A Woman's Friendship [Colonial Text Series], Ada Cambridge [Edited by Elizabeth Morrison]
1 Ada Cambridge [Edited by Elizabeth Morrison] A Woman's Friendship [Colonial Text Series]
New South Wales University Press 235144 Australia 1988 0868401633 / 9780868401638 Softcover Good Condition The grand Melbourne Exhibition of 1888 is a most agreeable place for Margaret Clive, a journalist's wife, and Patty Kinnaird, married to a squatter, to pursue their 'purely intellectual friendship' with handsome, widowed and wealthy Seaton Macdonald ... The triangular relationship changes, however, when the women are house guests at Yattock, Macdonald's magnificent country property - and unadmitted attractions begin to surface. In this gentle satire of class and sexuality, Ada Cambridge opens a window on Melbourne society of the 1880s and illuminates some important issues of the day - reform of dress and diet, the 'marriage question', socialism and women's suffrage. 177 pages.

Communion: The Female Search For Love, Bell Hooks
2 Bell Hooks Communion: The Female Search For Love
William Morrow 234339 USA 2002 0066214424 / 9780066214429 Hardcover Near Fine Condition Near Fine Renowned visionary and theorist bell hooks began her exploration of the meaning of love in American culture with the critically acclaimed All About Love: New Visions. She continued her national dialogue with the bestselling Salvation: Black People and Love. Now hooks culminates her triumphant trilogy of love with Communion: The Female Search for Love. Intimate, revealing, provocative, Communion challenges every female to courageously claim the search for love as the heroic journey we must all choose to be truly free. In her trademark commanding and lucid language, hooks explores the ways ideas about women and love were changed by feminist movement, by women's full participation in the workforce, and by the culture of self-help. Communion is the heart-to-heart talk every woman -- mother, daughter, friend, and lover -- needs to have. 244 pages. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: 1-2 kilos.

The Bitch In The House - 26 Women Tell The Truth About Sex, Solitude, Work, Motherhood and Marriage, Cathi Hanauer [Editor]
3 Cathi Hanauer [Editor] The Bitch In The House - 26 Women Tell The Truth About Sex, Solitude, Work, Motherhood and Marriage
Viking / Penguin 231646 Great Britain 2003 0670914371 / 9780670914371 Trade Paperback Very Good Condition "This book was born out of anger," begins Cathi Hanauer, which seems appropriate considering the book's title: The Bitch in the House. What could have been a collective gripe about the day-to-day routine of holding a family or relationship together is instead a witty, and sometimes bitchy, read. These postfeminist mothers, lovers, wives, and independent women candidly put forward their anger in the taffy-pull world of household responsibility. Jill Bialosky puts it most succinctly, "I had wanted to get married, but I realized now that I had never wanted to be a 'wife'." There are essays written by those who willfully, and often playfully, seek a life independent from domesticated routine, and others who have aged past the concerns of being a self-fulfilled and responsible mother. Author and poet Ellen Gilchrist, who is also a mother and a grandmother, sets this lasting tone of contentment, "Family and work. Family and work. I can let them be at war, with guilt as their nuclear weapon and mutually assured destruction as their aim, or I can let them nourish each other." Light tanning to pages. Quantity Available: 1.

The Whole Woman, Germaine Greer
8 Germaine Greer The Whole Woman
Transworld 233632 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.

The Whole Woman, Germaine Greer
9 Germaine Greer The Whole Woman
Anchor 232536 Great Britain 2000 1862300577 / 9781862300576 Softcover Good Condition For women born in the immediate postwar period, there were the years BG and AG--"before Greer" and "after Greer." It's all too easy to underestimate its influence, but the fact is that in 1970 every self-respecting woman on the Left owned a copy of The Female Eunuch. Thirty years later, Germaine Greer is ready to get angry again. In The Whole Woman, she analyses, among other issues, the invasive ways in which the health industry persuades women to have their bodies and reproductive systems "managed." Greer lays out the facts about the high failure rate and devastating side effects of in vitro fertilisation and the incongruence between the "success" of breast implants in achieving the "perfect" mammary to please men and the continuing failures in detecting and treating increasingly prevalent breast cancer. Greer's polemic has the confident virtuosity of wit and maturity. Celebrating women's successes, The Whole Woman is a more positive book than The Female Eunuch. Her unique combination of outrageous humour and assertiveness continues to lead the way forward for women who want to take control of their lives. 452 pages. Quantity Available: 1.

Mother-Mysteries, Maren Tonder Hansen
11 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.

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.

Karen Moline, Belladonna The truth about female competition! Have you coveted, envied, admired another woman's hair, shoes, bag, job, husband, figure or weight this morning? Have you ever breathed a sigh of relief when your ex's new girlfriend turns out to be fatter, uglier or poorer than you? Thought Anything She Can Do I Can Do Better? Chances are, if you're a woman who engages in society (read, leaves the house), you're competitive - not that you'll admit it. Female competition is a taboo topic. It's covert, rarely spoken about in public, but it exists. We owe it to the future generations of women to encourage the way we compete with each other to be a positive experience in the game of life. 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. 263 pages.
