She said: Kafka v. Orwell, free speech in Hong Kong, hairy art

A few pieces by women that caught our attention:

Rebecca J. Rosen, at The Atlantic, calls attention to one scholar’s argument that it is  Kafka, not Orwell, who best explains why we should be concerned about the NSA’s data collection program.

Emily Parker, writing for The New Republic, explains why there is some truth to Edward Snowden’s assertion that “Hong Kong has a strong tradition of free speech.”

Demetria Lucas, at The Root, weighs in on an interactive art exhibit entitled, “You Can Touch My Hair.”
