The Revenge of Roger's Angels New York Magazine
It took 15 days to end the mighty 20-year reign of Roger Ailes at Fox News, one of the most storied runs in media and political history. Ailes built not just a conservative cable news channel but something like a fourth branch of government; a propaganda arm for the GOP; an organization that determined Republican presidential candidates, sold wars, and decided the issues of the day for 2 million viewers. That the place turned out to be rife with grotesque abuses of power has left even its liberal critics stunned. More than two dozen women have come forward to accuse Ailes of sexual harassment, and what they have exposed is both a culture of misogyny and one of corruption and surveillance, smear campaigns and hush money, with implications reaching far wider than one disturbed man at the top.

Venus Williams, Off the Court New York Times
Venus Williams became a professional tennis player in 1994 at age 14. Venus has seven Grand Slam singles events on her victory belt and 14 more in women’s doubles, won with her sister Serena, 34. Venus, with five Wimbledon singles titles wins, became the first African-American woman in 2002 to "earn the world’s top ranking in tennis since the onset of the open era in the late 1960s."
In 2011, her tennis career slowed, as Venus Williams battled injuries and Sjogren’s syndrome, an autoimmune disorder that results in joint pain and sometimes crushing fatigue. Under assault from the vagaries of life, Williams withdrew from the second round of the United States Open.
