Happy Monday! Here are your links collected last week—add more in the comments and I'll recap later in the week! Lead image from Facebook because it amused me.

A letter submitted by Aurora F from Queen Rania of Jordan to the girls of the world: "Role models can inspire. Campaigns can motivate. But if we want all girls everywhere to rise up, then we must find them, befriend them and support them."

From Ubertrout, an open letter to Dan Snyder, owner of the Redskins: "I fear you'll find out the hard way that if your team name only exists because there happened to have been a genocide, then it might be time to think up a new name."

A story that almost made me cry (found via the Bloggess), told in the form of yet another letter: "You may not even remember this moment, it was so small for you. I would be remiss, though, if I didn't fully explain how you…YOU, Jedi Master made a ruined moment beautiful."
