Victims find a fierce advocate in Judge Rosemarie Aquilina: “Mattel ought to make toys so that little girls can look at you and say, ‘I want to be her.’ Thank you so much for being here, and for your strength.” (The New York Times)

The psychic stress of being the only black woman at work: “But what we have perhaps missed are all the intangibles that make it so difficult for black women to succeed in corporate America — if they can get there in the first place.” (Lenny)

Naomi Parker Fraley, the Real Rosie the Riveter, dies at 96: “The search for the real Rosie is the story of one scholar’s six-year intellectual treasure hunt. It is also the story of the construction — and deconstruction — of an American legend.” (The New York Times)

The rising pressure of the #metoo backlash: “At the center of this discussion about discussion, there is a question: What are the parameters in which we should hold people responsible for more extreme versions of their behavior?” (The New Yorker)

On the disappointing (and enormous) gender inequality in Grammy nods: "Between 2013 and 2017, the think tank found that a total of 90.7% of Grammy nominees were men." (Digital Music News).

The birth plan of a black woman: “Would I, the woman with a challenging early pregnancy, receive the same level of care and attention as my white counterparts? Or would I be judged, for looking younger than I am, for having braids in my hair, and for being, by choice, unwed?” (The Cut)

The female price of male pleasure: “Women are enculturated to be uncomfortable most of the time. And to ignore their discomfort. This is so baked into our society I feel like we forget it's there.” (The Week)
