Friday Listicle Round-Up

Running a little late today – I’m in Munich! Soaking up the sun and beer, marveling at the way that people obey the “don’t walk” signs, and getting asked for directions so often that I’m realizing I must look more than 1/8 German!

Anyway, obviously a huuuuuuge congratulations to Malala Yousafzai for being awarded the Nobel Peace Prize.

inspiring-life-quotes-by-malala-yousafzai-3-1024x687I didn’t write anything up for today’s day of action in the 11 Days of Action sponsored by the International Day of the Girl (check out my posts for Day 3, Day 7, and Day 8)- partly because I’m traveling, and partly because I don’t think I could come up with any better way to complete the sentence “#IamaGirl and I deserve…” than with “a Nobel Peace Prize”.

So we’ll start today’s round-up with Malala’s seven best moments.

Next, some famous women share their thoughts on aging.

I’d argue that this list of 18 things women need to stop doing to each other actually paints a pretty negative picture of women, but I’ll let you come to your own conclusion.

However, if you only read two of the listicles this week, I’d encourage you to read the next two.

First, a quick introduction to ableist language and 10 reasons to stop using it.

Finally, 10 ways white people can fight everyday racism (and be less racist).

Have a great weekend, all!
