Links We Love: Women Are Changing the World... Literally

Welcome to Links We Love, a round up of eye-catching and worthwhile reads on modern motherhood, career and family balance, sustainable fashion, and a bit of all-important news from around the web. All of my favorite links this week focus on women — it might be because I’ve got International Women’s Day on my mind already (and planning something special)!

  1. The new family policy by the women-led government in Finland will grant 7 months of paid family leave to each parent, for a total of 14 months of paid leave. If this isn’t policy goals, then I don’t know what is.

  2. How one women is making giant leaps for female astronauts in space. Super excited about this one because a. woman are truly revolutionary and b. I’ve been keeping a little secret over here (hint: it involves a field trip to NASA!)

  3. Women move into high-skills jobs and acquire more education, and we’re here for it.

  4. Honest, powerful, and insightful piece by a woman I adore for always keeping it real. Read Alexis’s essay on why breast implants were important to her.

  5. I enjoyed reading this piece about venture capital and how the VC pitch process hurts female entrepreneurs because a. I know very little about the VC process in the U.S., and b. I recently attended an event with an inspiring female partner at a Chicago VC firm (and wanted to learn more).

What reads from around the Internet grabbed your attention this week?
