The female body and the law by Zillah R Eisenstein( Book )

11 editions published in 1988 in English and held by 1,003 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In dit boek over sekse verschillen stelt Eisenstein dat de ongelijkheid tussen de sekse in stand wordt gehouden door zowel het recht, die de man als standaard neemt bij wetgeving die de formele gelijkheid tussen mannen en vrouwen wil regelen, als door het biologische verschil tussen man en vrouw, waardoor vrouwen beperkt worden tot voortplanting en moederschap. Aan de hand van thema's als positieve actie, abortus en pornografie laat ze zien dat het recht beperkend werkt. Zonder terug te vallen in traditionele ideen stelt ze het 'zwangere lichaam' met de gevolgen daarvan, centraal in de discussie over gelijke behandeling

The color of gender : reimaging democracy by Zillah R Eisenstein( Book )

10 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 597 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this provocative volume, Zillah Eisenstein uncovers the hidden sexual and racial politics of the past decade. Beginning where she left off in her award-winning book The Female Body and the Law, Eisenstein takes the reader on a feminist-inspired road trip, traveling from the thicket of recent abortion decisions to the revolutions of 1989 to the murky chambers of the Anita Hill/Clarence Thomas hearings. Along the way, she enunciates a wholly original conception of individual privacy and sexual rights. Eisenstein brings a range of topics to her discussion: the L.A. riots, crack babies, Murphy Brown, political correctness, the 1992 presidential election, the Gulf War. She seeks to redirect our thinking about democracy away from universal conceptions that mask racial and gender oppression to the specific realities of women and people of color. A respect for multiple differences--as represented in the needs of women of color and their bodies--is, she says, essential to inclusive universal rights. Reproductive freedoms and sexual equality, not abstract notions of civil liberties, provide the wellsprings of a meaningful democratic life. Using this perspective to evaluate the Eastern European revolutions of 1989, Eisenstein finds that the separation between their ideals and the reality of the market system illustrates the failings of democratic theory, especially for women

Exploring the politics of hate on both global and local levels, Eisenstein tracks developments such as racialized ethnic and gender conflict, the new male democracies of eastern Europe an
Global obscenities : patriarchy, capitalism, and the lure of cyberfantasy by Zillah R Eisenstein( Book )

11 editions published in 1998 in English and Undetermined and held by 423 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The New York Times devotes the cover of its magazine to America's declining interest in politics and its obsession with money, finance, and the markets. Bill Gates builds a 50 million mansion while food pantries and homeless shelters overflow with the desperate. The explosive expansion of media and cyber conglomerates creates dreamworlds while the ecology of our actual world is jeopardized. Public space and public democracy withers, as is evidenced by the fact that the closest facsimile of a town square is the local Barnes and Noble. New geographies of power are defined by sex scandals

14 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 175 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this book Zillah Eisenstein weighs up the new anti-imperial possibilities created by the 2008 election of Barack Obama.

Feminism and war : confronting US imperialism by Judy Rohrer( Book )

1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Women across the globe are being dramatically affected by war as currently waged by the USA. But there has been little public space for dialogue about the complex relationship between feminism, women, and war. The editors of Feminism and War have brought together a diverse set of leading theorists and activists who examine the questions raised by ongoing American military initiatives, such as: a) What are the implications of an imperial nation/state laying claim to women's liberation? b) What is the relation between this claim and resulting American foreign policy and military action? c) Did American intervention and invasion in fact result in liberation for women in Afghanistan and Iraq? d) What multiple concepts are embedded in the phrase "women¹s liberation"? e) How are these connected to the specifics of religion, culture, history, economics, and nation within current conflicts? f) What is the relation between the lives of Afghan and Iraqi women before and after invasion, and that of women living in the US? g) How do women who define themselves as feminists resist or acquiesce to this nation/state claim in current theory and organizing? Feminism and War reveals and critically analyzes the complicated ways in which America uses gender, race, class, nationalism, imperialism to justify, legitimate, and continue war. Each chapter builds on the next to develop an anti-racist, feminist politics that places imperialist power, and forms of resistance to it, central to its comprehensive analysis."--Publisher description

Eisenstein said of her collection, "I teach with all, and from dispersed sites and kinds of info - so I am sure that the materials might seem disjointed in a sense, but they are not. (Actually I teach to create a kind of disjointedness, and from this uncomfortable place is where thinking happens)." The collection arrived to the Pembroke Center Archives in two batches and as such, has been processed in two sets. Subgroup I: First Accession, consists of Series I - III. It was processed by Elizabeth Mather in approxiately 2011. Subgroup II: Second Accession, consists of Series IV-VII and was processed by Crystal Johnson in 2017.
