Catherine Lafuente has always been interested in women's issues, and cut her teeth reading about feminism and women's issues as a young adult. Since 2016, she has been writing for The List, bringing an informed perspective to the issues that women care about. As a book editor, she always made sure to take an intersectional approach to editing, ensuring that diverse perspectives were highlighted. Now as an editor at The List, Cat balances lighthearted and nuanced approaches with tried-and-true smarts. Most importantly, Cat believes that no indulgence should be shamed, be it reality television or nostalgic dives into '90s culture.
