Changing history : women, power, and politics by Geraldine Ferraro( Book )

5 editions published between 1993 and 1998 in English and held by 483 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Geraldine A. Ferraro served three terms as Democratic Congresswoman from the 9th district from 1978-1984. She was the Democratic Party candidate for Vice President in 1984, the first woman to be nominated to that post by a major party. Ferraro is on record here, with her view of America and how to make it better. In this book, she recalls her childhood as daughter of a single working mother, and her struggle through law school in the 1950s. Ferraro is definitive and persuasive in her stand on reproductive freedom and the rights and powers women should have. She speaks against bigotry and about her own struggles as a victim of prejudice, both as an Italian and as a woman. "Gerry Ferraro was a worthy pioneer. and she continues to be a leader for women, and for men, who are devoting their lives to making America a better place. In 1984, she endured a bruising campaign with grace and dignity, with wit and good humor and with a tremendous amount of spunk. She endured another tough campaign for the U.S. Senate last year. Gerry Ferraro, win or lose, continues to be involved in the urgent issues of our time. She continues to speak out," says Texas Governor Ann W. Richards in her introduction. Included here are Ferraro's nomination speech and her 1992 speech on the national health care crisis and some solutions to the problems. She talks about the changing profile of the American family, with some frightening statistics on latchkey children and other day care problems.--Adapted from dust jacket

1 edition published in 1998 in English and held by 23 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Running mate: Geraldine Ferraro's candidacy for Vice President in the 1984 presidential election drew fascinating gender-based commentary from editorial cartoonists. The subject of the first woman candidate on a major party ticket was irresistible. The cartoonists' commentary on Ferraro's candidacy took a variety of forms--some predictable, such as relying on images of aprons and rolling pins and swapped gender identity, and others with a surprising level of sexual innuendo. The film features interviews with Ferraro herself and with three political cartoonists
