While we at the Riot take some time off to rest and catch up on our reading, we’re re-running some of our favorite posts from the last several months. Enjoy our highlight reel, and we’ll be back with new stuff on Tuesday, January 3rd.
This post originally ran November 17, 2016.
I have been furious and exhausted and sad all week, but I still have to get up and go to my job, because my job lives in my house and can’t pour its own cheerios yet. (It’s kids. My job is my kids.)
I’m channeling some of my fury into helping here and now, into donating and volunteering, but the rest of it I’m pouring into my kids – into raising fierce little feminist killjoys, unrepentant SJWs, the nastiest little women. This is never happening again on my watch.
Here’s our reading list:
(This one is breaking my heart a little [a lot] but) Hillary Rodham Clinton: Some Girls Are Born to Lead – Michelle Markel
Gimme your recs. I want books about civil rights, about queer issues, about Latinx heroes.
I want books to show my kids how to change the world, and to prove to them that it needs changing.
