Tailspin : women at war in the wake of Tailhook by Jean Zimmerman( Book )

3 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 906 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Tailhook scandal will doubtless go down in history as the most sordid and divisive episode in the history of the U.S. Navy, rocking it to the highest levels. In this first full-length chronicle of the scandal and its aftermath, Jean Zimmerman explores the link between the events of that hot, sloppy night in Las Vegas and the legal ban on women in combat. That link forms the substance of this bracing narrative as it portrays one of the most traditional organizations in the world, the U.S. Navy, on the brink of historic change. The reverberations of the Tailhook affair, with their profound implications for the role of women, will ultimately be remembered as changing the face of war. The saga of an institution and the scandal that forever changed it, TAILSPIN is a defining work of military history and feminist scholarship

Breaking with tradition : women and work, the new facts of life by Felice N Schwartz( Book )

6 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 743 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Felice Schwartz explains why this is not only detrimental to women and men, their marriages, and their children, but why it is bad for business. She backs up her views with hard dollars and cents figures along with information gathered during Catalyst's many years of working in the field with major corporations. Most of all, she offers business leaders a battery of solutions: ways to manage maternity, the institutionalization of flexible work arrangements, a new corporate structure to replace the outmoded pyramid, and much more." "Breaking with Tradition dares to put the hidden agendas and issues "on the table" and by doing so, makes an eloquent argument for a total metamorphosis of the corporate way of life. The bottom line, says Schwartz, is that family issues are work issues; and all problems are remedial. Clear-sighted, provocative, and ultimately optimistic, this book will undoubtably stimulate discussion and debate and provide the essential groundwork for building a true partnership between women and their employers, between women and their families, and among women themselves."--Jacket
Made from scratch : reclaiming the pleasures of the American hearth by Jean Zimmerman( Book )

4 editions published between 2003 and 2014 in English and held by 451 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Made from Scratch tells the story of the unsung heroines of the hearth, investigating the history of female domesticity and charting its cultural changes over centuries. Zimmerman traces the lives of her own family's homemakers - from her tiny but indomitable grandmother, who managed a farm, strangled chickens with her bare hands, and sewed all the family clothing, to her mother, who rejected her country upbringing yet kept a fastidious suburban home where the gender divide stayed firmly in place, to her own experiences as a wife and mother weaned on the Women's Movement of the 1970s, with its emphatic view that housework was a dirty word and that the domestic sphere was to be fled rather than cherished. In this book Zimmerman questions the unexamined trade-off we have made in a shockingly brief time span, as we've "progressed" from home-raised chickens to frozen TV dinners to McNuggets from the food court at the mall. What is lost when we no longer engage, as individuals and as a community, in the ancient rituals of food, craft, and shelter?"--Jacket
