Week Five – Readings

To keep the Weekly Index on a calendar that aligns with Trump’s inaugural date and takes advantage of weekend down-time (such as it is these days), we’re aiming to get this out on Fridays now (yes, this is Saturday. Sorry). This way you can unwind into the weekend with a batch of great reads and a review of the horrific and not-so-horrific events of the past week (or, in this case, almost two weeks). And gosh, a lot has happened in the past twelve days. Ugh.

Some solid reads for the weekend:

  • bell hooks on feminism in the age of Trump: “I think that we have to restore feminism as a political movement. The challenge to patriarchy is political, and not a lifestyle or identity. It’s as if we have to return to very basic education for critical consciousness, around what visionary feminist politics really is about.”
