Welcome to another weekly round-up, where we share (what we see as) the most interesting and important articles from the previous seven days. We’d love to hear your thoughts on any of the issues covered in the articles we’ve picked, which include everything from contraception to unicorn frappuccinos!
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.
The image is used under a creative commons license with thanks to Maureen Barlin on Flickr. It is a photograph of street art, painted onto the metal shutters of a closed shop. The image is a person turned so their profile faces the viewer. Their red/ginger hair is tied up and falls in tendrils around their face. Both their septum and the ear visible to the viewer are pierced. A dusting of freckles covers their cheek. In front of the shutters are tables and chairs which could be part of the outdoor seating area of a cafe or restaurant.
