Welcome to Monday ~ 8 July 2013

Welcome to Monday dear feminausts! Yes it’s getting colder, but at least we’ve passed the winter solstice and daylight will soon be creeping back into our lives.

A short collection of links this week – I had a particularly energetic day on Saturday (helping to convene the first ever event of the Victorian Youth-Led Network) so I’m quite pooped today.

Enjoy, and don’t shoot the messenger!
