Nearly one year ago, we began this column as a tribute and reaction to the tragic murder of Mike Brown.
It’s the first day of June and even though we’re nearly halfway into the year, the news about police brutality and violence against PoCs continues to make waves.
So much good reading this week!
Another week of inspiring solidarity and protests following the tragic deaths of black men in America. Let’s get to the news.
All the news that Ladyblogland found interesting this past week.
What can I say about this week other than it was electric?
If you’re looking for the best of the ladyblogs, I’ve got a few articles that’ll make you extremely happy that the Internet exists. As if pictures of kittens weren’t doing that already.
This week I’m mixing things up, pointing you not just to great ladyblog reads but also discoveries from the interwebz that may be of interest to you, dear ladyblog enthusiasts.
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!).
I think my favorite article this week was about how institutionalized feminism prevents assholes from winning.
I promise there is a picture of a cat at the end of this post.
You really should read this week’s dispatches. Why? They’ve got analysis of the sad double-standard of male and female movie stars in editorials, discussions of porn and some brainy literary discussion. But why should you really read this week’s dispatches? Because one of the articles has a delicious animated gif of Chris Hemsworth.
Welcome back you lovely peaches, you kindly kids with faces I could kiss and cheeks I could ravish. It’s all about the news, and well, the news can be what the French refer to as quelle horreur.
Muffins and kittens, poodles and mittens! You came back!
Welcome back, muffins, kittens, poodles, and oh, whatever else we got going on here. Here we are, taking to the brimming cauldron of news and newsish, highlighting the week’s events that are enough to send us running for the hills and screaming for mercy.
