Memoirs of an ex-prom queen; a novel by Alix Kates Shulman( Book )

39 editions published between 1969 and 2012 in 4 languages and held by 1,363 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A sardonic portrayal of one white, middle-class, Midwestern girl's coming-of-age, the novel takes a wry and prescient look at a range of experiences treated at the time as taboo but which were ultimately accepted as matters of major political significance: sexual harassment, job discrimination, the sexual double standard, rape, abortion restrictions, the double binds of marriage and motherhood, and the frantic quest for beauty. The book went on to sell more than a million copies and is regarded today as a classic, one of the first and best pieces of fiction born of the women's liberation movement.

Robin catches a bus from her home in Maine to New York City to escape her tyrannical father. With no money and little hope of finding a decent job, the sixteen-year-old girl is easy prey for a hard-luck pimp named Prince. He quickly gains Robin's trust and introduces her to the seedy underbelly of the city, a world of sex, drugs, and lies in which she must fight to survive. A homeless woman named Owl, who was once beautiful and bold, befriends Robin as they both struggle to take control of their lives. On the Stroll is a moving, gritty picture of the people who find themselves on society's margins and a heartrending look at the ultimate costs of homelessness and prostitution

Red Emma speaks : an Emma Goldman reader by Emma Goldman( Book )

18 editions published between 1972 and 2011 in English and Undetermined and held by 559 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Product Description: Unlike any other collection of Goldman's work, RED EMMA SPEAKS presents in a single, handy volume the full sweep of her opinions and personality. In addition to nine essays from Goldman's own 1910 collection ANARCHISM AND OTHER ESSAYS, three dramatic sections from her 1931 autobiography LIVING MY LIFE, and the Afterword to her MY DISILLUSIONMENT IN RUSSIA (which the collapse of the Soviet Union has revealed as prescient), this book contains sixteen more pieces covering a great range of subjects, assembled here for the first time to offer a rich composite of Goldman's life and thought. RED EMMA SPEAKS on: anarchism, sex, prostitution, marriage, jealousy, prisons, religion, schools, violence, war, communism, and much more. The first edition of RED EMMA SPEAKS (1972), with a biographical sketch, introduced Goldman to a new generation. The second edition (1985), enlarged to serve an exploding interest in women's studies, added three more essays plus an assessment of Goldman's feminism by Alix Kates Shulman. The present, third edition, containing a new Foreword by Shulman and more accessible source listings, has been revised to situate the works more precisely in light of a burgeoning Goldman scholarship

Feminist : Stories from Women's Liberation( Visual )

2 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 116 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Structured as a personal journey of rediscovery by filmmaker Jennifer Lee, this documentary brings the momentous first decade of second wave feminism vividly to life. Its trajectory starts with the earliest stirrings in 1963 and ends with the movements full blossoming in 1970--from the Presidential Commissions report on widespread discrimination against women and publication of Betty Friedan's Feminine Mystique up through radical feminists' takeover of the Statue of Liberty and Friedan's calls for a womens strike for equality. A wealth of period footage captures landmark events and the pivotal roles of the National Organization for Women (NOW), the Equal Employment Opportunities Commission (EEOC), the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee (SNCC), Redstockings, and other organizations. Thirty-five diverse interviewees, including rank-and-file activists along with well-known feminists Betty Friedan, Frances M. Beale, Gloria Steinem, Robin Morgan, Ti-Grace Atkinson, and others, share memories of the period as well as issues and challenges that still resonate today. A great introduction to Womens Studies and critical viewing for historians and academics interested in feminism, activism and the Women's Movement." -- Publisher's description
