6'5" Monika: How Jezebel Just Lost my Readership, and Maybe Yours

Those of us women over 6' tall in the U.S. (I'm 6'4") only make up 1% of the population. That's about 3.2 million of us out there. It's not a huge number, but here's the thing about that number:

  • 99% of us are between the ages of 20 and 50
  • We are internet savvy because we had to be (to find clothes, communities, etc.)
  • A decent chunk of us tend toward the liberal because, again, we had to (traditional roles don't work with us, we faced a lot of bullying growing up, etc.)
  • We are constantly exploring the world around us for innovations (because we're looking for the world to offer things that work for us)
