Like doing laundry or boiling an egg, there are some things every woman should know how to do. And those must-have skills definitely extend to your phone and computer. About 10 years ago, you could get by knowing the basics of Microsoft Word and Excel, and how to send text messages using T9. Nowadays, the digital landscape is far more vast, and so are the skills you need in order to thrive.

You don't need to stress though — we have you covered. In this series, we'll show you how to do everything from set up an autoresponder for your emails, to finding the perfect GIF for every scenario. Your current level of digital prowess doesn't matter. By the time we're through, you will be a boss at all the things that really matter in 2016. We have advice from staffers here at Refinery29, as well as some of our favorite leading ladies in the tech industry.
