Forbes: Turning the wage-gap debate on its head, Warren Farrell wonders whether women earn more than men.

San Francisco Chronicle: NPR's Kitchen Sisters tried to stay away from stories about moms and grandmas in their "Hidden Kitchens" series, but couldn't resist.


New York Times: What's the best work of American fiction in the last 25 years? "Beloved" by Toni Morrison.

Boston Globe: Columnist Ellen Goodman on the mommy wars. (Even if you never want to hear the words "mommy" and "wars" together again, this piece is worth it.)

Women's eNews: Facing flagging support (and even derision) in parliament, Kenyan activists step up pressure on lawmakers to pass anti-rape legislation. Rape and incest reports in the country have increased by almost 50 percent in the last four years.


Nerve's Scanner: What can we learn about women from this week's tabloids? That worrying is totally a good diet strategy and that women who try to have a little fun, even after suffering years with Charlie Sheen, should be severely punished, for starters.

And from the Web at large (with special thanks to BlogHer): Various campaigns promoting peace have fundraising drives and events scheduled this weekend. Happy Mother's Day!
