The Feministing crew will be taking off from regular blogging on Fridays in December so a few of us can take much-needed vacations. Instead, we’ll be publishing the Feministing Five on Fridays instead of Saturdays, so check back tomorrow for Anna’s next interview!

My thoughts are with everyone at Virginia Tech, which is on lock down after two people were shot on campus.

My brainy law professor friend Dr. Jill Weiss on the importance of a recent trans employee rights win.
