Feminist Weekly: Get Some Perspective


Editor's Note: Every Thursday, I'll be rounding up my favorite Identities pieces from the past week so that PolicyMic Pundits can more easily read and comment on the great content being written about sex, sexuality, gender, and race in politics and culture, in addition to updates from our community and GIFs galore! You can subscribe to get updates delivered straight to your inbox.

Highlights This Week:

I’m having hardcore writer’s block this week.

I’ve been thinking of adopting a new motto for online writers — when in doubt, link out. (An adaption of Jeff Jarvis’s “Do what you do best, link to the rest.”) Today, I’ll follow my own advice, and provide you with the best thing I saw on the internet this week: a vlog from YA author John Green of Vlogbrothers (h/t the badass Ruth Engel of Pajiba.)

Get some perspective, or something. I’ll be more on my thought game next week.

Updates From Our Pundits:

Congratulations to Pundit Jared Milrad, whose organization Civic Legal Corps was awarded a NoVo Foundation grant. Fun fact: Jared credits his PolicyMic interview with Peter Buffett for this new fundraising success!

Andrea Garcia-Vargas earns a link-out at Slate. Read her piece: Company Wants Women to Wear These Anti-Rape Shorts.

Do you recognize PolicyMic’s Pundit Of the Week?

What did you do last week? I’ll share any outstanding writing achievements in our community, and highlight the great work that all of our Pundits do offline as well. If you have anything you’d like for me to include about yourself or a fellow PM writer, please send it along!
