Portrait of a #Girlboss: Kim Gordon


The first video in our Portrait of a #GIRLBOSS series!

One of the main reasons Sophia wanted to write #GIRLBOSS was to show people that the straight and narrow is not the only path to success. Her own road was pretty curvy, and she's not the only one. Lots of super successful women have ended up where they are today because of all the (right & wrong) turns they made along the way, and we created Portraits of a #GIRLBOSS to prove it. In this video series, you'll meet six different women who are all completely badass in their own way—we dare you to watch these videos and not be inspired (because it's just not possible).

First up: Kim Gordon. As a founding member of the iconic indie rock band Sonic Youth and founder of cult favorite label X-Girl, Kim has personified style, feminism and independent cool for decades. An incredible musician, a visionary artist, and an electric performer with killer style, she exhibits every possible #GIRLBOSS trait (and is also just an all-round amazing human being). Get to know Kim by watching her Portrait, then go listen to every Sonic Youth album you can find.

Stay tuned for the next Portrait of a #GIRLBOSS, coming soon!
