Youth-skewing multimedia outfit Vice Media has launched a YouTube channel featuring investigative journalism and documentaries aimed at women which cover the stories about sex, politics and culture that mainstream media ignores.

The brand’s editor-in-chief is Tracie Egan Morrissey, who previously worked at Gawker Media’s feminist site Jezebel and will include a website featuring longform articles.

It joins other Vice-operated channels such as Noisey, which covers alternative music; Munchies, which specialises in food; and Thump, which deals with electronic music, on YouTube.
