Terry’s Picks: Carrie Fisher, Star Wars, BBC America

Carrie Fisher: I was saddened by the loss of icon Carrie Fisher (and her mother Debbie Reynolds) last week. This piece in Indiewire sums up what so many of us are feeling: “In both the stories she told about her life and the stories she represented as a fictional icon, Carrie Fisher taught us that girls could fight, girls could fail, and that we could rise up again; that we could own our lives, and take ownership over our stories.”

Star Wars: In happier Star Wars news, The Atlantic posits that the franchise gets even more feminist with each installment.

BBC America: Enjoy a private lunch with BBC AMERICA President (and 2015 NYWIFT Muse honoree) Sarah Barnett at Michael’s in NYC – and support NYWIFT while you do it – by bidding online through Charity Buzz. The auction closes Thursday at 3 PM EST.
