Things I Read But Others Already Blogged About:

  • Newsweek does an update on how little has changed for women at the magazine since the infamous 1970 sex discrimination lawsuit. Others wrote about how little racial, ethnic, and economic diversity there still is among women at Newsweek.
  • Jacyln Friedman on online dating: "Well, this is my test: When I look at personal ads, I look at their lists of favorite books, movies, and music, and they have to list women in all of those categories. They don’t have to have a majority of women, but they have to know that women exist in the culture and be fans of some of them. It’s a pretty low bar—or it should be."
  • Naomi Wolf, longtime feminist and activist, goes off the deep end.
  • Over at the Department of Labor, there's a new sheriff in town: Hilda Solis.
  • Lady Gaga really says things like this: “A year from now, I could go away, and people might say, ‘Gosh, what ever happened to that girl who never wore pants?’ But how wonderfully memorable 30 years from now, when they say, ‘Do you remember Gaga and her bubbles?’ Because, for a minute, everybody in that room will forget every sad, painful thing in their lives, and they’ll just live in my bubble world.”
