ROUND-UP: What I’m reading and loving this morning

Today, I’m reading up on some of the coolest, most inspiring, most successful, most heroic, most fabulous women around. Take a peek at my picks from this past week:

I was born in a country where the birth of a girl is lamented while that of a boy is celebrated. The majority of Pakistani girls are married before the age of 18; most never learn to read or write. @ Elle

It’s not what anyone would think of as a good table, and just as I am debating whether I should make a fuss, the maître d’ rushes over and says, somewhat breathlessly, “Are you meeting Ms Coddington?” @ FT via Fashionista

 

Pizza junkie. Harry Potter addict. Broadway star? “I know,” laughs 14-year-old Emerson Steele. “I can’t believe it either.” But that’s exactly what’s happening for the Atlanta native, who plays the teen version of theater goddess Sutton Foster in the new musical Violet. @ Teen Vogue

 

In the world of early-20th-century African-American music and people obsessed by it, who can appear from one angle like a clique of pale and misanthropic scholar-gatherers and from another like a sizable chunk of the human population, there exist no ghosts more vexing than a couple of women identified on three ultrarare records made in 1930 and ’31 as Elvie Thomas and Geeshie Wiley. @ NYT Magazine

 

Of all the battles in our half-century culture war, perhaps none seems further from being resolved, in our laws and in our consciences, than abortion. @ New York Magazine
