1. "A woman’s body is everyone’s business but her own.” In this, the month when we are more likely to be wearing fewer clothes than any other, Taffy Brodesser-Akner writes a brilliant, searing account of the Western weight-loss complex and her own struggles with it.
2. Continuing an important theme: A column on the correlation between representation and self-worth by Charlie Brinkhurst-Cuff (opinions editor at the brilliant Gal Dem zine).
3. NPR rounds up the 150 greatest albums made by women. I can be a bit *eye-roll* at lists like these, but lots of good ones made the cut, should you be looking for some strong beach listening.
4. Newsflash: Working from home makes you more productive, not less. Here's the evidence.
5. An interesting new series from The Guardian: ‘All The Places I’ll Never Live’ is a place for ‘generation rent’ to share wistful property ownership dreams. Sigh.
Calling all Cardi B fans! The queen of no f*cks plays at MoMA PS1 next Saturday.
