Society called them crazy. But maybe they're iconic?

In this all-new season, Lena and Alissa peer into the complicated lives of a hip-hop revolutionary, one of Hollywood's most infamous it girls, Russian "royalty", and much more.

Lena Dunham is an Emmy Award-winning writer, director, producer and actor whose credits include the groundbreaking HBO Original, Girls along with feature films, Sharp Stick and Catherine Called Birdy.

Alissa Bennett is an essayist whose work probes the seedy underbelly of popular culture, cinema, and literature.

Help Us Protect Abortion Rights

With the Supreme Court’s recent ruling in mind, we’re dedicating the fifth season of The C-Word to any person with a uterus who wants an abortion, but who is currently unable to access one without the generous support of groups like National Network Abortion Funds.
