1. It’s Mother’s Day on Sunday. Thinking of all women, especially a couple groups on here.

2. Oh, and speaking of moms? This is an excellent piece by Lyz Lenz: The Pandemic Is Breaking Women and Now We Have to Have Babies? Go to Hell 

Let me spell it out for you clearly. The gender pay gap is real. And it’s worse for women of color. Women who take time off from work for children find themselves at even more of a loss of income. America also has the worst maternal mortality rate among developed nations because of deep institutional bias and a lack of standardized protocols. And this was before the pandemic.


3. I’m on a streak here so have this, too. Happy weekend!
