On Our Radar: Feminist News Roundup
Here’s all the feminist news on our radar today:
• Missouri lawmakers may extend the state's 24-hour waiting period for women seeking abortion care to 72 hours. A brilliant student protested the bill by vowing to make committee members wait too: she promised to come back three days later to speak out against the bill again—after not needing to think about it. [Salon]
• Here's another great piece from Salon: Writer Soraya Chemaly points out how Republican male politicians are hostile toward single women with friends, like Wendy Davis. [Salon]
• Cherrios will air a new commercial starring the same interracial family that caused some racists viewers “discomfort” during last year's Super Bowl. Kid cuteness promised. [Jezebel]
• My mom would want me post this: Oprah turned 60 yesterday, and she’s damn proud of it! Lookin' good, O! [Oprah]
• Jemima Kirke of Girls narrates a new short film released by the Tate that addresses the lack of women artists in museums and art history books. [The Guardian]
• This may be just an excuse to practice my Franglais, but Féminin/Féminin, a new lesbian web-series by Cholé Robinchaud certainly has its Québecois charm. [Vimeo]
