Welcome to another week of feminist web surfing! In Weekend Links we gather a set of the most engaging journalism, prose, poetry, art, and Interweb images or memes we have come across. We hope with this small curation of links to illuminate the work of the prolific and active feminist blogosphere.

Transgender surgery at sixteen. [The New Yorker]

Feminist Blog Roll
The Riveter is a magazine that celebrates narratives and longform journalism by women. We are dedicated to exposing the power of women as storytellers, because we noticed a void in the representation of female longform journalists. This is our effort to fill it, and to diversify the narrative. We don’t believe in stories that can be summed up in a sell line.
Quote of the Week
Trans women have always been revolutionaries, from Marsha P Johnson, to Miss Major, Sylvia Rivera and Chelsea Manning. We have always been on the front lines. Recognize.
