Just when you thought Lena Dunham will reevaluate her contribution to humanity in 2017 – she’s decided not to hold back her pop-feminism. Dunham has celebrated the Glamour Magazine for letting her cellulite “shine on [the] new cover”, adding that it’s “triumph for womankind”.
In her Instagram story today, Dunham said: “What do I love most about our new Girls’ Glamour Magazine cover, besides the fact that we’re all together, loving each other, I’d say that it’s the cellulite that has been revealed on my thigh. A triumph for womankind.”
Ahead of HBO Girls‘ sixth and final season, the main cast will feature on the February issue of Glamour accompanied with a feature article titled “The Girls girls and 50 other female forces owning Your Look. Your Body. Your Happiness. Your Future.”
Dunham also praised the cover on her Twitter, writing that “Can’t wait to show the grandkids” – sparking a reminder of her past comments, in which she said that although she never had an abortion, she wished she had one.

“The grandkids you aborted for fun?” wrote one Twitter user. ” What grandkids? I thought she was going to have abortions.”
“But wait, I thought you were gonna have an abortion instead? Make up your mind!” another user wrote. “What grandkids??? You’re the person who said you wanted to have an abortion.”
“Wait wait wait… if you abort your kids, how the HELL will you have grandkids?”
Many users are referring to the now-infamous episode of her Women of the Hour podcast, titled “Choice” where she said that “I still haven’t had an abortion, but I wish I had.”
In the podcast, she also said: “So many people I love – my mother, my best friends – have had to have abortions for all kinds of reasons,” adding “I feel so proud of them for their bravery, for their self-knowledge, and it was a really important moment for me then to realize I had internalized some of what society was throwing at us and I had to put it in the garbage.”
