Web Animation Weekly

👋 Hello from another guest-edited version of Web Animation Weekly. 

There's been a lot happening in the past week or so— I'm sure everyone has seen the impact of #MeToo and the womens' boycott of Twitter. It can be overwhelming, but it should be. This happens everywhere, and touches every facet of life and our industry. If you need convincing, read this open letter from women in the animation industry call for an end to harassment. Listen. Understand. Breathe— and then act meaningfully, in whatever form that action takes for you. Conversations aren't enough if change doesn't follow. 

This issue that begins with a feature which aims to help us stand in the shoes of others, and see the world as they do. I hope everyone has a good week; be excellent to each other.  

Ivana McConnell, Editor
