I’m really excited for the new film Obvious Child, starring the hilarious Jenny Slate and showing an abortion story we don’t usually see in movies.

On a related note, if you’re looking for movies written by, directed by and/or starring women, IndieWire does a weekly roundup.

The New York Times on the need for a compassionate response to the increase in undocumented children crossing the border.

The Toast amusingly tells you how to talk to babies about gender theory.

Famous authors offer thoughts on feminism.

Happy birthday to actress and transgender rights activist Laverne Cox.

I’m looking forward to seeing Key & Peele introduce the Hillary Clinton anger translator.
