The Whole Woman, Germaine Greer
3 Germaine Greer The Whole Woman
Doubleday 237900 London 1999 038560016X / 9780385600163 Trade Paperback Very Good Condition No Dust Jacket Germaine Greer proclaims that the time has come to get angry again! Modern feminism has become the victim of unenlightened complacency, and what started out in the Sixties as a movement for liberation has become one that has sought and settled for equality. With fiery rhetoric, authoritative insight, outrageous humour and broad-ranging debate, Greer shows that, although women have indeed come a very long way in the last thirty years, the notion of our 'having it all' has disguised the persistent discrimination and exploitation that continues to exist for women in the basic areas of health, sex, politics, economics and marketing. Erudite, eccentric, provocative and invigorating, Germaine Greer once again sets the agenda for the future of feminism. Here is all the polemical power that sold over a million copies of The Female Eunuch and kept its author at the heart of controversy ever since. The Whole Woman was a No. 1 Sunday Times bestseller for five weeks when it was first published in 1999, and was hailed by the critics as a 'polemical bomb' (Guardian) and as required reading for thinking adults everywhere. 350 pages.

Mother-Mysteries, Maren Tonder Hansen
7 Maren Tonder Hansen Mother-Mysteries
Shambhala 235289 USA 1997 1570622523 / 9781570622526 Softcover Very Good Condition A tender and funny exploration of the sacred dimension of motherhood. When a woman becomes pregnant she is suddenly carried far beyond the self she previously knew. She becomes a vessel through which life proceeds, and she begins to learn something of the spiritual forces that ignite all of life. Maren Hansen's book explores this inner experience of motherhood as a timeless and universal expression of feminine spirituality. Drawing on the experience of her own three pregnancies in chapters like "Raging Hormones" and "The Venus of Willendorf and Me," she takes the reader on an amusing but thought-provoking tour through morning sickness, amniocentesis, preparing a nest, birth, postpartum depression, nursing, and working outside the home. The deepest spiritual realities, she shows, are intertwined with the commonest daily events. 339 pages. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: Under 1 kilogram.

Fire With Fire: The New Female Power and How It Will Change the 21st Century, Naomi Wolf
11 Naomi Wolf Fire With Fire: The New Female Power and How It Will Change the 21st Century
Vintage 232534 Great Britain 1994 0099329611 / 9780099329619 Softcover Very Good Condition n her bestselling book The Beauty Myth, Naomi Wolf sought to change the way in which women see themselves in relation to their bodies. Now she focuses on how they see themselves in relation to power. She argues that the feminist movement has to change if it is to speak to a new generation of women, and that, even as women are gaining more ground than ever before, a wariness of feminist orthodoxies keeps them away from the only movement capable of putting political clout behind their personal success. The book represents a call to women to throw off centuries of conditioning about the relationship between power and femininity. 378 pages. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: Under 1 kilogram.

Woman: An Intimate Geography, Natalie Angier
12 Natalie Angier Woman: An Intimate Geography
Virago 242728 Great Britain 1999 1860496857 / 9781860496851 Trade Paperback Good Condition This book brings to the understanding of the female body the talents of one of the most gifted science writers in English. Beginning with the egg & ending with the love of the female body is the template in this witty, searching, gleefully opinionated book. 'The idea of the body as a package of discrete organs, each operating independently of one another, is fast becoming outmoded & nearly useless. In fact, the interactions between organ systems are what count; they make us who we are,' says Angier. These interactions have stories to tell about the sources of aggression & sexuality, female sensations & smells, anger & pleasure. She explores hormones-oestrogen, testosterone, serotonin, adrenaline, pheromones-the chemistry of orgasm, pregnancy, breast milk & menopause. What can biology tell us about who we are? Every chapter is one to marvel at. Cumulatively, they 'sing the body electric,' as Walt Whitman wrote. From the double vantage of calm scrutiny & personal passion, this book gives us a fresh vision of what makes a woman. 398 pages. Pages browned at edges. Quantity Available: 1.

This means acknowledging our competitive thoughts, not judging them. Speaking openly, looking at what triggers our own competitiveness, discovering why we compete in some situations and not in others and then working with what we know.
