1. This interesting piece on taking less risks.

“Because by playing the long game and making “safe” and smart decisions, I know I will be able to innovate in bigger ways in the long run, and have greater impact, affecting millions of girls and women in the best possible ways—all over the world.”
— Saundra Pelletier, CEO of Evofem Biosciences and a co-founder of the Tryst Network

This was a good read for me because I’ve lived on the principle that risk=taking is positive, not negative. Hearing an opposite side made me question some of the risks I might be taking, or advocating others to take.

2. This Forbes list of empowering women, who remind me of the inherent #girlpower within each of us.

The future is female.

3. Damn. This Twitter thread describing women like male poets would.

The thing is, it’s humorous…and yet, incredible awful/sexist at the same time. I have mixed feelings, but mostly I’m glad this is being put out there. I think people need to read/know/understand/stop.

Can’t get enough? Here’s the (hilariously) savage chart for figuring out your poetic lines.

4. This piece about plant-loving millennials.

“Wellness-minded millennials, especially ones in large urban environments that lack natural greenery, are opting to fill their voids — both decorative and emotional — with houseplants.”

Yup, guilty as charged.

5. This thought-provoking piece on what a world designed by women would look like


6. This article praising FNC (Friday Night Chores)

Something I would never think of in a million years…but surprisingly not a bad idea.

What about you? Read anything interesting this week?
