Due to the US election, we have decided to postpone all posts that would have gone up this week until next week. We are all sad and hurt over the results, and need to take some time to process it.

The results of this election are part of a worldwide backlash against social progress, and the effects have been seen everywhere, including in our speculative fiction and media critique communities. The Book Smugglers have a lovely, thoughtful post on their own break, which we recommend everyone read.

We, too, will strive to be more inclusive, more intersectional, and more progressive here at Lady Business. While we need some space to grieve right now, we will come back stronger and better than ever before, and will continue to fight for marginalized voices.

If anyone has cute animal gifs, suggestions on organisations that need volunteers, or self-care tips, come and join us in the comments?

Comments will be moderated and may not appear immediately, please remember the comment policy. We'll be back next week! Stay safe, take heart, be well!

Half of the Lady Business editors are at WorldCon, so this is totally gonna be a low-key, peaceful Chaturday post. Totally.

COME BE EXCITED ABOUT CONVENTIONS AND AWARD ANNOUNCEMENTS GUYS.

(Comment screening is possibly going to be turned on around 03:00 GMT Sunday morning for a few hours, as the editor who'll be monitoring comments has to sleep sometime. Feel free to keep commenting, they'll be unscreened when she wakes up!)

That sure was a week of emotional ping pong! But wow, what a week it was.

This week ends with a solidarity fistbump for all the girls in the audience of Ghostbusters (2016) who had or will have their sexual awakening due to Kate McKinnon.

Kate McKinnon winks and then smiles slowly


(We also finally named this. Go us.)

This week was so terrible that there are no words for it. Have a blanket fort.

Also, a poll. )

In theory, eventually this feature will have a name once we all agree on one. In the meantime, to open the festivities, a gif to sum up 2016 so far:

What's with your subtitle?


It's a riff off an extremely obscure meme only Tom Hardy and Myspace fans will appreciate.
