This week is about white feminism (it’s not doing such a good job), women in the kitchen (no one’s talking about them), Scandal (is it a scandal?), poetry (it’s queer), sexy Latinas (people need to stop), and awesome young women fighting the power (they pretty much rock!).
Have you seen Lily Allen’s new music video? If not, you’ve probably heard people talking about it. Looks like Allen, a singer who previously held a niche in pop-feminism, has jumped the shark into terrible white feminism territory. The Hairpin
Why, when women are responsible for making so much food for their families, are female chefs virtually ignored? Mother Jones
Are Scandal writers getting lazy with their tropes? The Frisky
This looks fun! A documentary on queer poets of color. Colorlines
Something that needed to be done: A discussion of the “sexy Latina” stereotype. Aya de Leon
In something that made me think that maybe all of this feminism is working, students walked out on a sexist school speaker and made an amazing hashtag: #lookadouche NYMag
