By harassment. She calls attention to women and men who persevere in challenging the resistance to equality in the services. She describes a determined hard core of right-wing conservatives and disgruntled military men who continue to use every kind of issue and allegation - quotas, reverse discrimination, lowered standards - to reverse women's progress in the military. In the end, two simple facts remain. The Armed Services need women. And, in the male culture of the
Diane : a signature life by Diane Von Furstenberg( Book )

The frank and compelling story of an extraordinary woman and her adventures in fashion, business, and life. "Most fairy tales end with the girl marrying the prince. That's where mine began," says Diane Von Furstenberg. Von Furstenberg lived the American Dream before she was thirty, building a multimillion-dollar fashion empire while raising two children and living life in the fast lane. Her wrap dress, a cultural phenomenon in the seventies, hangs in the Smithsonian Institution; her entry into the beauty business in 1979 was as serendipitous and as successful. Von Furstenberg learned her trade in the trenches, crisscrossing the country to make personal appearances at department stores, selling her dresses and cosmetics. That business had its ups and downs, as the fashionista entrepreneur's unparalleled success became the source of its own undoing and she contended with bankruptcy, the loss of her business, and finally a complete self-reinvention that took her back to the top of the industry. This revealing and contemplative memoir works to make sense of the contradictions of the author's life: glamour vs. hard work, European vs. American, daughter of a Holocaust survivor vs. wife of an Austro-Italian prince, mother vs. entrepreneur, lover vs. tycoon. She emerges wiser, stronger, and ever more determined never to sacrifice her passion for life
On the road with Francis of Assisi : a timeless journey through Umbria and Tuscany, and beyond by Linda Bird Francke( Book )

3 editions published between 2005 and 2006 in English and held by 452 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A travelogue of parallel journeys: that of Francis of Assisi on his way to sainthood in the thirteenth century, and that of author Francke, who followed his path through the beauty of central and coastal Italy, and on to Egypt. She and her husband, Harvey Loomis, used medieval texts as their guidebooks. Theirs was not a spiritual journey but one based on admiration for a man whose legend continues to inspire and fascinate millions around the world. From Assisi--a small Umbrian town now second only to Rome as an Italian pilgrimage destination--Saint Francis crisscrossed Italy for twenty years. So too does the author travel through the "green heart" of Italy to hill towns and cities and to the many Franciscan sanctuaries. Along the way, Francke draws us into the splendid beauty of the landscape that inspired the saint's love for nature and regard for all living things.--From publisher description
