WHO WE ARE
Welcome to The Establishment. We’re so thrilled that you’re here.
We’re a multimedia company run and funded by women that’s predicated on a simple, yet radical notion: the world is a better, more interesting place when everyone has a voice. When one small, homogenous group runs the media, we’re left with a very skewed notion of the human experience.
We’re here to provide space for writers and creators of all shapes, sizes, and creeds to work their magic.
Let’s build a new Establishment.
