ICYMI is Fembot’s weekly news roundup, providing you last week’s feminist and social justice news.

  • Activists in Syria beg for the U.N and world leaders’ help in a video plea, to put an end to the ceaseless attacks on the city of Aleppo by the Russian air force and Syrian president Bashar al-Assad. The city has been devastated, and the total number of deaths since Bashar al-Assad’s government launched its military offensive on Tuesday continues to rise.
  • “The future always seemed bright, but it turns out that was just global warming.”
    Check out Lucy Mihajlich’s dystiopian novel, Interface, which was released yesterday.
