Welcome to our weekly news edit where we share articles that made us reflect on the state of world and also consider where we stand.

There is no war on men (but maybe there should be): “Their power fades, albeit slowly, with every protest, every new voter registration, and every time a woman comes forward to say she’s been hurt by one of them.” (Medium)

Life at 18: What does life look like for girls turning 18 in 2018? Here’s what. (The New York Times)

The road to progress is paved with pain: “This road is winding, long, unjust and cruel. It is set up to make victories — legal, electoral, moral — few and far between. But it also shows us, sometimes in blinkingly small and incomplete instances, that those victories are sometimes possible.” (The Cut)

The underrated upside of PMS: “But with our minds and bodies experiencing heightened hormones and fresh physical changes on a monthly basis, there’s an urgent call to question the alarmingly flippant way we dismiss the consciences of both ourselves and of others during this time.” (Man Repeller)

How mothers can make the most of the movement: "Motherhood is sold as soft, warm and fuzzy, which makes our anger seem displaced and abnormal. But the reality is, by and large, mothers are being screwed by the system, and we’re mad as hell." (The Lily)

And, it’s the final countdown until midterm elections. We love this idea during the lead up.
