The Double Standard: A Feminist Critique of Feminist Social Science
Eichler, Margrit
ISBN: 0709901771
Croom Helm UK 1980 1st Edition
12mo Glossy Soft Cover 151 indexed pages. Name and date in front fly. This powerfully written book challenges the logic of much of the current feminist literature in the social sciences. Although loyal to the tradition of feminist scholarship, Margrit Eichler argues that many feminist writers have unintentionally reinforced the sexual stereotypes that they seek to destroy, by using the wrong conceptual tools and the wrong language. Terms like ‘sex roles’ and ‘sex identity’ have been especially distorting because they are ambiguous, and in themselves become instruments of sexism. In both the language they employ and the explanations they offer, feminists must transcend sex as a criterion of social difference if they wish to overcome sexism in language and thought. This book argues that the double standard is the only relevant criterion for determining whether an identi?ed sex difference is a matter of concern or not. (A double standard implies that two things which are the same are measured by different standards). Although usually employed in a strictly sexual sense the concept may be used for all types of behaviourin which sex plays a role. Work and play provide one of the mostimportant examples of this. Until recently work was equated with paid work only. Unpaid work was considered non-work and therefore did not deserve pay. Recent analyses of the work women do has demonstrated that women do a lot of work which is substantially comparable to work done by men but women do it without pay. If we put the stress on the behaviours themselves - the work process - it is clear that a double standard has been applied which has differentially rewarded the sexes for engaging in identical behaviour. The arguments of this book are controversial and provoking, but they sharpen the thinking of the feminist critique in a way that few other books have achieved. CONTENTS: lntroduction; The Double Standard in Behaviour; Expectations: the lnadequacy of the Sex;Roles Approach; The Double Standard Internalised: the Inadequacy of the Sex Identity Approach; The Double Standard in the Social Structure: the lnadequacy of Class Analysis; Conclusion: Whither Feminism?  Good

Freedom & Entrapment

ISBN: 186371555X
Dove Australia 1995 1st Edition
12mo Glossy Pictorial Soft Cover xiv + 264 indexed pages including bibliographical references. Feminist theology must articulate a spiritual feminist vision that affirms the dignity, self-determination, human rights and well being of every woman around the globe. Freedom & Entrapment both invites and challenges its readers to engage in such a critical feminist discourse, spiritual-religious vision, and struggle from below. This is a unique and important book, at once scholarly, topical and provocative. What is offered here is a collection of learned and insightful essays on Christian theology and feminism by leading Australian women scholars. The contributors to this volume explore the complex theme of 'Freedom and Entrapment' from a variety of disciplinary stances, and in so doing enrich our understanding of the many threads of meaning that comprise the Christian outlook. This is not an exercise in the academic study of religion. but a vigorous engagement by the contributors from within their diverse Christian traditions: Catholic. Anglican. Protestant, Orthodox and Aboriginal. One of the compelling features of this book is its balanced combination of erudition and practicality. The related concepts of entrapment and freedom, coercion and liberation. are treated here in original and sophisticated ways by intelligent writers bent on changing the way we live. Issues arising from church reform, gender and race relations. biblical exegesis, theological discourse and feminist history will in this book, treat the reader to an invigorating experience of feminist writing at its best. The contributors are Veronica Brady, Patricia Brennan, Maryanne Confoy, Veronica Lawson. Dorothy Lee, Leonie Liveris, Joan Nowotny, Anne Pattel-Gray. Muriel Porter, Elaine Wainwright and Erin White.

Gender and Power: Society, the Person and Sexual Politics
Connell, R.W.
ISBN: 0041500865
Allen & Unwin Australia 1987 1st Edition
12mo Pictorial Soft Cover xvii + 334 indexed pages. For many years now Bob Connell has been the most original male writer venturing into the difficult terrain of gender relations. His writing is lucid, scholarly and inspiring; indispensable for anyone trying to understand and challenge existing power relations between men and women.' Lynne Segal Sexual politics - from economic equality to anti-gay violence - is a vast area of debate. This exceptional new book seeks to integrate gender and sexuality into the mainstream of social and political theory with the aim of challenging and transforming these traditional areas. The book is an original contribution to theory, setting out for the first time a systematic framework for the social analysis of gender and sexuality. It is written with a clarity and scope that also make it useful as an introductory textbook on sexual politics. The book reviews major theories of gender from feminism to psychoanalysis, sex role theory and sociobiology. It maps the structure of gender relations in contemporary life and in history; proposes a new approach to femininity and masculinity; and offers a wide-ranging analysis of sexual politics and the dynamics of change, from working-class feminism to the dilemmas of the 'men's movement'. Connell has produced a major work of synthesis and scholarship which will be of unique value to students and professionals in sociology, politics, psychology, women's studies, gay studies, and to anyone interested in sexual politics. Bob Connell is Professor of Sociology at Macquarie University, Australia, and the co-author and author of a number of books including Making the Difference and Which Way is Up?

The Vagina Monologues: The V-Day Edition
Ensler, Eve
ISBN: 0375756981
Villard U.S.A. 2001 1st Edition
12mo Pictorial Soft Cover 188 pages. I decided to talk to women about their vaginas, to do vagina interviews, which became vagina monologues ...At first women were reluctant to talk. They were a little shy. But once they got going, you couldn't stop them. Women secretly love to talk about their vaginas. They get very excited, mainly because no one's ever asked them before.' Eve Ensler A poignant and hilarious tour of the last frontier, the ultimate forbidden zone, THE VAGINA MONOLOGUES is a celebration of female sexuality in all its complexity and mystery. Hailed as the bible for a new generation of women, it has been performed in cities and colleges throughout the world, and has inspired a dynamic grassroots movement -- V-Day -- to stop violence against women. Witty and irreverent, compassionate and wise, Eve Ensler's award-winning masterpiece gives voice to real women's deepest fantasies and fears, guaranteeing that no one who reads it will ever look at a woman's body, or think of sex, in quite the same way again.  Good

Women of Spirit: Woman’s Place in Church and Society
Nelson, Janet; Walter, Linda
ISBN: 0909446040
St Mark's Canberra Australia 1989 1st Edition
12mo Glossy Pictorial Soft Cover 201 pages. In this book there is no attempt to provide a single, simple answer to the question. "Woman's Place in Church and Society?" Rather, its aim is to encourage each woman to think about who she is, who she could be, where she is at present, where she would like to be, where she can find a place that allows her to use her gifts fully and to express her true identity. The book focuses unashamedly on women’s experience and is written mainly for women to use. We are happy if it also proves enlightening for men. In the first chapter we look at ourselves, our sense of identity, our sense of self-worth. How do we see ourselves? How do others see us? Do we see ourselves primarily as individuals, or as in relationship with other people? Do we see ourselves in relationship with God, made in the image of God? We will take our relationship with God as a reference point from which to grow and explore. In the second and third chapters we look at some of the beliefs and ideas which have shaped society’s views of a woman’s place. For centuries the Bible has been a source of authority in Judeo-Christian culture. What do the scriptures contribute to our ideas about women? A major in?uence in this century has been feminism. What is feminism, and how does it affect our lives? Does it conflict with scripture’? What do Christian feminists say? There are three work ‘places’ in which women find themselves today - the home, the community and the paid workforce. Chapters four, five and six consider women’s contributions to the paid and unpaid workforces, the problems women encounter and the opportunities that exist for growth and fulfilment. Chapter seven looks at woman’s place in her body, at the particular dif?culties and the blessings of being in a woman’s body. For a Christian woman her ‘place’ in the church is of particular importance. Chapter eight traces a slender thread of church women through the ages. It looks at the way in which the church has traditionally viewed women, what roles it has recognised as appropriate for women. It looks at ministries women perform in the church. In the Anglican Church in Australia the question of a woman’s place is at present a major issue confronting the church. Chapter nine deals specifically with the ordination of women to the orders of deacon, priest and bishop. In all these studies we are thinking about ourselves - who we are, where we are, where we want to be. In the final chapter we look at what it might mean to find a place of our own. It will be plain to the reader that many ideas in this book have come through the writings of other people. They have our grateful recognition. Other ideas are our own, an outcome of conversations over many years as we have discovered that two basic strands of our lives-feminism and Christianity - are inextricably interwoven, shaping the way in which we understand life. The church has resisted acknowledging this connection between feminism and Christianity. She has drawn back in alarm and has disowned feminism. We long for the time when the church will be prepared to look more closely at the features of feminism, for perhaps then she will be able to recognise feminism not as a changeling, but as a child of her own heart to love and embrace. Although we have worked closely together on the writing of this book, and see it very much as a collaborative venture, we speak from different backgrounds and with distinctive voices. Janet wrote chapters 1, 3, 4, 5, 6 and 9. Chapters 2, 7, 8 and 10 were written by Linda. Andrew Hingeley worked with us on the guidelines for group study at the end of the book. We write not as trained theologians, but out of a conviction that our own experience provides for each one of us ground for deep theological re?ection and spiritual insight We dedicate this book to all women who are in the process of becoming what God has created us to be. It does not yet appear what we shall be but we know that when God appears we shall be like God. (1 John 3: 2, 3). (J.N. and L.W.)  Good

Far and Beyon’
Dow, Unity
ISBN: 1876756071
Spinifex Press Australia 2001 1st Australian Edition
12mo Glossy Pictorial Soft Cover vi + 199 pages. For Mara, mother of four, sole provider for her family, life has never been easy. In a community that relies upon traditional magic to cure AIDS, and blames bad luck upon a bewitching curse, women carry a heavy burden as the world changes around them. But in modern Botswana, the tensions are growing as more and more young people adopt white ways and challenge the heavily divided structure of African society. For Mara, it is her children's dismissal of all the ancient magicks that have held families together for generations; for her son Stan it is the opportunities represented by his white teachers and the education system; and for daughter Mosa it is her burgeoning awareness of the inequality of her home, and community. Together they will develop new strengths and define new goals, enabling them all to triumph and travel 'far and beyon'. Unity Dow is the first woman in Botswana to be appointed High Court judge. Dow has a long record as a human rights attorney, co-founding the Women and Law in Southern Africa Research Project and is a member of International Women's Rights Watch an advocacy organisation. In 1995 Dow challenged the government over the 1982 Citizenship Act, under which Botswana women married to foreigners could not pass on their nationality to their children, though Botswana men married to foreigners could. This led to passage of a legislation that gave women the right to pass on their nationality to their children. Some foxing to page edges.  Good

THE FEMININE IDEAL
Thesander, Marianne
ISBN: 1861890044
Reaktion Books London 1997 First Edition
 Hardcover With illustrations, A fine copy in fine dustjacket. In "The Feminine Ideal", Marianne Thesander examines the significance of the female body, beauty and culture. She shows how the female body is constantly being changed, and by various sometimes punishing means made to fit in with current feminine physical ideals. The use of corsets, bras, make-up, cosmetics and body decoration either emphasizes or plays down specific aspects of the female form. Marianne Thesander considers: sin and virtue; the forbidden, the concealed, the alluring body; and, woman as object, fetish and erotic sign. With extensive use of illustrative material, she examines the fashion history of underwear from the eighteenth century to the present day, exploring the significance of changing 'models' of the feminine. ; 240 x 155mm; 228 pages Fine in Fine dust jacket
