Three Interesting Things

1. Sarah Jeong's piece about inadequate women's health care explains a major plot point in episode 3 of "Star Wars" was fascinating. 
2. Illinois has started training beauty professionals on how to recognize signs of domestic abuse. They are not required to report anything to law enforcement, the idea is just that this might be a space where a victim is alone and able to talk freely. 
3. And to return to the Star Wars universe, this post about a women who took her Mexican father to see "Rogue One" and their resulting chat about a movie where one of the heroes sounded like him is touching.
