Where Leaning In Leads

I’ve mentioned before my dislike and distrust of the premise of  Sheryl Sandberg’s book Lean In: Women, Work, and the Will to Lead. Now there’s evidence, even compiled by Sandberg’s team, that shows leaning in isn’t enough for women to advance in the workplace. Turns out there really is structural sexism to deal with, too.

Ordinary Women

They’ve been busy at Feminist Frequency this year! After reporting to you about their second season, the writers and creators at FF have been posting new reviews of video games and branching out into non-gaming topics. Like the “Ordinary Women Campaign Video” for which they are now crowdfunding. Excellent!

Making Weiners Great Again

The Weiner’s Circle in Chicago came out with an homage of hot dogs to Donald Trump. Advertised as a footlong, this three inch frankfurter comes loaded Chicago style. And don’t even think about putting ketchup on it.

Sent in by Hillsmom – thank you, and we may be report back with a Bad Girl exclusive foodie review if this huge, really special deal is going on again this weekend.

Xena Is Out!

“Xena: Warrior Princess” is set for a new production, one where she’ll get to explore her only-hinted at relationship with her sidekick, Gabrielle.  Something’s in the airwaves with all these reboots of T.V. shows.  This one looks like it may be a good one, though. From our expert on Intergalactic Love, Tom.

Just Like A Cuppa Tea

This is a incredible piece on “Consent.” It’s long and drawn out, but I will put up and even welcome it because it is brilliant. Anita, thank you for sending it.

Thank you, HillsMom, for passing this on. It’s the truth in humor that makes it so potent.
