Allie is a fashion-obsessed news junkie who has worked in all areas of media from print to digital to broadcast. Her love of entertainment, gossip and culture is rivaled only by her passion for women's rights, African American history and social justice. On the rare occasion that she's not working, you can find her stalking her favorite fashion blogs, scouting the best coffee shops in New York City, indulging in reality television or shopping the latest shoe trends. @alliemcgev

Let’s face it, 2016 hasn’t been the easiest year. We’ve seen many a sad story, been forced to take to the streets of our hometowns in protest and have had to pick up ourselves up each day and keep fighting for justice.
But in that darkness, there has been a light — and that is the resilience, spirit and power of our people. And no one is more powerful and resilient than Black women.
