Beyond gun control, student marchers aim to upend election: “The march is just the beginning — a moment of political awakening, she hopes, that will put the nation on notice that young people plan to be a greater, more organized force than teenagers and college students in the past.” (The New York Times)

Lena Waithe is changing the game: “For so many of us who have not seen an out Black lesbian front and center this way, her arrival is a small, long-awaited revelation. Her arrival is our arrival.” (Vanity Fair)

The uprising of women in red states is just beginning: “Women in industries overlooked by our narrow, sexist definition of “working class” are challenging this country to expand its vision of labor beyond white men with tool belts, and make good on the promises of democracy.” (The Cut)

For decades our coverage was racist.

Always the reporter, never the bride: “So, I cover these weddings and as I watch these couples interact, I soak in the simple but significant gestures I long for: a shared knowing glance, hands that magnetically clasp together, kisses that silently tell their stories.” (The New York Times)


Making room for indie shops and box stores: “My biggest hope for this discussion is to understand each other better and then work together to unpack and clear away the judgement that happens when we talk about where and how people shop.” (Design Sponge
