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.

Feminist Blog Roll
A Cups is a podcast hosted by Angela Washko and Ann Hirsch. During A Cups, Washko and Hirsch discuss (in a casual and occasionally crass fashion) current daily issues they face personally as women in New York City as well as pop culture from a feminist perspective. They invite innovative/unusual/loud guests from a variety of fields to share their work and experiences and weigh in on the discussion.
Causes We Support
In response to #SolidarityIsForWhiteWomen, Roxane Gay at Salon is looking for women writers of color! Submit to their open call here.
Quote of the Week
No male writer has written primarily or even largely for women, or with the sense of women’s criticism as a consideration when he chooses his materials, his theme, his language. But to a lesser or greater extent, every woman writer has written for men even when, like Virginia Woolf, she was supposed to be addressing women. If we have come to the point when this balance might begin to change, when women can stop being haunted, not only by “convention and propriety” but by internalized fears of being and saying themselves, then it is an extraordinary moment for the woman writer-and reader.
