According to CNN Money, Harris-Perry will write columns, host videos and conduct interviews for the web site, starting this week. “She will, as her work has always done, highlight the stories of women and girls — a reader might get to see an interview with a prominent female politician, a Black Lives Matter activist, or a celebrity. Or they might read Melissa’s writings on topics ranging from feminism, intersectionality, and motherhood, to fashion and even gardening.” said Leah Chernikoff, the site’s director.
Harris-Perry also published her first story on Elle titled examination of feminism on HBO’s new film “Confirmation” about Anita Hill and her effect on the Clarence Thomas Supreme Court nomination.
“Joining ELLE.com is an opportunity to combine my expertise as a scholar, my commitments as a public intellectual, and my interests as a woman,” said Harris-Perry in a statement about her new role at the website. “I am thrilled to tell my loyal television audience where they can find me and to introduce myself to brand new audiences, all while telling the stories of extraordinary women and girls.”
