Congratulations to Dr. Bouman and all of the people who worked with her!
This panel, Decolonizing Feminism: Transnational Solidarity for Gender and Racial Equality, looks really interesting. Unfortunately, I’m an ocean away, so I figured I’d share for anyone who can make the trip.

This isn’t the first week of release in the US, but if you were inclined to go see the sequel to 2015's excellent if bleak and brutal Sicario — Sicario 2: Soldado — I would not recommend it. I wish I’d left in the first five minutes.
This is a weird question that probably says exactly how much I wear shorts at all, but whatever happened to bike shorts? I just want something to prevent chub rub under skirts and dresses this week considering it’s actually warm enough to have bare legs, but bike shorts appear to have disappeared off the face of the…
First the protest ^ . Walt Schaub asked today on Twitter where the protest music for this era is.
