Lena Dunham is everywhere these days! Our girl is sharp, clever, and all for female empowerment so we're psyched that she's set to host Saturday Night Live on March 8th, according to The Wrap (opens in new tab). Immediately we're wondering what issues her sketches will touch upon—twentysomething girls in NYC, the highs and lows of celebrity (opens in new tab), or perhaps something more hard-hitting like the wage gap and issues pertaining to women in the media (opens in new tab)? We're waiting with baited breath. Congrats, Ms. Dunham!
