"A poignant and hilarious tour of the last frontier, the ultimate forbidden zone, The vagina monologues is a celebration of female sexuality in all its complexity and mystery. Hailed as the bible for a new generation of women, it has been performed in cities all across America and at hundreds of college campuses, and has inspired a dynamic grassroots movement - V-Day - to stop violence against women. Witty and irreverent, compassionate and wise, Eve Ensler's Obie Award-winning masterpiece gives voice to real women's deepest fantasies and fears, guaranteeing that no one who reads it will ever look at a woman's body, or think of sex, in quite the same way again. Included in this special edition are testimonials - both joyous and heartbreaking - from young women who have performed The Vagina Monologues at their colleges for V-Day, February 14, to raise money for organizations fighting to protect women"--Jacket
One bright shining moment : the forgotten summer of George McGovern( Visual )

2 editions published between 2005 and 2011 in English and held by 478 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This documentary retraces George McGovern's bold presidential campaign of 1972 - a grassroots campaign that fought for peace and justice, and positioned ideas and people first. However, what is remembered today as being the ultimate political defeat of the American Century may also have been its high watermark. The film poses this central question: what does the crushing electoral defeat of a man so well respected for his decency and intellect say about the electoral process, the American government, and more importantly, what does it say about the forces at work on the American people---then and now?

Wonder women! : the untold story of American superheroines( Visual )

4 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 349 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A nuanced critique of gender and heroism in popular culture as well as a powerful dose of Vitamin F(eminism) for the undernourished. From the birth of the 1940s comic book heroine, Wonder Woman, to the blockbusters of today, Wonder Women! looks at how popular representations of powerful women often reflect society's anxieties about strong and healthy women. Wonder Women! reveals the complicated negotiations girls and women face as they attempt to achieve confidence, strength, and agency in a society often at odds with those goals. Yet it also inspires through its evocative images, upbeat soundtrack, and richly contextualized history of American superheroines -- including the everyday wonder women and action girls in our midst. The film goes behind the scenes with Lynda Carter, Lindsay Wagner, comic writers and artists, and real-life superheroines such as Gloria Steinem, Kathleen Hanna, and others who offer an enlightening and entertaining counterpoint to the male-dominated superhero genre
Equal means equal : why the time for an equal rights amendment is now by Jessica Neuwirth( Book )

4 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 315 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"When the Equal Rights Amendment was first passed by Congress in 1972, Richard Nixon was president and All in the Family's Archie Bunker was telling his feisty wife Edith to stifle it. Over the course of the next ten years, an initial wave of enthusiasm led to ratification of the ERA by thirty-five states, just three short of the thirty-eight states needed by the 1982 deadline. Many of the arguments against the ERA that historically stood in the way of ratification have gone the way of bouffant hairdos and Bobby Riggs, and a new Coalition for the ERA was recently set up to bring the experience and wisdom of old-guard activists together with the energy and social media skills of a new-guard generation of women. In a series of short, accessible chapters looking at several key areas of sex discrimination recognized by the Supreme Court, Equal Means Equal tells the story of the legal cases that inform the need for an ERA, along with contemporary cases in which women's rights are compromised without the protection of an ERA. Covering topics ranging from pay equity and pregnancy discrimination to violence against women, Equal Means Equal makes abundantly clear that an ERA will improve the lives of real women living in America."--

Drop the ball : achieving more by doing less by Tiffany Dufu( Book )

2 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 262 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A renowned expert in the women's leadership movement, Tiffany Dufu was once like so many other driven and talented women who have been brought up to believe that to have it all, they must do it all. But after she gave birth to her first child, she struggled to accomplish everything she thought she needed to in order to succeed. Dufu began to feel that achieving her career and personal goals was an impossibility. Eventually, she discovered the solution: letting go. In Drop the Ball, Dufu recounts how she learned to reevaluate expectations, shrink her to-do list, and meaningfully engage the assistance of others--freeing the space she needed to flourish at work and to develop deeper, more meaningful relationships at home. Even though women make up half the workforce, they still represent only 18 percent of the highest-level leaders. The reasons are obvious: just as women reach middle management, they are also starting families. Mounting responsibilities at work and home leave them with no bandwidth to do what will most lead to their success. Offering new perspective on why the women's leadership movement has stalled, and packed with actionable advice, Tiffany Dufu's Drop the Ball urges women to embrace imperfection and to expect less of themselves and more from others--only then can they focus on what they truly care about, devote the necessary energy to achieving their real goals, and create the type of rich, rewarding lives we all desire."--Dust jacket

Private violence( Visual )

2 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 150 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Private violence explores a simple but deeply disturbing fact of American life: the most dangerous place for a woman in America is her own home. Every day in the U.S., at least four women are murdered by abusive partners or ex-partners. Through the eyes of two survivors -- Deanna Walters, a mother who seeks justice for the crimes committed against her at the hands of her estranged husband, and Kit Gruelle, an advocate who seeks justice for all women -- we bear witness to the complex realities of intimate partner violence). Their experiences challenge entrenched and misleading assumptions, providing a lens into a world that is largely invisible." -- Container
Moving beyond words by Gloria Steinem( Book )

13 editions published between 1994 and 2012 in 3 languages and held by 149 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Steinem's career-spanning collection of essays--each one a book in itself--re-imagine everything from the masculinization of wealth to Freudian thought and aging With cool humor and rich intellect, Gloria Steinem strips bare our social constructions of gender and race, explaining just how limiting these invented cultural identities can be. In the first of six sections, Steinem imagines how our understanding of human psychology would be different in a witty reversal: What if Freud had been a woman who inflicted biological inferiority on men (think?womb envy?)? In other essays, the author presents positive examples of people who turn stereotypes on their heads, from a female bodybuilder to Mahatma Gandhi, whose followers absorbed his wisdom that change starts at the bottom. And in some of the most moving pieces, Steinem reveals something of her own complicated history as a writer, woman, and citizen of the world

A powerful and moving treatise on the surprises of aging from an influential feminist writer and activist who thinks beyond stereotypes The older I get, the more intensely I feel about the world around me. Gloria Steinem has been an eloquent and outspoken voice for women & rsquo;s rights and equality for more than four decades. In Doing Sixty & Seventy she addresses an essential concern of people everywhere & mdash;and especially of women: the issue of aging. Whereas turning fifty, in her experience, is & ldquo;leaving a much-loved and familiar country, & rdquo; turning sixty means & ldquo;arriving at the border of a new one. & rdquo; With insight, intelligence, wit, and heartfelt honesty, she explores the landscapes of this new country and celebrates what she has called & ldquo;the greatest adventure of our lives. & rdquo; While appreciating everybody & rsquo;s experiences as different, Steinem sees these years as charged with possibilities. Dealing with stereotypes and the & ldquo;invisibility & rdquo; that often accompany a woman & rsquo;s senior years can be as liberating as it is frustrating. It frees women as well as men to embrace that & ldquo;full, glorious, alive-in-the-moment, don & rsquo;t-give-a-damn yet caring-for-everything sense of the right now. & rdquo; This ebook features an illustrated biography of Gloria Steinem including rare images and never-before-seen documents from the author & rsquo;s personal collection
