The Bitch In The House - 26 Women Tell The Truth About Sex, Solitude, Work, Motherhood and Marriage, Cathi Hanauer [Editor]
1 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
5 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.

Fire With Fire: The New Female Power and How It Will Change the 21st Century, Naomi Wolf
7 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.

Anything She Can Do, I Can Do Better: The Truth About Female Competition, Rachael Oakes-Ash

Random House 233212 Australia 2003 1740511182 / 9781740511186 Softcover Good Condition 'A man would stab you in the chest, a woman would stab you in the back.' 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.
