On Our Radar: Feminist News Roundup
Here's all the news on our radar today:
• Nigerians are protesting in the streets of Lagos as the government in Africa's most populous country seems unable to track down and rescue the over 200 girls who were kidnapped weeks ago from their school. [RH Reality Check]

• Male students at a high school in Newport Beach held an NFL-style draft to choose prom dates. Yuck. [LA Times]
• The female characters on Orphan Black are refreshingly complex and original—but what about the show's "bisexual femme fatale"? [Autostraddle]
• We could debate all day whether Fargo really needed to be remade as a TV show, but at least the remake gives us the chance to spend some time with Deputy Molly Solverson. [Shakesville]
• This trio of Brazilian teenage girls is an awesome rap group. [The Hairpin]
• Did you miss the letter from Kathleen Hanna we published yesterday? Read her letter right here.
