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.
This week Macklemore accepted a Grammy for his minstrel-show tactics and Beyonce bellowed “Eat the cake, Anna Mae” alongside beau Jay-Z. While we’re not on board for abusive misogyny and exploitation of LGBTQ experiences for profit, we’d rather leave those debates to other spaces. There’s a whole lot more going on in the world that isn’t featured on the CBS network.
Here’s to another installment of feminist assortment media — enjoy!
