Weekly Wrap-Up

Sorry I've been MIA this week. I'm trying to get stuff back into balance in my personal and school life, and then I can spend more time online. In the meantime, here are some links to fun stuff that's come across my screen this week:

The Mary Sue shared a story from NBC Los Angeles about Virginia Hankins, the first female knight to joust at the country's oldest Renaissance Faire.

There's a great new gaming blog for women, and people who love women: Gaming As Women.

Also in the gaming world, if you haven't been following Pretty Gamer's Puppeteers Series, you should. It's all about the women behind the avatars.

Border House had a great write up about why we need more stories about Immoral Women.

Although I'm not usually a fan of pink-ifying of normally non-pink items, I'm totally in love with this pink droid made for a girl who has cancer (h/t to The Mary Sue).

Gender-Focus shared some great videos of Vancouver Kids Pink Project 2 events, where schoolkids wore pink shirts to raise awareness about bullying.

If you haven't seen it yet, you should check out Sandra Fluke's appearance on The View.

Shakesville shared some great photos of First Lady Michelle Obama and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, with Aneesa Ahmed of Maldives, at the 2012 International Women of Courage Awards ceremony at the US State Department.

Two Nerdy History Girls has a great post in honor of Women's History Month about the new book by Louise V. North, by In the Words of Women: The Revolutionary War & the Birth of a Nation 1765-1799.

And for more great reading about women in history, check out Shakesville's Aphra Behn's Reading Room - Women's History Month Edition, Part 1.

Viva la Feministe wrote abut Raising Empowered Daughters for International Women's Day.

I sooo want a pair of these Wonder Woman Converse All Stars!

Have a great weekend!
