BREAKING NEWS: WOMEN MAKE GOOD TV | WHAT I'M READING AND WATCHING

This week in writing that caught my attention, it's the usual mix of updates on representation in the media and some especially insightful writing on self care:

  • This writer makes the argument that #TimesUp and #MeToo are not taking down television's golden age. In fact, it's been women at the helm of truly innovative TV all along, and -- don't worry -- they'll continue to be. 
     
  • What it's really like to be young, female and sick

    "I feel this pull myself. I want my peers to understand just how much I went through before my twenties were over, but I also want to be cool/calm/chill/just-a-fun-young-person-no-big-deal."
     
  • The case for developing and nurturing a hobby or secondary passion that's completely separate from your daily work. 
     
  • We're a little late in sharing this, but if you haven't read the National Geographic's powerful statement on the magazine's long history of racism, you definitely should.

And now for your weekly cry: 

  • We're watching this behind the scenes on the making of the Greatest Showman's Oscar-nominated song, This is Me. You're gonna want to grab the tissues for this one. (Thanks for sharing Pras!)
