This Week in Lady Reads

Over the past week, there’s been quite a bit of coverage of Caitlyn Jenner, so we’ve found a few posts you can use to refute the ignorant haters. We’ve also got lots of good reads about feminism and other social justice topics, pop culture, a bit of science (with an unfortunate side of sexism), and some fun stuff to cheer you back up if you make it to the end.

Uncle Sugar vs. Carlos Danger

Once again, it’s time for a male politician to introduce us to an outlandish character, one we meet in the course of either sending indiscreet texts or making tone-deaf remarks about women.
