Fun fact: I put together a lengthy and (if I do say so myself) great blog post for Blog Action Day 2014 on the topic of inequality today but alas I fell asleep last night on top of my roommate and lost all my work. #hooray! Instead, I've been pretending like I don't care about inequality, anyway, and have been slowly tending to my "new shit" music playlist, thanks to a super cool Dane I've befriended (who also dresses far better than myself). Have been listening to a few of these songs on repeat, and decided I would share because this totally makes up for it, right?


But because I failed to upload anything today, I wouldn't want to deprive you all of your activist juice so here are a few of my favorite reads from the day on the topic of inequality from a range of perspectives! I highly recommend perusing through these beautiful articles and supporting the bloggers behind them who were smart enough to save their work! Enjoy!

1. Being Black in the Fashion Industry | Style Honestly
A very powerful article written in first-person delineating personal experiences and feelings as a woman of color within a very white and western industry

2. Inequality in Mental Health  | Picnic With Ants
As someone who unfortunately is uneducated in the realm of mental health, this was a very eye-opening and personable article
