Adventures in the Gender Trade
VHS

Kate Bornstein, writer and performer, was born a man. This documentary presents her frank account of her personal journey from unhappy boy child into liberated transsexual lesbian. Intercut with her satiric night club act called "Hidden: A Gender," are the stories of a wide range of people who refused to have their identity defined by whether they were born male or female. We are thus presented with a spectrum of colorful gender anomalies: drag queens, transsexuals, cross dressers, gays and lesbians... and those who refuse to be categorized. They want the right to be not "male" or "female," but whatever they choose in between. Why, they ask, must we have a bipolar gender system, when some other cultures can accommodate diversity?

Based on the assumption that all women share a common "female experience," much of 20th century feminist theory and writing overlooks the lives of the majority of women in the world. Johnnetta Cole corrects this bias by showing the vast range of attitudes, circumstances, hopes, fears, and struggles of a cross-section of women in the US today.
America's Working Women Rosalyn Baxandall Softcover 1976
The neglect of workng-class women in social history has not been accidental. It is part of a systematic exclusion of the woking class from the history and social records of our country, and attempt to dissuade the contemporary working class from imagining that it could be in control or its own destiny. We want to change this pessimism... women's experiences must be made central to both an analysis of what's wrong with today's world and a projection of how to create a better one.

In this spirit of challenge and optimism, America's Working Women offers contmporary essays, diaries, union records, letters, songs, social workers' reports, statistics an photographs that cronicle the lives of women laborers of virtually all cultures, races and work force areas, from 1600 to today.

From the social worker to the cop on the beat, from teh psychiatrist to the judge-- professionals have consistently ignored the problem. THis book provides first-hand reports from the victims and cites the failure of the legal system and social service agencies to cope with household violence.

Beyond the Double Bind: Women adn Leadership Kathleen Hall Jamieson
1995
"I can remeber," says lawyer Flo Kennedy, "going to court in pants and the judge remarking that I wasn't properly dressed, that the next time I came to court I should be dressed like a lawyer." It was a moment painfully familiar to countless women: a demand that she conform to a stereotype of feminine dress and behavior-- which would also mark her as an intruder, risin above her assigned station. Kennedy took one look at the judge's robe-- essentially "a long black dress gathered at the yoke" -- and said, "Judge, if you won't tlak about what I'm wearing, I won't talk about what you're wearing.
In Beyond the Double Bind, Kathleen Hall Jamieson takes her cue from Kennedy's comeback to argue that the catch -22 that often blocks women from success can be overcome. Sparking her narrative with potent accounts of the many ways women have beaten the double bind that would seem to damn them on matter what they choose to do, Jamieson provides a rousing and emphatic denouncement of victim feminism and the acceptance of inevitable failure. As she explores society's interlaced traps adn restictions, she drews on hundreds of interviews with women from all walks of life to show the ways they cut through them. Unlike other breakthrough feminist writers, she finds grounds for optimism in areas ranging from slow improvements in women's earnings to newly effective legal remedies, from growing social awareness to the determination and skill of individual women who are fighting the double bind.
With intensive research and incisive anyalysis, Jamieson provides a landmark of account of the binds that ensnare women's lives -- and the ways they can overcome them.

Breakthrough: Women In Writing Diana Gleasner
1980
Throughout the centuries writers have been held in high regard as thinkers, as molders of thought, as possessors of keen insight adn lofty intelligence. Male writers, that is. Those few women who dared to use the pen to make their voices heard faced censure adn ridicule. History bears this out, and today most of us express gratitude that times have changed. But have they?
For this entertaining and thoughtprovoking book, Diana Gleasner interviewed five noted women writers , who share personal insights into their craft-- the problems that beset them as women writers, and the rewards. Judy Blume is known to yung readers and their parents for her perception about growing-up years; Erma Bombeck's humor is loved by millions, but few know of her hard work and sacrifices; Erica Jong pioneered ther right for a womean to write frankly and openly about sexual feelings; Jessamyn West conquered fear and a crippling disease before writing opened up the world for her; Phyllis Whitney, through sheer perseverance, overcame obstacles to a writing career that would have shattered a lesser person.
With and overview of women writers historically and an account of their particular problems in a male-dominated world, plus a chronology of noted English and American writers, Diana Gleasner has created a delightful book thta promises inspiration to all writers-- male and female, published and unpublished.

Cartooning for Suffrage Alice Sheppard Hardcover 1994
As American editorial cartooning becomes more and more irrelevant, Alice Sheppard's fine book shows what a powerful tool this once popular medium can be. For ten brief years starting around 1910, dozens of women came out of nowhere and began cartooning for the womens' right to vote. Two or three like Rose O'Neil were well known as illustrators but most of the others picked up their pens simply to fight for what they thought was justice. Imagine! They won no prizes. No reprints in Newsweek. No 401K plans through their newspapers' corporate pension plans. Their only prize was the 19th Amendment. Sheppard does a great job of exhuming the stories of these funny, talented, now mostly forgotten cartoonists.

Chemical Dependency: Women at Risk Brenda L. Underhill
1996
I am truly honored to have been asked to write the foreword for this special volume on women. The articles in this publication are written by women who have dedicated their lives to improving the quality and availability of alcoholism and drug addictions treatment for women in the United States. As I read the work presented here, I was reminded of the power, richness and diversity that is characteristic of the hundreds of advocates for women's services I have gotten to know and love over the past twenty years. The range of issues covered, from treating chamically dependent lesbians and bisexual women, to using the relational model as a context for treatment, to the role of culture in treatment services and treatment effectiveness, reflect incredible progress and advancements in our understanding of successflul therapeutic models that assist women with alcoholism and drug addictions to begin and sustain recovery. It is wonderful to have this opportunity to read the work in this volume and reflect on our progress, especially at a time when so many of the gains we have made in treating women are threatened.
Twenty-five years ago, there was almost no gender specific treatment in this country. In fact, if you suggested that women might require services that were different from men, you were often ridiculed and isolated as a crazy fringe element. THis is obvioulsy no longer the case. While the stigma associated with alcoholism and drug addiction among women has not evaporated, even among treatment professionals in the field, the times are radically different.
Today, there are hundred of programs for women across the country. Many of these programs are providing the comprehensive and gender specific services for women, their partners, adn their families. Programs are providing treatment by and for women in loving supportive enviroments where women can get clean and sober, deal with the toll addiction has taken, and rebuild healthy and meaningful lives.
The articles in this collection reflect how much we have learned. We have learned how to break down the barriers that stand in the way of women entering treatment and know what the treatment experience must include once a woman gets there. We have learned that many women enter treatment with long and devastating histories of sexual and physical abuse and need support in integreating these past experiences in order to stay clean and sober. We have learned that culture does make a difference in how women internalize their feelings about addiction and what they need to move forward. We have adopted the work of leading feminist thinkers, especially from the Stone Center at Wellesley College where the relational model discussed in a number of articles her first originated. In short, we have changed the nature of addictions treatment by pushing the boundaries of conventional wisdom and trusitn our instincts about the power of trust, identity, and relationships.
The success of these efforts is reflected throughout the writings in this volume. Each article provides some of the best thinki g about the challenges of designing and implementing gender specific and culturally relevant treatment.

A woman gives birth to a baby girl. Little does she know, but she and her daughter are already unwanted. Three women are released from prison and their need for money leads them to take desperate measures. An unmarried woman seeking an abortion is rejected from her father's house by the violent threats of her brothers. Their crimes are vague, their guilt or innocence is unimportant. Their paths cross, the suspense of their intrigues heightens. Their plights are often too tragically similar. Their world is one of constant surveillance, bureaucracy and age-old inequalities. But this stifling world cannot extinguish the spirit, strength and courage of the circle of women.

She discovered public executions, allegations of human rights violations like massacres and torture, and a place where women are forced to beg because they are prevented from working. But she also found that the first voices of protest come from the most repressed, including an opposition group that uses hidden cameras to film the executions.

Cut From Different Cloth: Burgas and Beliefs
DVD

In 2005 documentary filmmakers Cliff Orloff and Olga Shalygin returned to Afghanistan's northern city of Mazar-i-Sharif for the third time since the fall of the Taliban in 2002. Despite a growing network of Afghan friends and colleagues from their two prior visits, they had been restricted in their ability to meet freely with Afghan women. The all-covering burqa, the high walled living compounds and cultural restrictions on women limited their access. Olga, a Pulitzer Prize winning photojournalist, was puzzled why virtually all the Afghan women she saw still wore the burqa#even though a new constitution was adopted that granted women equal rights with men. This time Olga brought her 27 year old stepdaughter. Serena lived for a month as an Afghan with Hasina, a 27 year old Afghan woman and her family. Serena became the eyes and ears of the filmmakers. Together Serena, Hasina and Olga set out on a journey to learn what it means to be a woman in today's Afghanistan. In the process they confront their own conflicts with the culture and traditions.

Daughter of Suicide
VHS

Opening a box of old family pictures, layering them into a collage of depression, suicide, and guilt, filmmaker Dempsey Rice tells the extremely intimate story of her mother's life and eventual suicide. Her mother Bonnie appeared to live a typical American life, for most of which she maintained the fašade of perfect daughter, wife, and mother. But she battled depression her whole life. Her suicide forces her family to reflect on their shared lives through the kaleidoscope of her final action, searching for a cause that can allow them to understand and to make peace. Throughout, the filmmaker tries to rationalize an irrational act and to find a way to forgive her mother. DAUGHTER OF SUICIDE is a deeply moving, impressionistic documentary that shares the inner thoughts and feelings of a family's personal tragedy.
Daughters of the Dust
DVD

A film of spellbinding visual beauty and brilliant resonant performances, Julie Dash's Daughter of the Dust has become a landmark of independent film. With great lyricism, Daughters tells the story of a large African-American family as they prepare to move North at the dawn of the 20th century. Using this simple tale, the film brings to life the changing values, conflicts and struggles that confront every family as they leave their homeland for the promise of a better future. In addition to this emotionally charged epic drama, Daughters explores the unique culture of the Gullah people, descendants of slaves who lived in relative isolation on the Sea Islands off the Georgia coast. As the generations struggle with the decision to leave, their rich Gullah heritage and African roots rise to the surface. Amongst a score of extraordinary performances are Cora Lee Day as Nana, the matriarch of the Peazant clan, Alva Rogers as Eula, who has been raped by a white landowner, and Barbara-O as Yellow Mary, a woman of the world who returned home "ruint" from Cuban.

Failing at Fairness: How America's Schools Cheat Girls Myra and David Sadker Hardcover
Sex discrimination in education
sexism in education
women in education
This book is a powerful indictment of sexism in America's Classrooms. THe findings from twenty years of research by two of America's most distinguished social scientists show that gender bias in our schools makes it impossible for girls to receive and education equal to boys'. Girls are systematically denied opportunities in areas where boys are encouraged to excel, often by well-meaning teachers who are unaware that they are transmitting sexist values. Girls are taught to speak quietly, to defer to boys, to avoid math and science, and to value neatness over innovation, appearance over intelligence. In the early grades girls, brimming with intelligence and potential, routinely outperform boys on achievement tests, but by the time they graduate from high school they lag far behind boys--a process of degeneration that continues into adulthood. By the time girls enter the working world, the damage has been done. Out daughters, tomorrow's women, learn that to be female is to be passive and deferential; We have, effectively, made girls second-class citizens in a world whose survival will depend on their contributions. The implications are devastating: If the cure for cancer is incubating in the mind of one of our daughters, we may never find it. The authors have produced a comprehensive, compelling, and essential resource, "a truly optimistic book, testament to the resilience of the human psyche and the power of education to create space for personal and intellectual growth."

Feminist Theory Josephine Dononan Softcover 1985
This is the first major study on the subject-- a comprhensive survey and analysis of the roots and developemnt of American feminist theory.
The author shows how the ideas of the first major feminist theorists-- Mary Wollstonecraft, Frances Wright, Sarah Grimke-- were shped by the Vewtonian world view of the Enlightenment. The nineteenth century saw feminism becoming involved with larger social issues. Most importantly for a fuller understanding of the works of feminists from the 1960's to the present, Professor Donovan underscores how profoundly the ideas of Freud, Marz and the Existentailists changed feminists' awareness of the societal forces that keep women oppressed.

A companion volume to Harriette Arnow's earlier book on the settlement of the Cumberland valley. It covers the same period of time, 1780-1803, and many of the settlers from the first book reappear here. Their sturggle for simple physical survival is still much in evidence. Yet in the main we see in Flowering the pioneer as a social being, for along with their log houses these settlers were building a culture and a society that would in time influence much of the american southwest. With the same loving detail that characterized the earlier book Harriette Arnow here tells the fascinating story of how British colonials moving across the mountains from the coast became Americans.

Fried Green Tomatoes
Food for our Grandmothers Joanna Kadi Softcover 1994
Adding to the literature on multiculturalism, this collection of essays, poems, and recipes highlights some of the experiences and attitudes of North American women of Arab descent. The contributors share strong nationalist sentiments about their root countries (primarily Lebanon and Palestine), rail against the bigotry and ignorance encountered by their families in North America, and uniformly denounce the Gulf War. While they fondly refer to their "sittees" (grandmothers) as the conduits of their ethnic heritage, they give few details of the culture itself. Since most of the writers are Christian, there is a lack of a Muslim viewpoint. Readers inspired to learn more or to explore their own Arab roots will find valuable the last section on other source material and contact organizations. Because of its fresh perspective, this work is a worthwhile purchase for any library.

Because so few girls choose to wrestle, and she wouldn't be allowed to wrestle boys, she would have no one to wrestle with at school. "If they make me stop wrestling boys," she says, "then I'm not going to get any competition because there aren't enough girls from Texas that are my age and weight.

Rounding out the romantic possibilities is Bobby, the bartender who flirts with Beth. The women clash as plans go awry, tragedy strikes, and hearts get broken.

I Was a Teenage Feminist Terese Shechter DVD


Imaginary Bodies Moria Gatens Softcover 1996
Imaginary Bodies is a collection of essays that offer a sustained challenge to traditional philosophical notions of the body, sex and gender. Moira Gatens explores alternative positions to dualism by exploring psychoanalytic, Foucaultian and Spinozist notions of embodiment. The book traces a largely neglected geneaology of philosophers from Spinoza, Nietzsche, Freud, Foucault and Deleuze and sets this tradition against that of the Enlightenment. What emerges are new ways of thinking those aspects of life which Gatens calls "imaginary."

Confining herself to neither philosophy of "the subject" nor an ahistorical philosophy of "the body" at the expense of broader ethical and socio-political issues, Gatens shows the many connections between theories of bodies politic and the (sexed) individual. She compellingly, lucidly, and trenchantly engages with the ethical, legal and sexual relations between men and women which are placed in its proper historical and political context.

Intercourse Andrea Dworkin Softcover 1987
Andrea Dworkin, once called "Feminism's Malcolm X," has been worshipped, reviled, criticized, and analyzed-but never ignored. The power of her writing, the passion of her ideals, and the ferocity of her intellect have spurred the arguments and activism of two generations of feminists. Now the book that she's best known for-in which she provoked the argument that ultimately split apart the feminist movement-is being reissued for the young women and men of the twenty-first century.
Intercourse enraged as many readers as it inspired when it was first published in 1987. In it, Dworkin argues that in a male supremacist society, sex between men and women constitutes a central part of women's subordination to men. (This argument was quickly-and falsely-simplified to "all sex is rape" in the public arena, adding fire to Dworkin's already radical persona.)

In her introduction to this twentieth-anniversary edition of Intercourse, Ariel Levy, the author of Female Chauvinist Pigs, discusses the circumstances of Dworkin's untimely death in the spring of 2005, and the enormous impact of her life and work. Dworkin's argument, she points out, is the stickiest question of feminism: Can a woman fight the power when he shares her bed?

Nibret is just 11 years old. She is being married to a man she has never met before, to cement family ties, secure property and because there are no schools providing her with any other choice. What are her chances of surviving the experience? Despite international treaties to protect women's and children's rights, recent statistics show that early marriage is on the increase in many parts of the world, with girls as young as 8 or 9 married off in areas of North and West Africa, the Sahel and Latin American. This increases exponentially the risk of complications from pregnancy and childbirth for girls whose bodies are not fully developed.

In so doing it critiques heterosexuality and shows why lesibanism is one of the fundamental issues of feminism today. The articles collected here were written by The Furies and/or taken from Furies publications over a two-year period.

Young Women
This book examines the snags in the feminist movement--from the dissolution of Riot Grrrls into the likes of the Spice Girls, to older women's hawking of young girls' imperiled self-esteem, to the hyped hatred of feminist thorns like katie toiphe--and prove that these snags have not, in fact, torn feminism asunder. In contrast, they show vibrance with which the movement has evolved, detail important political goals that still need to be achieved, and spell out what a world with true equality would look like.

Known as much for her social activism as she is for her raunchy humor, Margaret is a one of a kind phenomena who once again brings her distinctive and empowering personal voice to her devoted and adoring fans.

Poems Between Women Emma Donoghue Hardcover 1893
The collection Poems Between Women explores many facets of female-female relationships in poems not only about love or affection between or inspired by women but also about the moments that complicate and call into question the nature of sexuality and intimacy between women. Including women married and single, young and old, lesbian, bisexual, and heterosexual, the anthology covers historical development and changing mores through the seventeenth century, after the Restoration of Charles II, a time of relative freedom for women; the eighteenth century, when the cult of romantic friendship reached its peak; the nineteenth century, when women writers wrote about issues of same-sex desire indirectly and explored complex issues such as death in tones of weariness and resignation; and the twentieth century, when poets began to engage in more overt explorations of women's bodies, sensuality, and lovemaking. Emma Donoghue's introduction deftly guides readers into the rich tradition of women's poetry in English, exploring the relationships between poets and their muses and poets and their cultures. Poems Between Women is testimony not only to the recurring theme of the unique bonds among women but also to the universality of love, friendship, and creativity.

Re-Entering Eleanor Berman
1980
The first book specifically designed to solve the problems of women who want to get a job after a hiatus at home, Re-entering goes well beyond the usual career guide that often fails in such cases and instead makes use of the methods employed in the highly successful workshop for returning homemakers given at Hunter College. Using these techniques, job hunters whose children have passed infancy, those escaping the later "empty nest" syndrome, the newly divorced, windows, or women who simply want to augment the family income can now transform what is often a traumatic transition into a rich and rewardign period of personal growth.
In Re-entering, prospective job hunters can discover
- the best ways to overcome the initial fear associated with a return to work
-how to conquer the "catch22's" of job hunting: how to get a job when you lack experience and how to get experience if you can't get a job
-how to uncover the essential person underneath, along with hidden strengths that can yield surprising results
-the way to zero in on a definite career with an action plan that really works
a wealth of factual information on newst trens in today's job market
-an eye-opening section on the financial assistance and special programs availavle from colleges
-special techniques for women who want to make up for lost time by moving ahead fast
-invaluable advice on keeping the family back home happy
At the close of each chapter, there are firsthand accounts from re-entering women, each of whom dramatically illustrates the particular points under discussion. They offer a realistic but also inspiring picture of what these successful back-to-work strategies can accomplish, showing how the homemaker with little or no job experience can carve out arewarding career. The appendixes list state-by-state sources for counseling, education, and financial and career information, enableing women in every part of teh country to get the information and assistance they have so urgently needed.

Recreating Motherhood: Ideology and Technology in a Patriarchal Society Barbara Katz Rothman Hardcover
Motherhood
Patriarchy
Feminism
Technology - social aspects
Baby M and Baby Doe, infertility and in vitro fertilization, abortion and adoption, delayed childbearing, teenage mothers, sperm donors and surrogacy--all are manifestations of biomedical and social "advancement" with which we have become familiar in recent years. Yet they are often regarded as distinct issues, only looosely related under the rubric of reproduction.

In this powerful and moving book, Barbara Katz Rothman shows instead how they form a complex whole that demands of us in response a coherent vision--a woman-centered, class-sensitive way of understanding motherhood. We need, she says, a social policy for dealing with mothers and motherhood that is consistent with feminist politics and feminist theory.

Skin Dorothy Allison Softcover 1994
Impassioned, personal and highly intelligent, Allison's ( Bastard Out of Carolina ) collection of published writings and addresses from the past decade examines issues of class and sexuality through the intricate lenses of autobiography and the literary experience. "I try to live naked in the world," says the writer, as she blends a tender reminiscence of her mother's death with an attempt to make sense of her mother's life. "I refuse the language and categories that would reduce me to less than my whole complicated experience," she proclaims, advancing the idea that those born "poor, queer, and despised" have an imperative to do more than simply survive. All of these finely wrought essays discuss the author's emotions and politics during years marked by poverty, abuse and the realization that her sexual nature was a threat even to lesbians and feminists. The power of the writing lies in its fluid, almost musical ability to move from one dimension to another, so that politics are laced with accounts of childhood wounds, sexual pleasures and an ongoing look at how the author's work as a writer of fiction meshes with her fervent will to speak only the truth. Strap-on dildos, backyard barbecues, family terrors, bygone lovers and the literary canon all find their way into this exuberant volume by a writer who exposes even the most painful realities with reverence and awe

Slow Motion: Changing Masculinities, Changing Men Lynne Segal Softcover 1990
This book approaches the changing nature of men's lives and experiences in a new way, by looking not at masculinity, but at specific masculinities. From tough guys to martial men, to camp, gay, black-macho, and anit-sexist men, their competing images and roles are anaylized.
From the complex and contradictory web of different male identities a new approach to sexual politics begins to emerge . Segal maintains that men's resistence to change is not simply due to psychic obstinacy or incapacity- men can and do change.

Still Waiting - Life After Katrina Ginny Martin DVD 2007
The day before Hurricane Katrina washed over Saint Bernard Parish, Connie Tipado opened her Dallas home to her extended family - all 155 of them. When they evacuated, they did not imagine that their homes would be swamped by 10 feet of water, delaying their return for months. Over steaming pots of homemade gumbo, Connie and her kin draw togehter, consoling one another in well-knotted bonds of love and reciprocity that have functioned for generations in their Afro Creole culture. But the lure of life on the bayou draws one after the other back to their ruined communities on the banks of the Mississippi. They are at first overjoyed to be back on familiar ground. But as the months drag by, their hopes for reclaiming life as it once existed look increasingly remote. The lack of government action, the reality of cramped living quarters, and the racial pressures that begin to emerge create strain and unexpected difficulties. Still Waiting draws viewers into this remarkable story of resilence, family and attachemt to place.
Story of the Hour, The - Kate Chopin

Storyteller Leslie Marmon Softcover 1981
Novelist, poet, essayist, photographer, cinematographer, and in every case storyteller: Leslie Marmon Silko is perhaps the most familiar and most often anthologized American Indian writer today, and her novel Ceremony is as widely recognized as any other contemporary American novel.1 In Ceremony as in all her other work to date, Silko's creative vision has been shaped in nearly equal measure by the land and by the variety of oral and written storytelling performances that were a part of her life growing up at Laguna Pueblo. According to both cultural anthropology and oral tradition, Laguna has always been one of the most adaptive pueblo communities in the Southwest, and many of the stories comprising Laguna oral tradition preserve the complex strategies of resistance and assimilation that have enabled the people to survive and adjust to myriad external pressures. Like her native Laguna, Silko's work is a study in cultural mediation2 and spirit transformation. Again and again her creative vision celebrates the transformative power of story and place, working together for life in a healing way.

Tarnation is a wondrous achievement, a personal essay that miraculously balances despair and tragedy with an overriding air of hopefulness. Raised by a schizophrenic mother and abusive foster parents in and around Houston, TX Jonathan Caouette escaped from his bleak surroudings by hiding behind a video camera. Since he was eleven, Jonathan obsessively documented himself and those around him, resulting in a stockpile of videotapes that appeared to have no certian purpose. Around this time, he made another dramtic discovery: he was gay. Inspired by underground horror films, musical theatre, and other forms of pop culture, Jonathan knew that he one day wanted to be a performer, and so, in his early twenties, he moved to New York City, where he acted in student films and found stability in the form of his loving boyfriend, David. When he discovered Apple's easy-to-use iMovie editing software, Jonathan began the arduous process of assembling the endless footage of his past. The result is an autobiographical documentary that defies descrption, a heart-wrenching, devastating testament to person human spirit. Even after all that his mother put him through, Caouette heroically stands behind her, which gives Tarnation its unwavering soul and makes it must-see viewing for everyone.

The Cabbridge Companion to Heidrgger Charles Guignon Softcover


The Cambridge Companion to Heidegger Charles Guignon Softcover 1993
Martin Heidegger is now widely recognized as one of the greatest philosophers of the twentieth century. He transformed mainstream philosophy by defining its central task as asking the 'question of being'. His thought has contributed to the recent turn to hermeneutics and to current postmodernism and poststructuralism. Moreover, the disclosure of his deep involvement in Nazism has provoked much debate about the relation of philosophy to politics. This new edition brings to the fore new works, as well as new approaches to scholarship. The essays cover topics such as Heidegger's conception of phenomenology, his relation to Kant and Husserl, his account of truth, and his stand on the realism/anti-realism debate. This edition includes a new preface by the editor, revised versions of several essays from the first edition, and an exhaustive and up-to-date bibliography, providing guidance for both newcomers to Heidegger's work and established scholars.

The Changing Roles of Men and Women

1962
In Sweden, the debate on the problems of the family has progressed beyond the conflict between women's two roles-in the home and on the job-to encompass the two roles of men as well. Prepared by a team of six Scandinavian experts, this survey of contemporary attitudes of men and women at work and at home-as solid as it is provocative-serves to examine, illustrate, and dramatize the efforts on the part of the Swedish government to increase man's right to a larger position within the home, as well as women's right to a career and family.

The Cult of Thinness Sharlene Nage Hesse-Biber Softcover 2007
Whether they are rich or poor, liberal or conservative, religious of atheist, thriving or stagnant, most American women have one thing in common--they want to be thin--or thinner. And they are willing to go to extraordinary lengths to get that way, even to the point of starving themselves. Why are America's women so preoccupied with weight? Is there more to this preoccupation than weight alone? What has caused recur numbers of young women--even before they reach their teenage years--to suffer from weight obsession, poor body image, and disorder eating? Why are some young women able to resist cultural pressures to be thin when others are not? The cult of Thinness, Second Edition, answers these questions and more.

Hesse-Biber goes beyond traditional psychological explanations of eating disorders to level a powerful indictment against the social, political, and economic pressures women face in a weight-obsessed society society that is, ironically, becoming increasingly more fat while worshipping a progressively more thin ideal. Hesse-Biber examines the profit motives of corporate America that promote this paradox. Moreover, a new chapter on preteens, masculinity, ethnicity, gay and lesbian body image, ant the globalization of body image issues aligns a refined cultural study of body image with the trends found in current research studies, demographic data, and popular culture.

The God of Small Things Arundhati Roy Hardcover 1997
The year is 1969. In the state of Kerala, on the southernmost tip of India, a skyblue Plymouth with chrome tailfins is stranded on the highway amid a Marxist workers' demonstration. Inside the car sit two-egg twins Rahel and Esthappen, and so begins their tale...

Armed with only the invincible innocence of children, they fashion a childhood for themselves in the shade of the wreck that is their family--their lonely, lovely mother, Ammu (who loves by night the man her children love by day), their blind grandmother Mammachi (who plays Handel on her violin), their beloved uncle Chacko (Rhodes scholar, pickle baron, radical Marxist, bottom pincher), their enemy, Baby Kochamma (ex-nun and incumbent grandaunt), and the ghost of an imperial entomologist's moth (with unusually dense dorsal tufts).

When their English cousin, Sophie Mol, and her mother, Margaret Kochamma, arrive on a Christmas visit, Esthappen and Rahel learn that things can change in a day. That lives can twist into new, ugly shapes, even cease forever, beside their river "graygreen. With finish in it. With the sky and trees in it. And at night, the broken yellow moon in it."

The brilliantly plotted story uncoils with an agonizing sense of foreboding and inevitability. Yet nothing prepares you for what lies at the heart of it.

The God of Small Things takes on big themes--love. Madness. Hope. Infinite Joy. Here is a writer who dares to break the rules. To dislocate revived rhythms and create the language she requires, a language that is at once classical and unprecedented. Arundhati Roy has given us a book that is anchored to anguish, but fueled by wit and magic.
The Grandes Dames Stephen Birmingham Hardcover 1982
Once again, the author of California Rich, Real Lace and Our Crowd has written a book as rich in colorul anecdotes and personalities as it is in its social history.
The Grandes Dames is the fascinating story of those rich and powerful women who for the better part of a century-- from the 1870's to the second world war-- ruled Amewrican society and our most cherished cultural institutions with flair, inventiveness and the sure hand of authority that make today's jet set and beautiful people seem like thin parodies. inked by money, marriage, privilege, power, and class, these women fromed a grand Amerian matriachy that dominated the social and cutural life of our nation. They were the center of high society, just as they were the center of family life, leaving to thier husbands the business of amassing colossal fortunes.
Here are the great families-- Astor, Rockefeller, McCormick, Belmont, Huntingtion, Cromwell, Gardener-- who for better or wrse froged a national identity, creating art museums, opera houses adn symphony orchestras almost as private clubs--or as public extensions of their rivate selves. These were women who knew what they wanted and precisely how to get it, and had the ability to rise serenely above all criticism, malice and jelousy. There was the formidable Caroline Astor who, when asked to deposit her fare upon boarding a streetcar, replied, "No, thankyou, I have my own favorite charities." There was Abigail Adams Homans who, while seeking refuge form a Boston blizzard, was told her husband's exclusive club could not accommodate and unescorted woman. Only after she suggested she share a room with her cabdriver did the club capitualte. Edith "Effie" Stern who, as her child approached school afe, had a school built for her. And there was the grand Isabella Stewart Gardener, who once said to a contemporary who was babbling about Mayflower ancestors, "Of course, immigreation laws are much mor strict nowadays."
Such women had looks and manners and that elusive ingredient know as style, but above all they had a snse of personal theater about them-- the sense that when one of them entered a room, something important had happened. They were The Grand Dames.

The Greatest Silence - Rape in the Congo Lisa F. Jackson DVD 2007
"The sexual violence in Congo is the worst in the world. The sheer numbers, the wholesale brutality, the culture of impunity - it's appalling." - John Holmes, UN

Since 1998 a brutal war has been raging in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC). Over 4 million people have died, and many tens of thousands of women and girls have been systematically kidnapped, raped, mutilated and tortured by soldiers from both foreign militias and the Congolese army. Until now, the world has known nothing of their stories. A survivor of gang rape herself, Emmy-Award winning filmmaker Lisa F. Jacson has created an extraordinary film in which these brave women finally speak.

The Proceedings of the International Tribunal on Crimes Against Women Diana E. H. Russell and Nicole Van de Ven
1976 women-crimes against- congresses Over 2,000 women from 40 countries gathered for this historic event. They were not appointed by parties, nor by nations, nor by any political or economic group--it was as women that they expressed themselves. By transcending overwhelming differences in nationality, culture, class, race, sexual preference, age, and politics, women from around the world moved their stuggle for liberation into an international context.

Anti-Feminism
Feminism
Conservatism
Liberalism
Sex discrimination against women
Despite feminist predictions that women's liberation would forge a national sisterhood steeped in common values and goals, today's most outspoken voices come from women who ironically embody the ideal of independence even as they denouce the principles of "old" feminism. Drawing on more than one hundred interviews, Elinor Burkett takes readers into the lives, mindes, and hearts of conservative women, from prominent politicians like Elizabeth Dole to gun-toting militiawomen. Neither an attack on feminism nor a defence of antifeminism, this book is an evenhanded and lively exploration of a movement that is rewriting the rules, not only for women, but for American society as a whole.

The Sexual Politics of Meat Carol J. Adams Softcover 1992
Many cultures equate meat-eating with virility, and in some societies women offer men the "best" (i.e., bloodiest) food at the expense of their own nutritional needs. Building upon these observations, feminist activist Adams detects intimate links between the slaughter of animals and violence directed against women. She ties the prevalence of a carnivorous diet to patriarchal attitudes, such as the idea that the end justifies the means, and the objectification of others. In Frankenstein , Mary Shelley made her Creature a vegetarian, a point Adams relates to the Romantics' radical politics and to visionary novels by Charlotte Perkins Gilman, Dorothy Bryant and others. Adams, who teaches at Perkins School of Theology, Dallas, sketches the alliance of vegetarianism and feminism in antivivisection activism, the suffrage movement and 20th-century pacifism. Her original, provocative book makes a major contribution to the debate on animal rights.

Rape--United States
"The intelligent well-informed general reader will find this volume a thoughful, ease to read, authoritative, and comprehensive description and analysis of the problem. For the mental health professional it should provide an excellent orientation to the current state of knowledge in this area and an index to the emerging new directions in investigation and action. The bibliography is wide in its coverage and could prove to be an excellent starting point for intensive analyses. The point of view that Dr. Hursch develops shows so much common sense and is so practical that I am sure that the general public will find her book to be most useful. Especially, though, police and law enforcement officials will find her treatment of the data and problem to be of inestimable help to them in carrying out their job."

The Women Who Hate Me Dorothy Allison Softcover 1991
Allison ( Trash ) writes poems that brim with emotion, sometimes focused and tender, but more often confused and enraged. The subject in this expanded edition of her collection of poems is Allison's lesbianism. Although she mentions the freedoms denied her and her "sisters," the poet ultimately seems to care little for furthering peoples' acceptance of lesbianism. Indeed, she goes so far as to proclaim: "I do not believe anymore in the natural superiority / of the lesbian." The poet realizes, bitterly, that she has been unable to escape her past. Abused as a child, she seeks dominant lovers who like to play rough: "I have never been able to resist" a woman who "talks mean" and "makes shell-puckered hickey-bite marks." As a child, the poet's family was "despised," her mother called " no-count, low down, disgusting " ital in text for her affairs with various "uncles." Allison acknowledges that she is her "mama's daughter," with "at least as much lust / in her life as pain." The poet's imagery is explicit and jarring but her wordplay unpolished. Except for a couple of sentimental love poems, what takes precedence here is a sense of vengeance against all who "hate" her.

Tomboys! Feisty Girls and Spirited women
DVD

Louisa May Alcott was a tomboy, as was her heroine, Jo March, in Little Women. But Jo, like most literary tomboys, was tamed once she reached adolescence. Real-life tomboys tell a different story. In this lively, inspiring documentary, interviews with African-American teenager, Jay Gillespie; firefighter, Tracy Driscoll; lesbian artist, Nancy Brooks Brody; and political activist. "Granny D," are intercut with personal photographs and archival footage to celebrate tomboys of all ages. The connection between the rebel girl and the spirited woman is gloriously clear. Their tales of energy and enterprise are a revelation to us all.

Transforming Knowledge Elizabeth Kamarck Minnich Softcover 1990

Transforming Knowledge Elizabeth Kamarck Minnich Softcover 1990
Transforming Knowledge suggests that education can serve neither the quest for knowledge nor the promise of a genuinely democratic system until some very basic intellectual errors are uncovered and corrected. Examining the heritage of a tradition created primarily by white Euro-American men who considered themselves the norm and the ideal for all humankind, Elizabeth Kamarck Minnich identifies these errors, characterizes them, and demonstrates how they work to distort and limit our knowledge. She cites work primarily by feminist scholars and activists, but also from ethnic, peace, and ecological studies, and argues that a reorientation of education and thus thinking and thus knowledge makes sense.
This book is the result of more than twenty years of work in higher education during which the author talked with thousands of faculty members, administrators, students, and community people about the necessity to transform the curriculum in this country. Drawing also on her years of work with Hannah Arendt and on Dewey, Kant, Plato, and Socrates, Minnich confronts the "dominant meaning system" that perpetuates errors in thinking, particularly faulty generalization and universalization, circular reasoning, mystified concepts, and partial knowledge.

In light of the heated debate in which such critics as William Bennett and Allen Bloom charge that a return to "the classics" is the only acceptable route for education, Transforming Knowledge offers a philosophical analysis of the cultural, intellectual, political tradition behind our curriculum. Minnich warns that it is in and through education that a culture, and polity, not only tries to perpetuate but enacts the kinds of thinking it welcomes, and discards and/or discredits the kinds it fears

Trught and Method Hans-Georg Gadamer Softcover 1995

Truth and Method Hans-Georg Gadamer Softcover 1994
Hans-Georg Gadamer#s Truth and Method (Wahrheit und Methode, 1960) has as its major theme that truth cannot be adequately explained by scientific method, and that the true meaning of language transcends the limits of methodological interpretation. Gadamer argues that hermeneutics (the science of interpretation) is not merely a method of determining truth, but that it is an activity which aims to understand the conditions which make truth possible. According to Gadamer, the role of hermeneutics in the human sciences is not the same as the role of methods of research in the natural sciences. Hermeneutics is not merely a method of interpretation, but is an investigation of the nature of understanding, which transcends the concept of method. Truth is not something which may be defined by a particular technique or procedure of inquiry, but is something which may transcend the limits of methodological reasoning. The truth of spoken or written language may be revealed when we discover the conditions for understanding its meaning

Undetected Rapist, The
VHS

This videotape is the reenactment of pieces of interviews conducted by Dr. Lisak, the Director of Men's Sexual Trauma Research Center at the University of Massachusetts at Boston, with fraternity members during one of his studies of sexually predatory male behavior. In it, a college male explains how unsuspecting women are targeted for intoxication and rape by members of the fraternity. He uses works like "target" and "prey" to refer to the women. After dehumanizing their victims with this language, he then blames them for their own victimization. The interview indicates that these rapes are a regular occurrence on and off campus, and the rapists are usually never detected, much less punished in any way. The video closes with an analysis of the interview and the interviewee, including the tones and meanings of the language the fraternity member used to describe the rape behavior, by Dr. Lisak.

Women and Indians on the Frontier, 1825-1915 Glenda Riley Softcover 1984
Pioneer women going west carried distinct images of themselves and of American Indians. Their views reflected stereotypes pervading the popular literature and journalism of the nineteenth century: women were weak and defenseless, their westward trek was a noble mission, and American Indians were savages. But as a result of their frontier experience, many women changed or discarded their earlier opinions. This book is the first account of how and why pioneer women altered their self-images and their views of American Indians.

Women in Modern America: A Brief History Lois W Banner Paperback 1984

Women In Modern America: A Brief History Lois W. Banner Paperback 1984
Until the mid-1960's, the history of women was neglected by historians. A few general works were written for time to time, but most authors assumed that the women's suffrage movment was all there was to it. Increasing concern with social history on the part of historians and the advent of a new feminist movement coincided to stimulate studies about women. The result has been to create a field of historical investigation that seeks to rescue both major figures and the ordinary woman from obscurity and provide a corrective to the raditional histories from which women are absent.
This book examines the history of women in America from 1890 to the present. Three periods, each characterized by distinctive qualities, seem to stand out. The first, from 1890 to 1920, ws one of energy and innovation; many of the traditional dicriminations against women came to an end, and a impressive number of feminist and women's reform groups wre organized. The second period, from 1920 to1960, was one of greater complacency about wonen's problems; the nation struggled with depression and war, and feminist groups declined in size and vitality. The third period, from 1960 to the present, witnessed the emergence of a feminism more radical than any of its predecessors.
In my study of this era, i have had all three aims: to explore the reasons why feminism rose and fell and rose again; to examine the history of various groups of women, including the working class, blacks, immigrants, fam women, and the middle class, each of which responded to the pressures and opportunities of the times in a different way; and, finally, to focus on the dramatic and continuing struggle waged by determined, innovative women to achieve their rights.
I have attempted to examine and correlate the colpex factors that have affected women's lives. Common strains run through every period. One has been the influence of a society undergoing rapid changes-- the progress of industrialization and the move to the cities; changing attitudes towards sex and marriage; the growing power of the mass mdia as cultural conitioners; the expansion of the economy and of the certain occupations within it, such as secretarial work; two world wars that opendd up new jobs for women; a depression adn a war that made the family seem a haven of stability and security; and technological advancements that offered women more leisure time. A second factor influencing women in America throughout these years has been the deep and abiding image of woman as the "good" wife, mother, homemaker, and repository of human virtue on the one hand ("virgin Mary" image of Christian belief) and as the "evil" temptress (the Pandora of classical mythology and the Eve of Judeo-Christian beleif) on the other-- two stereotypes taht have dominated thinking about women throughout the history of western culture and that continue to exist today. A thrid factor has been the overriding dicrimination against women in every area of their lives, whether they have been seeking education, jobs, justice under the law, or simply the freedom to lead their lives as they see fit.
This history of women is also a history or feminism, a term that is difficult to define precisely. Generally, "feminism" has meant the advocacy of the rights of women. But the view of what constitues those rights has changed since the mid-nineteenth century, and most especially since the term "feminism," first coined in France, was introduced in this country in about 1910. Subsequently, "feminism" came to replace the standard nineteenth-century American term "woman's rights." To solve the problem of definition, different terms are used to distinguish the vairous kinds of feminism. I use the term feminist broadly to apply to the those men and women who have consciously worked to end discriminations against women and to gain gender equality. Radical feminist refers to thoe who envistion a fundamental reordering of scociety and /or gender relationships as necessary to achieve equality. For those feminists whose position is uncompromisingly hostile to patters or institutions of dicrimination, I use the term militant. Social feminist (a term first coined by historian William O'Neill) aplies to activists for whom working for social reforms (generally involvign women) takes priority over such strictly women's causes as suffrage or the Equal Rights Amendment. Finally, domestic feminists are those who argue that a fundamental solution to women's problems lies in raising the status a fundamental and ending the common deprecation of domesticity and motherhood within American culture.
To help the reader who wishes to pursue any particular aspect of this history mor fully, I have provided a critical bibliography at the end of each chapter.
I am grateful for tha ssistance I received in preparing this volume. I am particularly grateful for the careful critical reading given by Susan M. Hartmann, University of Missouri-St. Louis, and Kathryn Kish Sklar, University of california, Los Angeles. I would also like to acknowledge the editorial assistance of Drake Bush, Mary George, and Harriet Meltzer, and the production assistance of Lynn Edwards, Michael Farmer, and avery Hallowell, all of Harcourt Brace Jovanovich.

Crime
"This book is not for the squeamish. The naked truth about what happened to women behind prison bars." It does not really matter who they are or what they did once they are behind prison walls. For at that point they are all prisoners of a system that works impartially to pervert and destroy any woman in its power.

Women's Diaries of the Westward Journey Lillian Schlissel Softcover 1982
More than a quarter of a million Americans crossed the continental United States between 1840 and 1870, going west in one of the greatest migrations of modern times. The frontiersmen have become an integral part of our history and folklore, but the Westering experiences of American women are equally central to an accurate picture of what life was like on the frontier. Through the diaries, letters, and reminiscences of women who participated in this migration, "Women' s Diaries of the Westward Journey" gives us primary source material on the lives of these women, who kept campfires burning with buffalo chips and dried weeds, gave birth to and cared for children along primitive and dangerous roads, drove teams of oxen, picked berries, milked cows, and cooked meals in the middle of a wilderness that was a far cry from the homes they had left back east. Still (and often under the disapproving eyes of their husbands) they found time to write brave letters home or to jot a few weary lines at night into the diaries that continue to enthrall us.

Wrestling With Manhood: Boys, Bullying and battering
DVD

Wrestling with Manhood is the first educational program to pay attention to the enormous popularity of professional wrestling among male youth, addressing its relationship to real-life violence and probing the social values that sustain it as a powerful cultural force. Richly illustrating their analysis with numerous examples, Sut Jhally and Jackson Katz- the award-winning creators of Dreamworlds and Tough Guise, respectively, offer a new way to think about the enduring problem of men's violence against women and bullying in our schools. Drawing the connection between professional wrestling and the construction of contemporary masculinity, they show how so-called "entertainment" is related to homophobia, sexual assault and relationship violence. They further argue that to not engage with wrestling in a serious manner allows cynical promoters of violence and sexism an uncontested role in the process by which boys become "men." Designed to engage the wrestling fan as well as the cultural analyst, Wrestling with Manhood will provoke spirited debate about some of our most serious social problems.
