Saturday Tea & Feminism

Cultural appropriation, gender in the Civil Rights Act, and more in this week’s feminist link roundup.


Orphan Black has taken over my life. I’m fascinated by how Tatiana can play so many vastly different characters (and characters impersonating each other) with no flaws. I easily forget that they are all the same actress.

Anyway, here are some links I liked this week – enjoy!

Cultural appropriation: what it is, why it’s bad (i-D)

 The reason gender was included with race in the Civil Rights Act? A joke. (Longreads)

The Latitude Festival’s 20 best books by women. (Baileys Women’s Prize blog)

Roxane Gay is joining Ta-Nehisi Coates and Yona Harvey to write a new comic book series called World of Wakanda about 2 women from Black Panther’s country. Clearly it is going to be AMAZING. (New York Times)
