The Weekend Reading List

Weekend Reading List 212

I’ve been thinking about last weekend’s Women’s Final at the US Open all week. In fact, it hasn’t stopped playing on my mind. Serena Williams has been in the headlines every day since, and there has been an endless stream of think-pieces about the final.

One of the best commentaries I’ve read so far comes from Syreeta McFadden at ELLE. Syreeta writes, “Williams’ swift response to sexism in that moment was recognizable to any woman who’s reckoned with the social and professional costs of expressing righteous anger. Women often face backlash to our rightful indignation. Rage is no virtue for women; it is the provenance of men. Instead, we must be graceful.”
