Working women don't have wives : professional success in the 1990s by T. E Apter( Book )

10 editions published between 1993 and 1995 in English and held by 1,072 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Working hours and decreasing job security have presented today's working women with a new set of conflicts.

Sister knot : why we fight, why we're jealous, and why we'll love each other no matter what by T. E Apter( Book )

8 editions published between 2007 and 2008 in English and held by 1,035 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

An exploration of the intricacy, friction, and love in the bonds between sisters. Relationships between women are often freighted with a rocky mix of emotions--devotion and disregard, affection and loathing, admiration and envy--leading to anguish and confusion on the playground, in the home, and in the boardroom. A woman's experience negotiating her layered feelings toward a sister shapes her psychology as forcefully as do her relationships with her parents. By exploring sisterhoods, Terri Apter reveals their key role in understanding all relationships among women. In a series of interviews, Apter considers the many aspects of the sister relationship from birth through adulthood. The need to fight to differentiate oneself from a sister, as well as the protectiveness one feels for that same person, is explained by reference to extensive psychological and biological evidence.--From publisher description

Best friends : the pleasures and perils of girls' and women's friendships by T. E Apter( Book )

4 editions published between 1998 and 2010 in English and held by 588 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Best Friends provides the missing link to understanding and recognizing the impact of some of the most important relationships in girls' and women's lives. Every woman remembers the sting of betrayal of a girlfriend, and every parent of a daughter has seen her come home from school in tears because a girl she thought was her best friend suddenly and inexplicably became her enemy. While boys hash out differences with fists and kicks, girls' societies are marked by secrets and whispers and shifting affection. The lessons learned as an adolescent girl are often carried into adulthood, making women fear confrontation--especially with other women. But the intensity of the struggles reflects the support and healing to be found within these friendships. Girls find themselves in the mirror of other girls, hence the power each has to influence the other. Ruthellen Josselson and Terri Apter's many years of working with hundreds of girls and women have given them insight into the emotionally important relationships that are integral to a girl's self-image. Best Friends explores the bonds of friendship between girls and between women and the sorrows and joys they experience together, from early adolescence and throughout their lives.
