  •  “Women are the glue. It’s invisible, what women do.” You have probably read this Björk interview by now—if not, head over to Pitchfork, you won’t regret it! It’s wonderful!
  • “Breastfeeding 101 for Sexual Assault Survivors” tackles a subject that is often overlooked in our medical system. “Lactation consultants, postpartum doulas, and other support providers should be better educated in sexual trauma and prepared to help parents with such history recognize if that may be what is causing difficulties.”
  • The Jacobin traces Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s political trajectory, focusing on his break from the Democrats, and his eventual shift to the left. “Johnson and the Democrats had come to rely on King’s nonviolent tactics and his support for their party as an important counterweight to the growing numbers of radicals in the rising Black Power revolt. When King denounced the war in 1967, the Democrats regarded him as a traitor.”
  • Hazlitt’s “The Scars to Prove it” is a heartbreaking, mesmerizing read about the physical legacy of residential schools. “I asked Kristal the same question I’ve asked other cutters: why do it? Many adults say they started as kids in the residential schools—it was a coping mechanism in places where violence was the norm and kids weren’t allowed to complain—and continue now because it provides a release, a way to numb that internalized pain.”
