    For a couple who wants kids, it stands to reason that at least one person’s professional life is going to have to take a back seat. And it no longer makes economic sense for women to default to a caretaker role and men to a breadwinner. It may be of bedrock importance in the abortion debate, but in the context of work and family, it’s her choice is a paradigm that doesn’t make sense anymore.

    My version of feminism isn’t about being left to my own devices to make a choice that will affect my entire family and then pick up the pieces if and when it doesn’t work out. I’d much rather be a truly equal partner in making a mutually agreed upon plan.

    Hi readers! It’s been a year now, so please help me update my suggested feminist blog list and book list; 101 primers on issues like class, white privilege, and LGBT issues; and book clubs that provide safe spaces.
The goal? To help better inform and connect feminists across the world.
Let me know what your favorite reads are (or shamelessly self promote!)

    White supremacy has not only not changed its direction, it’s intensified as black people and other people of color have gained rights and have proved ourselves to be equal. In many ways the Zimmerman case is really a modern day lynching, it’s about racist white people reinforcing racialized power.

    We can’t combat white supremacy unless we can teach people to love justice. You have to love justice more than your allegiance to your race, sexuality and gender. It is about justice. That’s why Dr. King was so vital because he used the transformative power of love as a force for justice.

    thehorologicon asked: Hi. We've just published Mark Forsyth's The Horologicon (or book of hours) - unusual, beautiful & forgotten words, arranged according to when you need them. We are posting Mark's favourite obscure words and their definitions, such as ultracrepidarian, 'somebody who gives opinions on subjects they know nothing about'. We're running a campaign to bring back these lost words and we need your help with spreading the word (!) by sharing them and using them in everyday life. Best wishes, Madeleine.
