Publisher, Bitch Media
Kate Lesniak is the publisher at Bitch Media, feminist response to pop culture. Each day, Kate's work focuses on one central question: How does an independent, community-supported feminist media outlet thrive in an environment that caters to corporate media and is constantly evolving through new engagement models and platforms? An organizer, fundraiser and innovator by trade, a friendly competitor by nature, and a person who is 100 percent committed to outsmarting the patriarchy, Kate approaches new challenges with energy for creative solutions and respect for the historical changemakers who paved the way for all of us. In 2017, Kate was named one of Media Shift's Top 20 Digital Media Innovators.
