Saturday Link Love: Anne and Trauma, Death in Childbirth, and the Radium Girls May 20, 2017

Saturday Link Love is a feature where I collect and post links to various articles I’ve come upon over the past week. Feel free to share any interesting articles you’ve come along as well! The more the merrier.

Time’s Up for ‘Timeout’, on The Atlantic—“While not developed as a counterpoint to time-outs—timeouts ideally foster reflectiveness—the term time-in aims for more consistent and ongoing engagement with emotions, communication, and relationships.”

What Anne Shirley Means to Me, and Surviving Trauma, on Samantha P. Field—“All through the books, Anne struggles with self-doubt, anxiety, depression, and the leftover ramifications trauma and abuse leave behind, regardless of how happy her life with Gilbert becomes.”

The Last Person You’d Expect to Die in Childbirth, on ProPublica—“Yet every year in the U.S., 700 to 900 women die from pregnancy or childbirth-related causes, and some 65,000 nearly die — by many measures, the worst record in the developed world.”

The Forgotten Story Of The Radium Girls, Whose Deaths Saved Thousands Of Workers’ Lives, on Buzzfeed—“Radium’s luminosity was part of its allure, and the dial painters soon became known as the “ghost girls” — because by the time they finished their shifts, they themselves would glow in the dark.”
