The Silence Breakers: " This reckoning appears to have sprung up overnight. But it has actually been simmering for years, decades, centuries. Women have had it with bosses and co-workers who not only cross boundaries but don't even seem to know that boundaries exist." (Time Magazine)

Advice for my daughter: “Just resolve to shine, constantly and steadily, like a warm lamp in the corner, and people will want to move towards you in order to feel happy, and to read things more clearly. You will be bright and constant in a world of dark and flux.” (Films For Action)

On Joe Biden, Anita Hill, and positions of power: “But instead of pausing and thinking about how he could have done more, Biden, like so many other men, looked me dead in the eye and just said, “No.” No, I couldn’t have done more. No, I will not consider that I’m anything other than a good guy. I’m the hero of this story. Has no one told you that I’m the hero?” (The REWM)

A mixed-race royal couple? It wouldn’t be the first: “Sometimes, in our communities, we don’t get across that all children — children of color — have a right to experience everything in the world. If you are standing in a castle at a black-tie affair next to your husband, you belong there.” (The New York Times)

The forgotten lifestyle star who taught women of the 1930s how to 'live alone and like It': “Eighty years ago, when Marjorie Hillis celebrated single women as happy and fulfilled members of society, she was taking aim at the very basis of American women’s citizenship.” (Jezabel)

Meet Ann Gregory, who shattered racist and sexist barriers in the golf world: “It was better for me to remember that the flaw was in the racist, not in myself.” (Atlas Obscura)

He’s 22. She’s 81. Their Friendship Is Melting Hearts: "Their friendship began entirely at random when Words With Friends, a Scrabble-like phone game, assigned the two strangers to play each other last summer. They would eventually play hundreds of games together." (The New York Times)
