Women writing women : the Frontiers reader by Karen Weathermon( )

6 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 1,415 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

By merging scholarly writing with personal life stories, Women Writing Women creates a new setting for communicating the unique experiences of women. The interdisciplinary nature of this volume, incorporating authors' ideas on identity, gender, and social realities, illuminates a rich diversity of experiences. To give voice to the different realities women live in and write from, the editors have divided the anthology into four sections: writing about the self; writing about the family and other intimate relationships; writing about the women they study; and writing about women from sources such as diaries and letters. Within this framework women touch on subjects such as ethnicity, sexuality, motherhood, and feminist versus traditional values. The result is a collection of essays that pays tribute to women's complex realities and to their critical creativity in writing about those realities
Women's oral history : the Frontiers reader( Book )

5 editions published between 2002 and 2003 in English and held by 246 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Women's Oral History includes nineteen essays, each addressing the particularity of women's lives and experience. The collection provides both "how to" interview guides and examples of current research in sections covering basic methodology and rationale; the myriad uses of women's oral history; and discoveries and insights gained from oral history applications. The essays raise thought-provoking questions, glean original insights about the lives of women and the practice of history, and call for women to write and record their own histories."-- Back cover
Gender on the borderlands : the Frontiers reader( Book )

2 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Gender on the Borderlands captures the intense, complex, and gendered experience of those living along the barbwire borderlands of Mexico and the United States. Through scholarship, testimonials, oral histories, songs, poetry, and art, the contributors reclaim the borderlands from the distortions and violence of "official" history and continue the recovery of a gendered Chicana/ Chicano history begun by Gloria Anzaldua in Borderlands/La Frontera more than twenty years ago."
