Welcome to another week of feminist web surfing! In Weekend Links we gather a set of the most engaging journalism, prose, poetry, art, activism, and Interweb images or memes we have come across. This week’s links highlight our feminist struggles to create new worlds here and now. We hope with this small curation of links to illuminate the work of the prolific and active feminist blogosphere.
