"At the age of 85, U.S. Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg has developed a breathtaking legal legacy while becoming an unexpected pop culture icon. But without a definitive Ginsburg biography, the unique personal journey of this diminutive, quiet warrior's rise to the nation's highest court has been largely unknown, even to some of her biggest fans - until now. RBG is a revelatory documentary exploring Ginsburg 's exceptional life and career from Betsy West and Julie Cohen"--Alexander Street website

"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.

Equal means equal : why the time for an equal rights amendment is now by Jessica Neuwirth( )

5 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 992 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."--

" ... Once the poster girl for doing it all, after she had her first child, Tiffany Dufu struggled to accomplish everything she thought she needed to in order to succeed. Like so many driven and talented women who have been brought up to believe that to have it all, they must do it all, 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 ..."--

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

12 editions published between 2012 and 2016 in English and held by 542 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
Doonesbury dossier : the Reagan years by G. B Trudeau( Book )

5 editions published between 1980 and 1984 in English and held by 530 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Three years of Doonesbury are packed into this Trudeau tour de force, his fourth, and perhaps most timely, major anthology. Those three years coincide precisely with the election campaign, inauguration, and first years in office of the First Cowboy. At the core of this book are the foibles and follies of life under the Reagan Administration, portrayed with the inimitable Trudeau wit and style in more than 500 daily strips and 80 full-color Sunday pages. This rich collection is Trudeau at his trenchant best, and makes the election-year return to syndication of one of America's most popular and clearly its most political comic strips." -- Back cover
Courage is contagious : and other reasons to be grateful for Michelle Obama by Nicholas Haramis( Book )

1 edition published in 2017 in English and held by 519 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A collection of essays celebrating the influential former first lady, by an array of acclaimed contributors and with a foreword by Lena Dunham. Michelle Obama's legacy transcends categorization. Mrs. Obama was not only our first black first lady; she was President Obama's equal partner in marriage and parenthood and a tireless advocate for women's rights, education, healthy eating, and exercise. Her genre-busting personal style encouraged others to speak, to engage, even to dress as they wished. In an extension of his popular T, the New York Times Style Magazine feature, Nick Haramis has assembled nineteen essays from prizewinning writers, Hollywood stars, and political leaders--all of whom have been moved and influenced by Mrs. Obama's extraordinary example of grace in power. Here are original testimonials from Gloria Steinem, Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, Alice Waters, and Charlamagne the God, among others. Presidential biographer Jon Meacham supplies historical perspective. Actress Tracee Ellis Ross suggests that Mrs. Obama 'provided an antidote to all the false representations of black women that have inundated us for centuries.' Anna Wintour and designer Jason Wu celebrate the former first lady's impact as an international fashion icon. Two ninth-grade girls--one in training to be a boxer--talk about how Mrs. Obama has emboldened them to be themselves. Here are some of the many facets of Michelle Obama as she continues to inspire us, a stirring reminder that the best of America once lived in the White House, embodied in one authentic, inclusive, and courageous woman.--Jacket flap

Wonder Woman by William Moulton Marston( Book )

4 editions published in 1972 in English and held by 455 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Wisdom, strength and love were the Amazonian qualities given to Wonder Woman by her creator, Charles Moulton, when he began the comic strip in 1941. For six productive years, his stories seduced and enchanted children of all ages. Now in this collection of the best strips from the 1940s, the Golden Age of Comics, Wonder Woman lives again. And, as Gloria Steinem points out, she is a symbol for the feminist movement, an example of sisterhood, self-reliance and self-respect for all women to follow. Here then is the Amazonian Princess battling the forces of evil, upholding truth and justice, performing incredible feats of skill and daring. Wielding her magic golden lasso, bouncing bullets off her steel bracelets, Wonder Woman flashes through these pages, a foe to violence, war and hatred
My life on the road by Gloria Steinem( )

28 editions published between 2005 and 2020 in 4 languages and held by 350 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Gloria Steinem had an itinerant childhood. Every fall, her father would pack the family into the car and they would drive across the country, in search of their next adventure. The seeds were planted: Steinem would spend much of her life on the road, as a journalist, organizer, activist, and speaker. In vivid stories that span an entire career, Steinem writes about her time on the campaign trail, from Bobby Kennedy to Hillary Clinton; her early exposure to social activism in India; organizing ground-up movements in America; the taxi drivers who were ""vectors of modern myths"" and the airline
One bright shining moment : the forgotten summer of George McGovern( Visual )

4 editions published between 2005 and 2011 in English and held by 339 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?

Doing sixty & seventy by Gloria Steinem( )

4 editions published between 2006 and 2014 in English and held by 282 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A powerful and moving treatise on the surprises of aging from an influential feminist writer and activist who thinks beyond stereotypesThe older I get, the more intensely I feel about the world around me. Gloria Steinem has been an eloquent and outspoken voice for women's rights and equality for more than four decades. In Doing Sixty & Seventy she addresses an essential concern of people everywhere-and especially of women: the issue of aging. Whereas turning fifty, in her experience, is "leaving a much-loved and familiar country," turning sixty means "arriving at the border of a new one." With insight, intelligence, wit, and heartfelt honesty, she explores the landscapes of this new country and celebrates what she has called "the greatest adventure of our lives."While appreciating everybody's experiences as different, Steinem sees these years as charged with possibilities. Dealing with stereotypes and the "invisibility" that often accompany a woman's senior years can be as liberating as it is frustrating. It frees women as well as men to embrace that "full, glorious, alive-in-the-moment, don't-give-a-damn yet caring-for-everything sense of the right now."This ebook features an illustrated biography of Gloria Steinem including rare images and never-before-seen documents from the author's personal collection
