Take 5: A news summary for anxious times
Lost your appetite for rolling news? These are the stories you need to know about this week…
This is a reader-funded newsletter – thank you for your support in keeping The Flock going. If you know of anyone who would enjoy our work, please do click the button below and share.
Hello, and welcome to this week’s Take Five – The Flock’s weekly news round-up designed to help you feel a little more in control of your current affairs consumption.
While the first section of this newsletter is not always the happiest read, it aims to let you stay up to date with the issues most affecting women and marginalised communities, without having to immerse yourself in wall-to-wall coverage.
As always, in addition to the week’s five key news stories, you’ll also find five positive tales to raise your spirits, along with five thought-provoking longer reads to dive into whenever suits you.
It’s news, curated especially for you, and in this overwhelming world, I hope that helps at least a little.
Now, to business…
