Saturday Tea & Feminism

#Lemonade, #BringBackOurGirls, and more in this week’s link roundup.


What a week for feminism. Here are some links I liked this week. We’ve got a 3 day weekend here, which means more time for reading 🙂


A beautiful love story. “As Linda said: “It’s not about the gender. It’s about the soul.”” (Washington Post, h/t Forrest)

Love Lemonade but don’t understand all the references? Check out these articles explaining Beyoncé’s amazing black feminist statement to the uninitiated. (Vox)

Why don’t young people want to identify as feminist even though they support gender equality? It probably has a lot to do with the perceived connotations of the word. (Mic, Harvard Politics)

Disappointing: Lebanese rock band Mashrou’ Leila was barred from playing in Jordan. The band has an openly gay lead singer and advocates for gender equality and sexual liberation. Queen Rania, I’m disappointed – you are usually such a feminist inspiration to me. (ThinkProgress)

Omolola Adele-Oso talks about #BringBackOurGirls and being an activist. (Devex)

Hulu is creating The Handmaid’s Tale as a series drama starring Elizabeth Moss! Time for some re-reading. (The Hollywood Reporter, h/t Amanda)

And ICYMI, I reviewed Nicola Barker’s The Cauliflower.
