  • View the Author's website! Seely, the youngest elected president of California's chapter of the National Organization for Women, combines her own story of third-wave feminism with an overview of the feminist movement and words to guide others. Third-wave feminists are aware of both the victories won by earlier feminists and the problems of class, race, sexual orientation, and internationalism that must still be overcome. This book weaves a deep respect for the foremothers with commonsense discussion of current obstacles and suggestions for direct action, resulting in a work that reminds us of what too many activists forget-every progressive movement has a long history, few organizing tricks are new, and problems must be understood before they can be solved. Seely includes booklists, time lines, web sites, and how-to tips that will help readers over the bridge from her insights to real world activism. For midsize to larger public libraries, academic libraries, and all feminist collections. —Library Journal "Want to know what it means to be a feminist of the third wave? Megan Seely's Fight Like a Girl is the answer; there’s enough information here to make you angry and enough resources to make you an effective activist. —Jennifer Baumgardner and Amy Richards, co-authors of Manifesta: Young Women, Feminism and the Future “Always engaging, interesting, and insightful. Fascinating and sure to engage many young women!” —Sherrie A. Inness, editor of Action Chicks “The resources, helpful hints about organizing and working with the press, the short bios of companies and fabulous feminists are great!” —Caryn Aviv, co-editor of American Queer, Then and Now Fight Like a Girl is packed with both information and inspiration for young women by a young woman who knows her stuff. It's a terrific practical feminist resource book with an optimistic attitude that says in clear language, “You're in charge of your life and here's how to stay that way”. —Gloria Feldt, former president, Planned Parenthood Federation of America and author of The War on Choice: The Right-Wing Attack on Women's Rights and How to Fight Back Fight Like a Girl offers a fearless vision for the future of feminism. By boldly detailing what is at stake for women and girls today, Megan Seely outlines the necessary steps to achieve true political, social and economic equity for all. Reclaiming feminism for a new generation, Fight Like a Girl speaks to young women who embrace feminism in substance but not necessarily in name. With an eye toward what it takes to create actual change, Seely offers a practical guide for how to get involved, take action and wage successful events and campaigns. The book is full of valuable resources for novice and committed activists alike, including such features as “How to Write a Press Release,” “Guidelines to a Good Media Interview,” “A Feminist Shopping Guide,” and a list of over 100 Fabulous Feminist Resources, including organizations, websites, and events to attend. Each chapter is full of ideas, both big and small, for ways to get involved, get active, and make a difference. Exploring such issues as body image and self-acceptance, education and empowerment, health and sexuality, political representation, economic justice, and violence against women, Fight Like a Girl looks at the challenges that women and girls face while emphasizing the strength that they independently, and collectively, embody. Seely delves into the politics of the feminist movement, exploring both women's history and current–day realities with easy-to-follow lists and timelines like those on “Women Who Made a Difference,” “Chronology of the U.S. Women's Movement,” and “Do's and Don'ts for Young Feminists.” A Third Wave manifesto as well as an introduction to feminism for a new generation, Fight Like A Girl is a powerful blueprint for young women today.

  • Genre : Social Science
  • Stroll through any public park in Brooklyn on a weekday afternoon and you will see black women with white children at every turn. Many of these women are of Caribbean descent, and they have long been a crucial component of New York's economy, providing childcare for white middle- and upper-middleclass families. Raising Brooklyn offers an in-depth look at the daily lives of these childcare providers, examining the important roles they play in the families whose children they help to raise. Tamara Mose Brown spent three years immersed in these Brooklyn communities: in public parks, public libraries, and living as a fellow resident among their employers, and her intimate tour of the public spaces of gentrified Brooklyn deepens our understanding of how these women use their collective lives to combat the isolation felt during the workday as a domestic worker. Though at first glance these childcare providers appear isolated and exploited—and this is the case for many—Mose Brown shows that their daily interactions in the social spaces they create allow their collective lives and cultural identities to flourish. Raising Brooklyn demonstrates how these daily interactions form a continuous expression of cultural preservation as a weapon against difficult working conditions, examining how this process unfolds through the use of cell phones, food sharing, and informal economic systems. Ultimately, Raising Brooklyn places the organization of domestic workers within the framework of a social justice movement, creating a dialogue between workers who don't believe their exploitative work conditions will change and an organization whose members believe change can come about through public displays of solidarity.

    The Naked And The Undead
  • Author : Cynthia Freeland
  • Publisher : Routledge
  • Pages : 315
  • ISBN : 9780429975868
  • Reader Reviews :
  • Genre : Social Science
  • Horror is often dismissed as mass art or lowbrow entertainment that produces only short-term thrills. Horror films can be bloody, gory, and disturbing, so some people argue that they have bad moral effects, inciting viewers to imitate cinematic violence or desensitizing them to atrocities. In The Naked and the Undead: Evil and the Appeal of Horror, Cynthia A. Freeland seeks to counter both aesthetic disdain and moral condemnation by focusing on a select body of important and revealing films, demonstrating how the genre is capable of deep philosophical reflection about the existence and nature of evil?both human and cosmic. In exploring these films, the author argues against a purely psychoanalytic approach and opts for both feminist and philosophical understandings. She looks at what it is in these movies that serves to elicit specific reactions in viewers and why such responses as fear and disgust are ultimately pleasurable. The author is particularly interested in showing how gender figures into screen presentations of evil.The book is divided into three sections: Mad Scientists and Monstrous Mothers, which looks into the implications of male, rationalistic, scientific technology gone awry; The Vampire's Seduction, which explores the attraction of evil and the human ability (or inability) to distinguish active from passive, subject from object, and virtue from vice; and Sublime Spectacles of Disaster, which examines the human fascination with horror spectacle. This section concludes with a chapter on graphic horror films like The Texas Chainsaw Massacre. Written for both students and film enthusiasts, the book examines a wide array of films including: The Silence of the Lambs, Repulsion, Frankenstein, The Fly, Dead Ringers, Alien, Bram Stoker's Dracula, Interview with the Vampire, Frenzy, The Shining, Eraserhead, Hellraiser, and many others.

  • Reader Reviews :
  • Genre : Computers
  • Internet usage in China has recently grown exponentially, rising from 59 million users in 2002 to 710 million by mid-2016. One in every two Chinese has currently been exposed to the Internet. This upsurge has made political communication among citizens and between the government and citizens less costly and almost instantaneous in China. Despite these advances, scholars are only beginning to understand and systematically explain the ways in which increased Internet exposure may affect behavior and values of Chinese netizens. Can the Internet help liberalize Chinese society due to its innate pluralism? Has the Internet become an efficient tool assisting the ruling elite to remain in power given the tendency of Internet service providers and users to be easily manipulated by the Chinese state? This book addresses these questions by focusing on the most digitally embedded segment of Chinese population – university students. Using survey evidence from more than 1200 observations, data confirm that Internet exposure to information generated by fellow netizens promotes democratic orientation, enhances political resistance to indoctrination, and boosts popular nationalism. However, exposure to government-managed websites encourages regime support and, at a less significance level, decreases democratic orientation, and elevates official patriotism. People who perceive the Internet as a tool enhancing the vertical communication between the Chinese government and netizens tend to become patriotic and supportive of the regime. Building upon quantitative evidence, this book draws a nuanced picture of Internet exposure and its political implications.

  • Genre : Education
  • "Fresh, provocative, timely, and important, this volume extends the field of sociocultural literacies in new directions."--Marjorie Faulstich Orellana, University of California, Los Angeles On the frontline of critical issues in education today, this book covers new ground for teachers and teacher educators for whom crisis is a daily part of their work. It explores the relationship between crisis and literacy in order to: improve educators’ ability to recognize, cope with, and avoid crisis; advance understanding of the dynamic relationship between crisis and cultural, historical, and political literacy practices; and contribute to a deeper theoretical understanding of literacy practices as they are situated in social practices. The types of crises addressed are diverse, including natural disaster, cultural and community disjuncture, homelessness, family upheaval, teen pregnancy, and disability. Along with nine empirical studies, a teacher early in her career, a veteran teacher, and teacher educators share their perspectives in commentary sections at the opening and conclusion of the book in order to provide applications to their specific fields.

  • Genre : Fiction
  • Clay Moloney, a cynical reporter with a regional Australian newspaper, is expecting an easy Sunday at work when the body of a young woman washes up at the Bay of Martyrs. The death is an inconvenience for Clay, who’s content filing obituaries and re-writing government press releases on the new multi-million-dollar airport. But the more he digs into the Bay of Martyrs incident, the more he realises the girl’s death is not a case of misadventure, despite what the police tell him. Clay becomes obsessed with the murder investigation, putting himself and his colleague Bec, an Irish-born photographer, in danger. Will Clay achieve justice for the young student, or will those in power stop him before he uncovers the truth? Master of “tartan noir” Tony Black collaborates with Australian author and reporter Matt Neal to create a thrilling criminal case of murder and corruption set on Australia’s south coast. Praise for BAY OF MARTYRS: “This is one hell of a read. Two authors is a tricky gig and most times results in a desultory effect. But here are two writers so in sync that it is seamless. A get-in-yer-face, down and dynamic read that grips and enthrals. Tony Black at the very height of his terrific talent and now with a double act to enrich his solid rep.” —Ken Bruen, author of The Guards and Priest “Bay of Martyrs is a piece of perfectly-crafted Australian coastal noir, from the body on the remote beach that sparks journalist Clay Moloney’s obsession, to the cast of bent cops, developers and a politician on the make. A dark gem from the first wave of Aussie mysteries that’s sweeping the world.” —Jock Serong, author of The Rules of Backyard Cricket and On Java Ridge “This was a great read. Really cool, interesting and unusual locales, with a fast-paced thriller narrative and some very sexy lead characters. Highly recommended.” —Tony Cavanaugh, author of Promise and Dead Girl Sing

  • With an outstanding Ultimate Sanction bounty still on her head, Koko Martstellar (ex-mercenary and saloon madam extraordinaire) and Jedidiah Flynn (former orbital sky-cop) have narrowly escaped death in paradise. Rescued during a storm, Koko and Flynn are taken in by what amounts to a self-sufficient outlander cult. To save Flynn’s life, Koko barters her warrior skills and assists the de-civ group in fending off their most imminent threat: a horde of genetic-mutant raiders. However, even with the group’s foes bested and their idealist lifestyle somewhat enticing, being among the outlander de-civs doesn’t sit well with Koko. In spite of the de-civ group’s hospitality and Flynn’s arguing that they have it pretty good, Koko suspects something is amiss. People within the outlander group’s interlocking compounds keep disappearing with flimsy explanations—people like the girl who died on the cliff before Koko and Flynn’s rescue—and soon the group’s leadership assesses Koko as a threat to their secret agenda. As the mystery unfolds, Koko’s limits and loyalties—perhaps even her love for Flynn—will be tested. And as if that isn’t enough, bounty agent Wire has managed to track down Koko and, after a little politicking, is preparing to lead an army of genetic-mutant raiders in a last-man-standing battle against the cult . . .

  • This is not a book about Religion. Using the real birthday of Jesus, kinda, plus fractals and other patterns found in nature, I have created several new zodiac charts to help locate, and describe, the evil ones amoung us. I gave these charts such names as ' Heaven to Hell', ' Child, Teen, Adult', 'Leaping Lizards', and my favorite, 'The Wheel of Good & Evil'. With certain specific patterns, I was able to locate such horrible people as 'The Professional Victims', 'People of Rage', and 'The Laughing Idiots'. A "Health Chart' is included that might help you feel better and look younger for years longer. It uses the seperation of white light through a prism, or the power of 3, to let you know who on the zodiac wheel might help in restoring you back to life.

  • Reader Reviews :
  • Genre : Literary Criticism
  • Science fiction produced in the 1970s has long been undervalued, dismissed by Bruce Sterling as confused, self-involved, and stale. The New Wave was all but over and Cyberpunk had yet to arrive. The decade polarised sf - on the one hand it aspired to be a serious form, addressing issues such as race, Vietnam, feminism, ecology and sexuality, on the other hand it broke box office records with Star Wars, Close Encounters of the Third Kind, Alien and Superman: The Movie. Beginning with chapters on the First sf and New Wave authors who published during the 1970s, Solar Flares examines the ways in which the genre confronted a new epoch and its own history, including the rise of fantasy, the sf blockbuster, children's sf, pseudoscience and postmodernism. It explores significant figures such as Joanna Russ, Samuel R. Delany and Octavia Butler. From Larry Niven's Ringworld to Thomas M. Disch's On Wings of Song, from The Andromeda Strain to Flash Gordon and from Doctor Who to Buck Rogers, this book reclaims seventies sf writing, film and television - alongside music and architecture - as a crucial period in the history of science fiction.

    The October Circle
  • Author : Robert Littell
  • Publisher : ABRAMS
  • Pages : 203
  • ISBN : 9781590209134
  • Reader Reviews :
  • Genre : Fiction
  • This harrowing Cold War thriller from the New York Times–bestselling author of The Company is “a brave, ambitious, and most worthy book” (The Washington Post). Connoisseurs of the literary spy thriller rank Robert Littell up there with John le Carré, Graham Greene, and Alan Furst in the first tier of the genre’s pantheon. Set against the backdrop of the Russian invasion of Prague, The October Circle is one of Littell’s most riveting early works. “Littell is our best exponent of the real Realpolitikal thriller—this one taking place in Sofia in 1968, in a thin, gray ‘present ridiculous’ after the Russians impose their so-called peaceful counterrevolution on Bulgaria and Czechoslovakia . . . Littell has a graphic command of the ‘present ridiculous’ while lending here and there, through assorted characters, an inventive sense of the absurd—but then can we quite demarcate the absurd from the heroic? He’s also a fine ironist, with lines like ‘A Communist is someone who, when he smells roses, looks around for a coffin’ branded on the pages of his intensive, involving novel. Littell writes not only above the genre but beyond it—with smoke rings of conjecture and a striking show of courage.” —Kirkus Reviews (starred review) “Exotic setting, constantly surprising . . . and a clockwork plot.” —Newsweek “Exciting . . . This author can tell a story!” —Chicago Daily News

  • "A work of evil genius that put me in a literal trance and didn't relinquish me until the final page. I loved every insidious second.” —Mona Awad, author of Bunny A darkly comic suburban Gothic about a malevolent force that targets a group of Ohio misfits, harnessing their angst for its sinister designs. Something strange is happening to the teens in Adena, Ohio. A mysterious force is seeking inroads: vulnerabilities to exploit, friendships to hijack, untapped rage to harness toward its own ends. Who will serve it best? Claire is abrasive and aimless, embarrassed by her privilege. Weak-willed David entertains fantasies of cultish orgies, while Tyler covertly takes up residence in his basement. Greg wages war on the voices in his head, while his sister Beth quietly, furiously unravels. And at the center is the empathetic, naive Sarah. The force wants her most of all. But will she be the key to its success or its destruction? Eerie, hypnotic, and shot through with dark comedy, String Follow is a razor-sharp suburban gothic that exposes the sweating, bleeding truth of how kids become adults in twenty-first-century America. Simon Jacobs blends the startlingly original and the uncannily familiar, revealing the dark chaos that lurks beneath the surface of Midwestern suburbia.

    Sex Radical Cinema
  • Author : Carol Siegel
  • Publisher : Indiana University Press
  • Pages : 244
  • ISBN : 9780253018113
  • Reader Reviews :
  • Genre : Performing Arts
  • In this provocative study of cinematic and televisual representations of "sex radicalism," Carol Siegel explores how representations of sexually explicit content on film have shaped American cultural visions of sex and sexual politics in the 21st century. Siegel distinguishes between a liberal approach to visual representations, which has over-emphasized normative equal opportunity while undervaluing our distinctive erotic selves, and a radical approach to visual representation, which portrays forbidden sexualities and desires. She illustrates how visual media participates in and even drives political policies related to pedophilia, prostitution, interracial relationships, and war. By examining such popular film and television shows as Mystic River, The Wire, Fifty Shades of Grey, Batman Returns, and the HBO hits, Sex and the City and Girls, Siegel takes the discussion of radical sex in the movies out of the margins of political discussions and puts it in the center, where, she argues, it has belonged all along.

    Victorian Travel Writing and Imperial Violence

  • Reader Reviews :
  • Genre : Fiction
  • This study explores the cultural and political impact of Victorian travelers' descriptions of physical and verbal violence in Africa. Travel narratives provide a rich entry into the shifting meanings of colonialism, as formal imperialism replaced informal control in the Nineteenth century. Offering a wide-ranging approach to travel literature's significance in Victorian life, this book features analysis of physical and verbal violence in major exploration narratives as well as lesser-known volumes and newspaper accounts of expeditions. It also presents new perspectives on Olive Schreiner and Joseph Conrad by linking violence in their fictional travelogues with the rhetoric of humanitarian trusteeship.

  • Genre : Young Adult Nonfiction
  • Fortunately or unfortunately, I knew Ted Bundy pretty much all my blooming life. I hope you can spend some time with this book and enjoy it. About King Arthur and things: Guinevere here is going on at length about Sir “Ted” Lancelot there in print and see if it finally works. And puts bread on our table, because I’m afraid of my job as an agent. Intermittent pay, as dangerous as the week I spent with a serial murderer. Who turned out to be as good as he was evil. Because he was both a Nazi and a Vietnam War veteran. Over time, the changes he put into effect may come out on the good side. Theoretically. Such as increased security measures. Ted was eventually willing, maybe all along, to participate in the good side of things. He was executed at 42, a little young. During an Era where men his age were regularly shot at around 19 years old. In Vietnam. And while Black people etc were being executed, especially women, with nobody much giving a damn. Then why did I ever write this nonesuch book? One way or another, I'm sitting here in this building we found due to Ted. And I'm alive because of him too. So I not only have my life, I and my husband have a home due to him. Because of conjugal visits, which Ted helped establish. During our relationship, we made a pact with each other, sealing it with our hands held tight, that we would Improve the World, somehow. I spent years putting Ted behind me, due to human cruelty and our breakup. Got mixed up about things, too, thought he was someone else. I know now it was Ted Bundy – I fell so damn in love with him. Well, the big galoot carried me naked, while he was naked, through snow long enough for us to find civilization again. I had originally set out to kill him. Six-foot Ted Bundy. Ron Schwarz was five foot ten more or less. You start out a fetus and shrink and grow. So does your little man. Purple or otherwise. I have no little man. I’m just one woman, married now to the man Ted thought I would find years later: a potentially good man. Ted was evil and knew it, but not to me. Ted tried, and didn't quite manage, to rape me. In spite of the Universe, I loved him too much. Scratched his cornea, not with my fingernails. He started out trying to slice me open and then strangle me to death. I told him I loved him, it worked. He quit pretty quickly on hurting or killing me. Why? I don’t know to this day. Bruce Lee is whose invisible hand I held before maybe being gutted by Theodore Robert Bundy – may he Rest in Peace. Ted needed direction in life from his dead victims. He was lost, confused, Disabled and gone. But hanging in there. I was the lady who pretty much was his dead victims. I’m covered all over with age spots. Ted said HE was racially impure and that I was Gorgeous. I cared about him, deeply. I dragged him to the hospital to get him onto methadone. He was a serious heroin addict. Was I one of his victims? Yes, in some ways. Maybe, he was one of mine. I was the only such woman studying Bruce Lee. Li Chiang, alias Bruce and company, got to me first. Tedders tried in a casual way to kill me. Also, the car was parked in Vail, Colorado. We traveled all the way from Aspen to Vail. The VW bug is now in a museum. He was a Daddy, and something tried to turn his story into A Tale of Two Cities. I told him, Ted, if it necessitates killing me to get you back to your wife and children, I’m fine on it. He asked me which execution I wanted him to exercise on me. Also he knew which method was probably the worst one. So he could pay for the murders. Much less pain than he put all of his victims through. Or each one of them is now Ted Bundy back there somewhere. How about me instead, but no, he’s a man dead and I’m an alive woman… “Well, Ted, how about the electric chair?” I stated. He went for Old Sparky. Worst possible one. Died on a day important to me in 1989, probably of asphyxiation. I’m no man. However, I turned his life around after he’d already turned it around. He swooped at me with a giant silver switchblade, but he was big and bulky and I was female and lithe. Still, it was difficult to back up and see it coming. I’d learned to do so in karate class, and I knew he was waiting for me behind the door. “What about ducking is so damn female, Ted?” Obviously to Tedders it was male to use the knife. Woody Allen got it; it’s a symbolic penis. Like the Nazi salute. It’s not a choice. But we all can do that with weapons, really. Liked the lying in his arms best because I’m low thyroid. His heart beating and me sighing. We watched TV and ate popcorn together; among other things we manage to do while on the lam. We commandeered a house, did other fascinating things and had a great time. But I kept turning him over to the authorities. Who kept setting him free, and every single time he kept drifting on back to me. I loved being with him, he was incredibly brave, but in the end, he had blazed through something like 35-100 people, illegally. Male and female people. Loved and hated him maximally. He was different, so was I, and we ended up saving each other’s lives. Which continues to this day, he’s part of why I’m able to sit here typing this out. If life only leads to death, he got me to live mine.

    How Can I Fix It?
  • Author : Larry Cuban
  • Publisher : Teachers College Press
  • Pages : 86
  • ISBN : 0807740497
  • Reader Reviews :
  • Genre : Education
  • With this highly accessible and unique little guide, Larry Cuban offers educators indispensable tools to make sense of the daily complexities they encounter in their work. Teachers face dozens of classroom situations where conflicts occur. Similarly, principals wrestle with school issues that call for changes in attitudes, behaviours, and procedures. Because the process is so familiar, even expert teachers and principals often have difficulty in explaining what it is that they do and how they go about solving problems and coping with dilemmas in their classrooms and schools. Using concrete and varied examples drawn from the workplace, Cuban presents vivid and provocative case studies of practitioners’ experiences in urban and suburban schools that deal with the routine conflicts of school. He draws on his own extensive experience in public schools and his research into teaching and administration to set forth a practical framework for identifying, defining, and coping with both puzzling problems and tension-filled dilemmas. A much-needed resource for both new and experienced practitioners, How Can I Fix It? focuses on common skills that practitioners have, but seldom take time to consider, and applies these skills to concrete situations.

  • Reader Reviews :
  • Genre : Literary Criticism
  • America’s Changing Icons is a discursive examination of the female patriotic icon in the United States. This creative and entertaining work examines her use and decline, particularly in the 20th century, with a particular focus on popular culture icons like Lady Columbia, Rosie the Riveter, and Wonder Woman. These fictional creations, used with advertisements; letters; and literature of the eras work together to craft a multi-layered and dynamic portrait of cultural politics, tides, and perceptions about American women, life, and place.
