Weekend Links Vol. 20: Working on the Fall Issue

Welcome to another week of feminist web surfing! This week, we’re working on adding the finishing touches to the Fall issue! We’ll soon be sending it to publishers && sharing the latest feminist work of Brown with y’all! 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.
