First, some two to three weeks old, but still worth a read, essays and articles:
At Feministing, Chloe Angyal pondered if Facebook is enabling eating disorders.
At the same blog, you can read about Guatemala launching a femicide unit.
The blog Racialicious had a good article on racist fans of “The Hunger Games” series.
Also at Racialicious, Andrea Plaid made a tribute to Nichelle Nichols, who’s most famous for portraying Uhura in the original “Star Trek”- series.
Feminist Blogger Kelsey Wallace wrote a short, but spot-on and brilliant, critique of George Clooney’s film “The Ides Of March”. Like Ms. Wallace, I was also highly disturb by the films nearly anti-abortion message, as well as the way the female main lead was written as well.
Alya Dawn Johnson at The Angry Black Woman talked about the Bechdel Test and race.
At Bitch Media, Caroline Narby wrote an article on girls and Asperger’s.
At Colorlines, Hatty Lee posted some statistics which show that thousands of young black men die in gun crimes every year.
Since March is ending, which means the end of “Women’s History Month” is near, the team at Gender Across Borders recommends us to remember Marie Curie.
Second, the new:

Blogger Arturo R. Garcia, who’s works focus often on race and popular culture, explored how Felicia Day and Chris Hardwick reinforced Geekdom’s whiteness.
Update: As Maya Dusenbery (feminist blogger and activist) noted perfectly, a win for abortion rights has been made in Argentina! (Article written by Edurne Cárdenas)

The Welsh artists “Marina And The Diamonds” song “Oh No!” is witty and colorful social commentary, with a great melody. View the video below!
