Cannabis Lifestyle Publications Gossamer and Broccoli Launch This Week [Fashionista]
The legalization of marijuana (in some form or another) in 29 U.S. states and D.C. has led to a business boom — the cannabis industry is expected to reach $20.2 billion by 2021 — and luxury cannabis companies are cashing in. On the fringes of this movement are two new magazines, Gossamer and Broccoli, which are both focused on the lifestyle (think: food, travel, arts/culture) aspects of marijuana. Gossamer was co-founded by former Lucky digital editor Verena von Pfetten and former Digg chief creative officer David Weiner, and will publish twice per year; Broccoli — whose tagline is "by and for women who love cannabis" — was founded by Kinfolk creative director Anja Charbonneau and will publish three times per year.
Miss Representation Returns to Netflix [Pret-a-Reporter Inbox]
Miss Representation, Jessica Siebel Newsom's 2011 documentary that explores how the mainstream media's portrayal of women contributes to their lack of representation in positions of power and influence, is returning to Netflix in the wake of the Harvey Weinstein scandal and the ensuing dialogue about how women are treated in our culture. "We are seeing the dangerous effects of limiting gender norms play out in real time all around us — whether displays of toxic masculinity in the White House or predatory male behavior across our country as proven in the vitality of the #MeToo campaign," said Newsom in a release. "We're proud for Miss Representation to be back on Netflix, particularly in this moment when we have the opportunity to change attitudes and behaviors around gender norms and ultimately transform culture. Together, we can challenge misogyny everywhere from politics to media and create a healthier culture for generations to come.”
