YA Onscreen Things

This week in YA Onscreen: the Oscars, The CW casting, and more.

Archie goes to Bollywood! For a new movie adaptation produced in India, that is.

Lin-Manuel Miranda, Dafne Keen, and director Tom Hooper are all in talks for the BBC miniseries adaptation of Philip Pullman's His Dark Materials.

Because The CW has barely existed without at least one vampire show on its slate (like, seriously; The Vampire Diaries debuted in its third year): there's a TVD/The Originals spinoff in the works starring Alaric and Hope.

In honour of International Women's Day, Freeform censored "I'm sorry" every time it was said by a female character. (I appreciate the intention (we ladies shouldn't feel like we have to apologize for just existing!), but shutting women up seems counterproductive.)

Social Media Things

Pride & Prejudice... & Otters!



Don't mess with a bookworm, because we'll troll the shizz out of you.


Sisterhood, not cisterhood!


Miscellaneous Things

Women in STEM: The Dana Scully Effect.

Mattel's releasing a bunch of new Barbies in their Inspiring Women line.

Inside the lives of bacha posh (which was a central theme of recent FYABC selection, When the Moon Was Ours).

800+ new words have been added to Merriam-Webster dictionary.


That's it for this week. Feel free to share your thoughts on these or any links we may have missed in the comments below!
