Friday: The Silence Breaker Edition

Is anyone else experiencing a bit of whiplash alternating between attending preschool winter concerts and watching the latest sexual harassment scandals unfold? While I’ve spent much of this year feeling sick to my stomach, the latest headlines give me hope my daughters and son may come of age in a more equitable society (at a bare minimum, I’m optimistic my daughters won’t get groped at work). I hope they watch a clip of the women of SNL singing Welcome to Hell or catch a glimpse of the 2017 person of the year cover and marvel at how far our country has come. When they do, we’ll all have the Silence Breakers to thank. Thank you.

Here are some links to kick off your weekend.
