This week we touched base with Lindsay Van Cantfort, lady boss and founder of Her Society, a non partisan women's group dedicated to equality and human rights.

Lindsay is here with the 411 on Her Society, packing lists, and how a badass lady spends a weekend away!

Q: Tell us a little about Her Society!

A: Her Society is a nonpartisan women's group based here in NYC.  It has been floating around in my head for years and upon moving to NYC last year and feeling really empowered and creative I decided to finally launch HER SOCIETY. It is a place for like-minded women to connect through events, activism and building a community of badass women.

Q: We hear you’re a weekend trip veteran. What are your favorite spots outside of NYC? 

A: That is a hard question! I love the obvious ones like Dia Beacon, Montauk and Woodstock! We have gone out to Fire Island a few times this summer and just relax at the beach and grill which is great.  We did Newport, Rhode Island a few weeks back and ate an obscene about of lobster which was a blast.

Q: What’s in your weekender right now? Any products, books, or emergency bottles of wine you’re loving?

A: Rosewater & Rosehip oil, Glossier Invisible SPF. "The Trouble with Reality: A Rumination on Moral Panic in Our Time" by Brooke Gladstone it is the perfect travel book, my camera, and slippers.

Q: Your platform empowers women, what do you think are the necessities for the ultimate girls trip? 

A: Curating the crew, a few solid plans but letting things just flow, speakers (because you know there will be a dance party), mezcal and post party eye masks. 

Q: As a hardworking woman on the go, how do you blow off steam mid-week?

A: I have been trying to do one thing every week completely solo, giving myself some time to explore the city on my own and recharge.  So a quiet museum day or a wander around the park really helps settle me. Also, a day to pamper myself mid week - do a mask, mani, a bath... something to chill my busy mind.

Q: What's the next weekend getaway (driving distance from NYC) that you can't wait to take?

A: THE DEBRUCE in Livingston Manor! I am actually dying to go.
