Singled out : how two million women survived without men after the First World War by Virginia Nicholson( Book )

25 editions published between 2007 and 2008 in English and Undetermined and held by 918 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The First World War deprived Britain of three quarters of a million soldiers, leaving as many more incapacitated. In 1919 a generation of women who unquestioningly believed marriage to be their birthright discovered that here were, quite simply, not enough men to go round. They became known as 'the Surplus Women'." "Many of us remember them: they wee our teachers, our maiden aunts, women who seemed to have lost out life's feast. This book tells their stories: it tells of the student weeping for a lost world as the Armistice bells pealed ... the socialite who dedicated her life to resurrecting the past after her soldier love was killed ... the Bradford mill girl whose campaign to better the lot of the 'War spinsters' was to make her a public figure ... and of many other who reinvented themselves." "Tracing their fates, Virginia Nicholson shows how the single woman of the inter-War decades had to stop depending on a man for her income, her identity and her happiness. Some just endured; others challenged the conventions, fought the system, found fulfilment. Singled Out pays homage to a remarkable generation of women. They were changed by war; in their turn they helped change society. These pages offer some of their solutions, and also some of their consolations."--Jacket

Un chien Andalou (1928) by Luis Buñuel( Visual )

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

Un chien andalou consists of bizarre and surreal images which may or may not mean anything. A woman's eye is slit open, a man pokes at a severed hand in the street with his cane. A man drags two grand pianos containing dead and rotting donkeys and live preists, a man's hand has a hole in the palm from which ants emerge. The hearts of age is surreal short of a street magician. The imaginative camera angles and special effects hint at the images. In Ballet Mechanique the director weaves images of geometric shapes and humans into a symbolic Freudian dance
