Or rather, this fortnight. Getting a little lax on these. Been working a new job, in case you missed it. Definitely worth signing this petition. Anyway, here’s some things I’ve been reading.
On Whether You Have A Right To Sex (girlonthenet)- This really shouldn’t need to be said, but it’s said well.
On Continuing to Live In the Same World that Made Elliot Rodger (and Many Like Him) (Rachel)- Beautiful piece about living under misogyny.
Maya Angelou: a phenomenal woman (Reni Eddo-Lodge)- A touching obituary for a remarkable woman.
5 Reflections on the European Election Results (Novara)- Useful analysis of what happened.
Trigger warnings and toothpicks. (sometimes, it’s just a cigar)- On the importance of trigger warnings.
An open letter to privileged people who play devil’s advocate (Juliana)- Are you this dick? Don’t be this dick.
Brown beauty: from TV to the high st the beauty industry is still racist (Reni Eddo-Lodge)- Reni explores the racism in the beauty industry.
No country for young women: Honour crimes and infanticide in Ireland (Stephanie Lord)- Disturbing and upsetting, important to know.
Not All Men, Redux. (That Pesky Feminist)- I wish we didn’t need to keep saying this, but Tilly says it so goddamn well.
