  • Writer Guillaume Morissette weighs in on the demise of the alt-lit community following allegations of sexual assault against it’s “boy prince,” Tao Lin. While much has already been written about the topic, Morissette’s piece uniquely positions itself against the assessment that the alt-lit crowd is primarily a “boy’s club.”
  •  Most of you have probably seen or heard of the anti street harassment PSA, “10 hours of walking in NYC as a woman,” that was trending  online this week. Since the video’s  release on Tuesday, there has been a lot of discussion about the way it was edited, with white men noticeably absent in the shots of the woman walking. As Roxanne Gay commented on Twitter, “The racial politics of the video are [f*****] up … Like, she didn’t walk through any white neighborhoods?” NPR, The Daily Dot (discussing the Joyce Carol Oates debacle), Vice, and Brooklyn Magazine offer more insight on the topic.
  • Hazlitt reviews Jill Lepore’s new book, The Secret History of Wonder Woman, “which convincingly demonstrates that the most beloved superheroine of all time was created by an amorous cabal of feminists and sex radicals.”
  • “When I’m feeling low about my work I remember the words of labor activist, Dolores Huerta:‘Every moment is an organizing opportunity, every person a potential activist, every minute a chance to change the world.’” The Crunk Feminist Collective shares some powerful “words to live by”
