The word of a woman : feminist dispatches 1968-1992 by Robin Morgan( Book )

15 editions published between 1992 and 1994 in English and held by 845 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"These two decades (almost a quarter-century, in fact) of essays are a personal window into the birth, truths, and changes of the Women's Movement, by one who co-founded this feminist wave and who has been there - nationally and internationally - for it all. From the first Miss America Pageant protest in 1968 to the "divorce" from the New Left, from the first fights for abortion rights to the burgeoning of a global feminist consciousness and actions, Robin Morgan raised, embraced, and recorded issues from housewives' rage to racism, through women's love for women to global peace, neocolonialism, and the environment. Here is her voice in its full range: alternately journalistic, humorous, intensely personal, meditative, theoretical, and analytical, but always impassioned - with an obsession for human freedom and for the power of language."--Publisher's description
The anatomy of freedom : feminism, physics, and global politics by Robin Morgan( Book )

24 editions published between 1982 and 2014 in English and Spanish and held by 842 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The classic of feminist vision by one of its greatest writers, with a new preface by the author With the advent of Einstein's Theory of Relativity, physics and our world changed forever. In The Anatomy of Freedom, Robin Morgan shows us how the empowerment of women--half of humanity--will have the same transformative power for society that e=mc2 had for the physical world. This is not simply another feminist treatise. Morgan looks beyond the women's movement as a crucial struggle for equal rights; she sees this process as the fundamental motor for freeing both women and men, and as a necessity for the survival of sentient life and of the planet itself. She explains and demystifies theoretical physics in accessible terms and, astonishingly, uses it as a prism through which to view the equation of relationships and gender, while going deep into the subconscious and plumbing the roots of passion. At the same time, she makes vital connections between these internal realities and global issues of the environment, economics, and family. There has perhaps never been a book more daring. The Anatomy of Freedom shows a master at her peak

Monster; poems by Robin Morgan( Book )

19 editions published between 1972 and 2014 in English and Undetermined and held by 613 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Robin Morgan's first book of poems made its own history. Thirty thousand hardcover copies selling in the first six months alone is unheard of for any book of poems, much less for a first book by a young poet. What no one, including Morgan and her publishers, anticipated was the size and hunger of the new female readership. Poets are accustomed to audiences of twenty loyal souls, but readings drew hundreds of people; on three occasions Morgan give readings for packed auditoriums that seated a thousand or more. The title poem, "Monster," was quickly termed ""The anthem of the Women's Movement, "" and lines from it showed up on buttons, bumper stickers, t-shirts, posters, and graffitti

Lady of the beasts : poems by Robin Morgan( Book )

9 editions published between 1976 and 2015 in English and held by 568 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Robin Morgan & rsquo;s second collection of poems is a rich tapestry of female experience, both literal and mythic Daughter, wife, mother, lover, artist, and even priestess are all here in shorter lyrics that cluster around four subjects: blood ties, activism and art, love between women, and archetypes. But Morgan surpasses the political grief and rage she delineated in Monster, her acclaimed first book of poems & mdash;especially in the four major metaphysical poems here: & ldquo;The City of God, & rdquo; balancing grace and despair; & ldquo;Easter Island, & rdquo; on the ironies of transcendence in embattled love; & ldquo;The Network of the Imaginary Mother, & rdquo; which became a virtual anthem of the women & rsquo;s movement; and & ldquo;Voices from Six Tapestries, & rdquo; inspired by the famous Lady and theUnicorn weavings that hang in the Mus & eacute;e de Cluny in Paris. Themes of familial love and hurt, mortality, survival, and transformation inform the poems collected here as the author weaves a wise and powerful self into being. Lady of the Beasts is Robin Morgan at her most lyrical yet

The demon lover : the roots of terrorism by Robin Morgan( Book )

14 editions published between 2001 and 2014 in English and held by 379 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book on the psychological and political roots of terrorism is updated with the author's new introduction covering the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks on the US. In a new afterword, "Letters from Ground Zero," she offers her eyewitness account of the physical and emotional devastation caused by the assault on New York's World Trade Center and the global struggle in its aftermath. First published in 1989, this book is now more timely than ever: a personal journey as well as a landmark work of investigative journalism. Traveling to the Middle East refugee camps, she gathered the first interviews with Palestinian women about their lives as women, and re-encountered the core connection between patriarchal societies and the inevitability of terrorism. The final chapter sets forth a compelling vision of hope for the future

Death benefits by Robin Morgan( )

2 editions published between 1981 and 2015 in English and held by 124 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Robin Morgan's lyrical gifts are again on display in this limited edition of four of her most celebrated poems. Prostituted women, pimps, Alice B. Toklas, and Bertha Mason--Edward Rochester's mad first wife in Jane Eyre--all make appearances in a poem titled Battery--a word that, in Morgan's hands, has surprising meanings. Affirmation underscores the perfect Shakespearian sonnet, Birthright, as it counsels a defiant gaze at life and death. The life of a flower and the process it undergoes to blossom is the subject of Peony with an utterly fresh metaphor that widens to embrace the planet. And the title poem, with its witty play on words, rips through denial in all its forms to find hard but bracing truths
Feminist : Stories from Women's Liberation( Visual )

3 editions published between 2013 and 2016 in English and held by 118 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

Going too far : the personal chronicle of a feminist by Robin Morgan( Book )

14 editions published between 1977 and 2014 in English and Undetermined and held by 19 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The personal papers of one of feminism's most passionate leaders, with a new preface by the author As an activist for social justice, Robin Morgan has acquired a reputation for strong convictions and a life-affirming way of expressing them through writing. Nowhere is this more evident than in Going Too Far, which takes us behind the scenes in Morgan's life and in the women's movement until 1977. We watch the development of an organizer who is a complex thinker while Morgan evolves as a mother, leader, writer, and activist. Morgan's keen eye is trained on all aspects of modern feminism, and this is reflected in the juxtaposition of the journal entries and letters of her personal life with the essays and polemics that shape her public persona. Her opinions on marriage, love, religion, pornography, and art are as utterly fresh and timely today as they were decades ago. Her growing wisdom and depth of perception are apparent in the book's progression, and her last chapters, focused on what she terms the?metaphysics of feminism,? will change a reader's world view for the better--and forever
