Bearing witness : sexual harassment and beyond--everywoman's story by Celia Morris( Book )

11 editions published between 1994 and 1999 in English and held by 1,034 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

When Anita Hill came forward to testify against Clarence Thomas in 1991, she told a story that was too familiar, too devastating - and at last too public - to ignore. Now, in a compelling collage of interviews and commentary, Celia Morris continues the fight the Hill/Thomas hearings began - capturing the outrage of women subjected to sexual harassment and abuse and calling for fundamental change. Bearing Witness is an urgent examination of sexual intimidation in its myriad forms - a book that breaks the silence that generations of women have been forced to keep. From factory lines to Capitol Hill, from inner cities to prestigious universities and the upper echelons of media, law, and medicine, Morris brings to life the personal stories - and solutions - of women who suffer from our complacency toward men's outrageous behavior. Here are the lewd remarks, the unwanted propositions, the wandering hands, and always - always - the specter of sexual violence that threatens women daily. Yet here, too, we discover women's newfound unity and their determination to fight back. Both a collection of stories and a road map of protest, Bearing Witness also explores the ways women have been crippled by ancient fears of female sexuality and examines the cultural heritage that has led to an imbalance of power between men and women. But Morris shows how women are learning to change the questions from "What did she do to deserve it?" and "Why did she stay?" to "Why did he do it?" and "Why did the people around him allow him to do it?" and "What can we do to change all that?" Arguing that to win true equality - both at work and at home - women must learn to use the collective "we," Morris also invites sympathetic men to join in a cause that will benefit them equally. Timely, impassioned, and frank, Bearing Witness spotlights an urgent national problem and issues a call to organize for justice
Fanny Wright : rebel in America by Celia Morris( Book )

16 editions published between 1984 and 1992 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,033 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Frances Wright dared to take Thomas Jefferson seriously when he wrote, ' All men are created equal, ' and to assume that 'men' meant 'women' as well. Born in Scotland in 1795, she came to the United States in 1818, and spent half her adult life here, she died in Ohio in 1852, ending a lifetime devoted to promoting equality among the races and the sexes. The Marquis de Lafayette called her his adored Fanny and paid court so openly that he scandalized even his own family. The first woman to act publicly to oppose slavery. The pampered daughter of a highly stratified class society, she cast her lot with the working people, risking her health, her fortune, and her good name to realize the promise of the Declaration of Independence. With a boldness rare in women of her day, she attacked in print and in lecture halls throughout the country an economic system that allowed not only black slavery in the South but what she called wage slavery in the North. With the exception perhaps of Walt Whitman, she wrote more powerfully of sexual experience than any other American the nineteenth century

"In Finding Celia's Place, Morris unflinchingly weighs her own experiences and the unconventional lives of several close college friends and reflects on the tangled relationshipps of women and men in their generation.
