advice Week will feature the debut of Ask The Cut, a new weekly video series in which The Cut’s editors answer reader-submitted questions. Focused around such diverse topics as feminism and fashion, Advice Week will cut to the chase with savvy advice for The Cut’s avid readers, and the thousands of women descending on New York City to attend #BlogHer15: Experts Among Us.
The partnership will also feature Maureen O’Connor, Columnist at The Cut and Co-Host of New York’s Sex Lives podcast, participating in a #BlogHer15 discussion panel entitled: “When You’re ‘Too Much’ for Your Audience, Be It Your Profanity, Politics, or…", moderated by Dr. Logan Levkoff, an internationally recognized expert on sexuality, SheKnows Media Advisory Board member, and one of the stars of the hit show “Married at First Sight.”
“The Cut’s savvy audience and timely, on-trend content is well aligned with the community and content that comes together each year at the BlogHer event,” said Elisa Camahort Page, Sr. Vice President, Community Content and Events, SheKnows Media. “Both #BlogHer15: Experts Among Us and The Cut’s Advice Week are all about women not only inspiring women, but women sharing their expertise with and learning from other women.”
“We love to hear how other women live their lives, and get perspective from those we respect and admire,” said Stella Bugbee, Editorial Director, The Cut. “We created Advice Week to partner with BlogHer: Experts Among Us because it was a natural alignment in an area our readers crave, and we believe all women have their unique areas of expertise.”
