Femmostroppo Reader, September 21st 2012

If you follow me on Twitter, you may have already seen these items of interest encountered recently in my feed-reader or via twitter (please consider following some of the bloggers/tweeters) – marriage equality, the working poor, mental illness, gender roles and more. Sadly missing is discussion of Australia’s ongoing disregard of black deaths in custody. What did I miss? Leave your own interesting links in comments. Shameless self-promotion entirely welcome!
