Welcome to another (slightly late!) weekly round-up, where we share (what we see as) the most interesting and important articles and essays from the previous seven days. This week’s collection of links includes everything from Beyonce’s “Lemonade” to feminist narrowboats! We’d love to hear your thoughts on either (or both!) of these subjects or on any of the other issues covered.
As always, linking to articles does not mean endorsement from the F-Word and certain links may be triggering. We welcome debate in the comments section and on Facebook/Twitter but remind readers that any comments containing sexist, racist, homophobic, transphobic or disablist language will be deleted immediately.
If you notice that we’ve missed out any important articles from the past week, feel free to let us know.
“In part, this a conversation about the arts and a woman’s place in the arts, but it’s also about our place in everyday life – the way we constantly have to consider our security. Whether that’s walking home at night or in our relationships with men, and the things that we have to navigate in terms of inequality or our role as mothers.”
“The issues for women are everywhere and it’s really important that we have a space to just be. It doesn’t have to be about looking at those issues.”
“I think the starting place always has to be about women and women’s capacity to breathe, so let’s take it from there and see what impact that has.”
