And stay out.

You took a slew of people who meant the world to us, you made Brexit a household name/nightmare in America, and that sh*t you pulled on Nov. 8? Unforgivable.

No, 2016, can’t say I’m sorry to see go, but I’ll leave it to these witty British sisters to say it so much better than I could.

The best part of 2016? Relaunching Rebellious, of course, and reconnecting with all of you. We got the band back together, we reunited and it feels so good, we are showing every day that women’s voices matter, and feminism isn’t dead.

This month, we’ll take a good-parts-version look at 2016 with roundups of our Rebelles of the Month, our favorite books and music. We also chart new territory this month with Katie Morell’s new “Body Love” column, a personal and powerful look at the body positivity movement. Hells yes.

We’ve also got our unique feminist perspective on the city’s must-see shows, including “Art AIDS America Chicago,” and more. And stay tuned for pieces aimed at keeping you outraged about the Election.

Finally, please join us on Dec. 9 for the Sparkle and Shine Holiday Mixer, a celebration of women-powered businesses in Chicago. We’re proud to co-host with three fantastic partners: Velvetstyle, liftUPlift and brrrilliant.
