12 Exciting Books About Women Over 50 | Book Riot

"The world we live in considers women over 30 “old,” particularly in Hollywood, unless they’re playing high schoolers (yuck). And women over 50? Forget it. For years, they’ve been relegated to playing crones and ancient aunts, both in books and in movies." -Tika Viteri

From assassin thrillers to holiday romances, these books about women over 50 show life doesn't end at middle age — it might just start there.

What We Remember: A Reading List on Archives - Longreads

"The material we deliberately preserve provides insight into what we value, and what we expect to value in an unknowable future. This raises the question: Why do we keep what we keep? Who decides? And, how does what we keep affect what we collectively remember in practice? If what we collect determines what we remember, we have to be mindful about what we’re willing to lose." - Hallel Yadin

Why do we keep what we keep — and who decides? An archivist digs and collects longreads on how objects and materials shape public memory.

Writers Wrestle with Twitter: Do I Stay or Go (and Where?)

https://lithub.com/writers-wrestle-with-twitter-do-i-stay-or-go-and-where/

Twitter was (is? still?) a social hub where emerging writers could pitch and promote their work to a vast audience, for free. Now that Twitter is in limbo, what happens to the writers?

After Elon Musk’s takeover of Twitter became official on October 27, Margaret Atwood tweeted, “Any truly viable alternatives to Twitter yet?” Atwood wasn’t the only writer looking for the next lite…

Sofia Coppola in Praise of Edith Wharton’s Beloved Antiheroine, Undine Spragg

https://lithub.com/sofia-coppola-in-praise-of-edith-whartons-beloved-antiheroine-undine-spragg/

Sofia Coppola discusses the characterization of Undine Spragg, in preparation for her upcoming adaptation.
“I loved spending all this time with Edith Wharton in her world, and hearing her sly, perfectly described observations. Wharton can really skewer someone so elegantly.”

Until I read The Custom of the Country, I had never met a literary character quite like Undine Spragg, nor encountered such an in-depth portrait of a classic antiheroine. Yet, we’ve all met women l…

What If… Listicles Are Actually an Ancient Form of Writing and Narrative?

https://lithub.com/what-if-listicles-are-actually-an-ancient-form-of-writing-and-narrative/

“As Foucault says: “there is nothing more tentative, nothing more empirical (superficially, at least) than the process of establishing an order among things; nothing that demands a sharper eye or a surer, better-articulated language.”

Measurement was a crucial organizing principle in ancient Egypt, but metrology itself does not begin with nilometers. To understand its place in human culture, we have to trace its roots back furth…

7 Books About Identity and Belonging by Arab Women Writers - Electric Literature

“As an Arab American woman, I can tell you that most Western portrayals of the Middle East in pop culture aren’t great. There’s a lot of war and terrorism. In movies, cities like Cairo and Beirut have that weird orange filter that makes everything look hot and polluted. And don’t get me started on the women. Why are we either a belly dancer or Princess Jasmine?” – Malaka Gharib, author of It Won’t Always Be Like This, and I Was Their American Dream

9 Books About the Complexities of Filipino Family Bonds - Electric Literature

“Kinship ties form the backbone of Philippine society, and the way we relate to others and to ourselves is inextricably linked to the tightness of our family bonds. For many, these bonds can also be a source of pain, since they don’t necessarily foster understanding, tolerance, or even care. The complicated nature of Filipino family bonds has been a topic of interest, even of obsession, for many Filipino writers both at home and in the diaspora.” – Monica Macansantos, author of Love and Other Rituals

Monica Macansantos, author of "Love and Other Rituals," recommends stories about the ties of kinship

Join us on Tuesday, April 5th from 6:30-8 PM EDT on Zoom for our first BOOK SALON of the year with Jessie Daniels on 𝘕𝘐𝘊𝘌 𝘞𝘏𝘐𝘛𝘌 𝘓𝘈𝘋𝘐𝘌𝘚: 𝘛𝘩𝘦 𝘛𝘳𝘶𝘵𝘩 𝘢𝘣𝘰𝘶𝘵 𝘞𝘩𝘪𝘵𝘦 𝘚𝘶𝘱𝘳𝘦𝘮𝘢𝘤𝘺, 𝘖𝘶𝘳 𝘙𝘰𝘭𝘦 𝘪𝘯 𝘐𝘵, 𝘢𝘯𝘥 𝘏𝘰𝘸 𝘞𝘦 𝘊𝘢𝘯 𝘏𝘦𝘭𝘱 𝘋𝘪𝘴𝘮𝘢𝘯𝘵𝘭𝘦 𝘐𝘵. Dr. Daniels will be in conversation with Alyssa Bowen and Carla Shedd.

In Jessie Daniels' new book 𝘕𝘐𝘊𝘌 𝘞𝘏𝘐𝘛𝘌 𝘓𝘈𝘋𝘐𝘌𝘚: 𝘛𝘩𝘦 𝘛𝘳𝘶𝘵𝘩 𝘢𝘣𝘰𝘶𝘵 𝘞𝘩𝘪𝘵𝘦 𝘚𝘶𝘱𝘳𝘦𝘮𝘢𝘤𝘺, 𝘖𝘶𝘳 𝘙𝘰𝘭𝘦 𝘪𝘯 𝘐𝘵, 𝘢𝘯𝘥 𝘏𝘰𝘸 𝘞𝘦 𝘊𝘢𝘯 𝘏𝘦𝘭𝘱 𝘋𝘪𝘴𝘮𝘢𝘯𝘵𝘭𝘦 𝘐𝘵 (Seal Press; October 12th), Daniels connects the recent historical research documenting the cruelty of white women slave owners in the antebellum South to those behind the effort to establish monuments to the Confederacy, to the majority of white women who consistently vote “against their own interests” and for the GOP. But the damage that nice white ladies do is not easily cordoned off as an issue on the right. There is, this book suggests, a kind of narcissism and sadomasochism at the heart of whiteness. Daniels closes the book with a roadmap for other white women with practical steps for how to affect much-needed change. Ultimately, 𝘕𝘐𝘊𝘌 𝘞𝘏𝘐𝘛𝘌 𝘓𝘈𝘋𝘐𝘌𝘚, shows how white women can be more than allies—they can be trusted accomplices in a shared mission of liberation for us all.

Today's goes out to a woman dubbed "the Mother of Women's Studies," Florence Howe. Florence began teaching Women's Studies in the 1950's before it was even a major or given a proper name, and she found that there weren't nearly enough literary materials to help teach the class. She decided the way to overcome this hurdle was by founding a publishing house herself that could be dedicated to amplifying the voices of unheard women. This publishing house was named The Feminist Press and today, fifty years later, it is the longest surviving women’s publishing house in the world.

Join us on Wednesday, March 23rd from 6:30-7:45 PM EDT on Zoom for a talk with Rupal Oza on "Ties to Land: Sexual Violation and Political Economy in Rural India."

What is the relationship between sexual violation and private property? In this talk, Rupal Oza will follow how the social life of r**e in rural Haryana is navigated through differential caste and community access to land. Beyond direct causal connections between land disputes and sexual assault, land anchors social relationships in Haryana. Oza's effort to recount these stories of dispute and violence illustrates what Rana Jaleel (2021) has called “r**e’s intimacies with property [which are] roughly tethered to expropriations of resources, lives, and land." In these intimacies, caste relations braid together who has access to resources and land.

“Little Mo paved the way for all of us who came after her” - Billie Jean King

Connolly won 50 consecutive singles matches and was the top-ranked U.S. player from 1951 through 1953, before a tragic horseback riding accident in 1954 ended the 20-year-old’s career.
