Women are always cleaning up somebody else's mess. Her willingness to talk openly and to avoid corporate speak has won her fans. Yet while she may be keen to carve a different path to that of other tech companies, last year Bumble logged more thanincidents that violated its guidelines - and like many other platforms it too relies on Artificial Intelligence to scan for hate speech.
Its latest campaign is against body shaming, banning derogatory remarks about appearance, body shape and size. Ms Wolfe Herd is one of women who made Forbes' list of the world's billionaires, up from women last year.
