TGIF: Herstory – the midterm elections

SHARE

TGIF! This week, no surprise, we got caught up in the midterm elections. And while the results may not have been everything we hope for, there was a shining light: women candidates made history [ed. note: herstory].

Check back at the end of each week for our Friday finds. Here’s what we’re reading – November 9.

Dive into the details: Muslim women, Native Americans, and LGBTQ candidates had a night of historic wins by Caroline Houck for Vox and Women and LGBT candidates make history in 2018 midterms by Eli Watkins for CNN.
