News of the week – August 7, 2015

Happy Friday everyone! I thought I would try doing a weekly post where I share news stories that I found interesting. Because, why not?! Clearly everyone should be interested in what I’m interested in.

Gender Bias in Publishing – One woman writer’s story of what happened when she submitted the same material as both a woman and a man. Sadly, the results are exactly what you expect.

Donald Trump appeals largely to less educated americans – Duh.

Kermit finally gets out of his physically and emotionally abusive relationship – Hear that single ladies?

Book to screen adaptations – Forget about the weird CW version of Little Women – they’re casting Jennifer Lawrence as Rosie! I don’t know how I feel about this piece of casting. I mean, I love JLaw but I don’t know if she’s right for this role. But I’m just definitely happy they’re going to turn The Rosie Project into a movie. Yippee!!!

Get it together white people! – Probably the most important piece of journalism of our time.

Have a great weekend!!!
