Some reading to start your weekend…

Two must-reads from the Poynter Institute on women and journalism: first, The New York Times is lacking when it comes to using female sources in news stories, while two journalists founded a magazine to highlight longform journalism produced by women.

From The Frisky, just a friendly reminder that those before/after fitness pictures you see on Pinterest aren’t exactly the real deal.

Any good reads I should catch up on?
