Participating in the Los Angeles Women’s March on Washington with 750,000 people and millions more around the world was an incredible experience that I will never forget. I am proud that I exercised my civic duty in support of protecting basic human rights for all. Today is the first day of the next four years, and it’s time to get to work.
Here’s what I read this week:
1. Buying feminist merchandise is not political action.
2. President Obama‘s memorable parting words.
3. Malia and Sasha Obama‘s post-White House lives.
4. We need to protect the street vendors of Los Angeles.
5. Inside the weird, industry-shaking world of Donald Glover.
And a bonus: The poem “Interview,” by Dorothy Parker:
The ladies men admire, I’ve heard,Would shudder at a wicked word.Their candle gives a single light;They’d rather stay at home at night.They do not keep awake till three,Nor read erotic poetry.They never sanction the impure,Nor recognize an overture.They shrink from powders and from paints …So far, I’ve had no complaints.
