Weekend Reads 06

Well hello again! It’s been awhile since I’ve done one of these. I haven’t been very good about planning ahead with this blog (something I’m working on!) so when I went to DC for the weekend, I didn’t have one of these planned. The weekend after, I was SO exhausted and last weekend, I just wasn’t feeling it. So, here we are. In August. Can you believe it?!

I hope you find this weekend reading interesting.

+At The New Yorker, the Cartoonists Draw, but the Vision Is Hers

There’s nothing better than reading stories about empowering women doing great things in their jobs. I can’t believe she is only 29!

+Why Are Indian Women Wearing Cow Masks?

A really powerful message about the fight for gender equality in India.

+Pictures Of Women From London’s ’80s Subcultures, Then And Now

I thought this was a really cool article. I love all things with photography and it was interesting to see how these women changed over time (and how the photos from the ’80s brought women back together decades later).

+Jane Austen Is Set to Become the Second Woman on U.K. Currency

I love Jane Austen (I even visited her museum in Bath and her grave in Winchester, so I’m really excited about this!

+Do These 5 Emotionally Intelligent Things Within 5 Minutes Of Meeting Someone

I struggle a lot with things like networking and meeting people. I often have to rehearse things about myself to say and I struggle to ask other people questions because I’m so focused on remembering how to speak coherently. These are great tips to keep in mind!

+When Girls Studied Planets and the Skies Had No Limits

A really fascinating history about a strong woman I had never heard of before. My favorite quote: “When Mitchell was young, women were seen as scientists. But science wasn’t yet a job. ‘It is really challenging to us still today to think there was a time that it was totally normal for girls to be doing science,’ says Bergland. ‘There was a time when science was completely not gendered as male. It just wasn’t.'”

A curated list of the best things from around the web that you need to read this weekend!
