Over at The Toast, Nicole Chung addresses the reception to her previously published piece “On Nice Parties and Casual Racism.” What’s particularly compelling is Chung’s refusal to entertain the notion of “Good Intentions” when it comes to justifying or understanding racialized micro-aggressions.

This looks great! Launched only a week ago, Dardishi is an online magazine run by Arab women and “with a focus on writing and artwork produced by Arab women.” It looks like the editorial team is looking for contributors as well.

This is big news: It was recently announced that the National Film Board of Canada (NFB) will now commit half of its production spending to female-directed films.

Senator Maria Chappelle-Nadal makes Missouri history attempting to filibuster anti-LGBT bill.

The Globe and Mail features four stories exploring sex education among First Nations communities this week. We really enjoyed this piece: “How the traditional indigenous practice of beading can lead to frank talk about sex.”

Apparently we’re going to have a woman on a new bank note by 2018, and we’re encouraged to send in our picks to the Bank of Canada. Do you have thoughts on who you’d want to see?

What do grammar pedants and fashion victims have in common? A really excellent piece that deconstructs the idea of “respectability” when it comes to the rules of language.

“Lake Theory & Sweaty Praxis” will make you long for the summer and your friends, and offers an interesting take on academia and the healing powers of theory.

Do you know what the #TheTriggering is? The Harlot digs into the failures of the recent Twitter-focused movement led by MRA types concerned about #feminists and #freespeech.

So apparently the White House circulates content on Medium now? Bit weird, but here’s the HQ’s of the official Canadian State visit. 

Apparently the mass-market version (i.e. the cheaper version) of To Kill a Mockingbird will no longer be available to buy; New Republic considers how this might affect the availability of the book among future students.

Sorta offensive, tongue-in-cheek drabble over that the New Yorker about the Panda / Trudeau photo. 

A bit broad in scope, but there are some amazing stories showcased in Yes Magazine’s “How Women-Led Movements are Redefining Power.”
