Lena Dunham and Jenni Konner Chat About "Lenny Letter" and More

Lena Dunham and Jenni Konner made an appearance on AOL's Build series this week at AOL headquarters in New York City.

While they are best known for their work on the HBO hit show, "Girls," the two came in to discuss the launch of their e-mail newsletter, "Lenny Letter." So far, we know that Dunham sat down with Hillary Clinton for the first issue. 

"We wanna bring new voices you've never heard of and the people you've heard of," Konner said. Followed by Dunham with her thoughts on the newsletter: "We think personal essays are a really essential medium for young women."

The meaning of feminism was also discussed.

"Feminism is good for everyone," Dunham said. "Feminism is our lens into equal rights."
