It’s been another banner week for misogyny news. Several studies were published that will likely depress you, and the weekly roundup of terrible people will probably piss you off. There’s some fun stuff at the end, though! (As usual, trigger warnings for pretty much everything apply.)
In a stunning turn of events, I have mostly good news to share this week because I feel like we all need it. First though, let’s get the unpleasant and ridiculous out of the way.
This week features singing, a very useful gif, and the pill.
Is Hillary Clinton responsible for the Boko Haram kidnappings (and is she hiding brain damage from us)? Why did the New York Times fire Jill Abramson? Are you smarter than the average American? Let’s see if we can answer these questions and more. (As usual, trigger warnings for pretty much everything apply.)
I just can’t with some of these stories this week. The Cleveland abduction is feminism’s fault? BeyoncÃ© puts girls at risk of becoming sex slaves? Women have to work an extra 12 years to earn the same amount as men? Seriously?? (Trigger warnings for pretty much everything apply.)
