Our Mission

Lede Time is an online magazine for women who think, write, do. Curated by Megan Hendrickson, Lede Time seeks to make everyday life a little easier, spark big ideas and discussions, and address real-world issues.

Today’s women are leaders, travelers, and professionals. We helm boardrooms and families, declutter closets and databases, write code, and make history. And we love to talk passionately about our interests, ranging from politics to friendship, fashion, and feminism. Modern women deserve a space to do that. Enter Lede Time.


So what does lede actually mean?

Lede is journalism speak for the first section of an article. It’s the story’s hook, designed to entice readers to consume the entire piece.
