The Karens

By Peter Gray

In high school, being a Karen meant prestige, style, and popularity. Now, a different sort of “Karen” has gone viral: bored housewives shrilly taking out superficial anxieties on anybody who gets too close. To save the good Karen name, these three former mean girls are ready to reconnect for their most important mission yet: Holding “The Privileged White Women of America” to task. 

As they tackle privilege head-on, this trio of well-intentioned vigilantes must grapple with their own individual privileges and find a way to fight the stereotype they have come to represent without succumbing to their resurfacing adolescent insecurities.
