So International Women’s Day kind of sneaked up on me but I did read some good stuff put out for that day. Here are a few links and a video that I found particularly interesting.
50 Great Books About 50 Inspiring Women – who doesn’t want more good books on their TBR list?
From JK Rowling to Ellen: Four of the most influential and inspiring women today. – a short but powerful list from The LondonY including a video of Patti Smith when she was here in New Orleans a few years ago. I’m still kicking myself for not going to it but you can be sure I’ll not make that mistake again. I love her. She and her advice is so down-to-earth and honest. I highly recommend taking a few minutes to listen to this short vid below. Thanks to The LondonY for posting it for me to find! (BTW, The LondonY is a really cool website.)
10 great cartoonists you need to know: Celebrating International Women’s Day – this is really interesting. Although I’m not much of a cartoon fan I enjoyed this piece that makes me want to further explore the world of cartooning.
Let My People Go – a sobering piece on the modern day slavery of women around the world. This is a new-to-me blog, Pankhearst, that I found via a link on a friend’s blog, Exploits of the Volequeen. I’ll be reading more there.
3 Poems | Anna Lea Jancewicz – finally, I loved these three poems in FemLit Magazine. I hope you do too.
Now, ya’ll be sure and click over to read these great pieces and watch the video!
Have a great week-end and a great reading week!
