Psychology of women : a handbook of issues and theories by Florence Denmark( Book )

29 editions published between 1992 and 2017 in English and held by 2,656 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book is a narrative history of the 30-year struggle to outlaw slavery, starting with the founding of the American Anti-Slavery Society in 1834 and extending until the abolition of slavery in the United States at the end of the Civil War." "The core of the book consists of two sections. The first documents the 20-year political struggle to restrict slavery through a succession of anti-extensionist parties, starting in 1840 with the founding of the Liberty Party, extending through the Free Soil Party (1848-54), and ending with Abraham Lincoln being elected president as a Republican on the same basic platform as the Liberty Party in 1844. The second section covers the struggle by abolitionists to use the outbreak of the Civil War as a chance to rid the country of slavery using the executive wartime powers of the presidency."--Jacket

Women and aging : an international, intersectional power perspective by Varda Mühlbauer( )

11 editions published between 2014 and 2015 in English and held by 412 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

These are paradoxical times to be an older woman . As individual older women take the stage as role models in the arts and the public sphere, female elders as a group are marginalized as dependent, declining, and unimportant. Women and Aging surveys the evolving sociopolitical landscape in an era still struggling with gender and age discrimination. This insightful volume recasts familiar concepts such as social roles, appearance, health, sexuality, and transition through the related lenses of empowerment/restraint and quality of life/well-being for a deeper understanding of the disparities that exist both with men and within their own gender. Two especially relevant questions emerge from this framework: how women over 60 are contributing to the current climate of societal change, and how these positive developments can improve the lives of older women as a whole. Featured topics analyze the wider implications of older women's experiences as family members, sensual and sexual beings, dr

Violence and exploitation against women and girls( Book )

15 editions published between 2006 and 2007 in English and held by 320 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Drawing upon the expertise of a cadre of scholars and practitioners, this book has four parts: (1) conceptualizing violence and exploitation against females, (2) violence against girls and female adolescents, (3) violence against women, and (4) cultural and international perspectives on violence against women. Contributors place violence against women and girls within a variety of cultural and religious perspectives and also present theories of violence, the role of stereotyping, and the effect of violence in the larger community. The recent emergence of cyber violence, particularly against adolescents, is addressed, and several violence prevention programs are described. Violence against elderly women, disabled women, and pregnant women are addressed, as are the public health issues related to violence against women. The final section of the book expands the cultural perspective through chapters on domestic violence in Latin America, South Asia, Israel, and among ethnic enclaves within the United States. A report on female genital mutilation is included. The role of the United Nations and non-governmental organizations in preventing violence against women globally concludes the volume."--Publisher's website

The essential handbook of women's sexuality( )

2 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 222 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Sexual desire, expression, and satisfaction are important to women personally. But beyond that, women's sexualities are central to the politics and economies of societies worldwide, some of which go to great lengths to control, regulate, and restrict women's bodies, sexual knowledge, and sexual expression. Clearly a better understanding of this compelling and complex subject is in order. The multifaceted field of women's sexuality has expanded as a field of inquiry over the last 25 years to encompass a wide range of new perspectives, theories, topics, findings, and controversies. The chapters in this work review and question the utility of standard sexuality frameworks, addressing purely biological models, heteronormative definitions of sexuality, and others; and provide new insights and approaches to understanding women's sexuality. The intersectional and contextual nature of women's sexuality and how it is inextricably connected to women's relational, social, economic, and cultural contexts is highlighted. The Essential Handbook of Women's Sexuality includes in-depth coverage of a wide range of women's sexuality topics, including sexual desire and satisfaction; sexuality in relationships; development across the lifespan; sexuality concerns in diverse countries; pornography; lesbian, bisexual, and transgender women; women from diverse backgrounds; health and sexuality; reconceptualizations of women's sexual problems; trauma, rape, and intimate partner violence; and mental health and therapy. These volumes can serve as a resource for students, researchers, and anyone seeking a greater understanding of women's sexuality. -- from back cover
Women and leadership by Florence Denmark( )

9 editions published between 2018 and 2019 in English and Undetermined and held by 200 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This empowering volume presents current empirical findings and rich personal insights into the evolving challenges women face in attaining—and thriving in—leadership positions. Contributors add new voices to emerging and familiar topics, including leadership styles and traits, growth and learning experiences within career paths, mentoring and entrepreneurial aspects of leadership, and workplace and societal resistance to women in roles of power. Representative first-person accounts shed significant light on real-world double standards and double binds (including the unique obstacles faced by minority women), why the glass ceiling still exists, and steps still needed to dismantle it. Coverage also addresses related legal issues, such as the ongoing fight against pay inequities and conflicts between the DeVos rules and Title IX regulations in the schools
