This Week in Lady Reads

(But there’s a little bit about the terrible stuff, because it’s important and I don’t feel right completely ignoring it all. Sorry!) Come on in for the latest […]

This Week in Misogyny Wants Some Potato Skins

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.)

This Week in Misogyny has a #SolidarityHashtag

Are you ready for some misogyny? Yeah, me neither.
