Gwyneth Paltrow is an Academy Award-winning actress, author of three New York Times bestselling cookbooks, and is the founder and Chief Creative Officer of the lifestyle company goop.com. Through goop, and her own lifestyle choices, Paltrow has pushed many conversations—primarily around health, wellness, and mindfulness—into the mainstream, shining the light on our basic right to have clean and healthy food, properly regulated personal care products, and access to information so we can make our own choices for our families.
As the leader of a primarily female start-up, she is also heads-down on creating a culture that both celebrates and empowers women, where the thread line is that we are all multi-faceted, complicated, and busy b*&tches who can care about family and work simultaneously. While the goop team is just a microcosm, it's emblematic of a larger sea change that needs to happen for families in the U.S.
