The Rubin is transforming. Read important updates from our Executive Director.

Kasia Urbaniak is on a mission to break the yoke of “good girl” conditioning and redefine what it means to be a good woman. She is the founder of The Academy, a school that teaches women the art of power and influence. Her studies of power over 20 years have taken her from the dungeons of New York City, where she worked as a dominatrix, to monasteries in China, where she trained as a Daoist. She and actress Julianna Margulies discuss the shifting power dynamics among women today, and how roles have evolved beyond just being “The Good Wife.”
