Saturday Link Love: Dating Violence, Black Power, and Miscarrying in Graduate School

Saturday Link Love: Dating Violence, Black Power, and Miscarrying in Graduate School October 20, 2018

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.

Why Did No One Save Gabriel? on The Atlantic—“Merritt was proud of his work, especially his efforts to keep together families that might otherwise be separated. He was a devout Christian, and to him this wasn’t just a job. It was a calling.”

No, Girls Aren’t More Abusive Than Boys, on Skepchick—“Even if we just look at dating violence among teens like this study, other studies show that sure enough, boys may get hit more but girls get hurt more.”

Fists of Freedom: An Olympic Story Not Taught in School, on Zinn Education Project—“When mentioned at all in U.S. history textbooks, the famous photo appears with almost no context.”

Scheduling My Miscarriage, on Nursing Clio—“My graduate school experience had become framed as something separate from my personal life, and when my personal life needed my entire self to focus on recovery, it left me feeling like I was betraying the expectations set out for the graduate student I also was.”
