The F Word: How We Learned to Swear by Feminism
Caro, Jane and Catherine Fox
ISBN: 9780868408231
New South Books 2008  2008 
  8vo softcover 250pp near fine. Index. When it comes to the work/life balance, modern women continually find themselves in a no-win situation where they are criticised regardless of the path they choose. The F Word: How we learned to swear by feminism argues that the pervasive idea that women will never be able to effectively combine work or interests outside the home with marriage, a social life and parenting is a furphy. In their lively and topical new book, Caro and Fox combine both personal experience and the stories of a range of women with the big picture, and provide practical suggestions for forgiving ourselves, having fun and not giving up while holding it all together.

The Memoirs of Gluckel of Hameln
Gluckel of Hameln [ Translated by Marvin Lowenthal ],
ISBN: 0805205721
Schocken Books, New York, 1977.

The text is illustrated with a few contemporary black-and-white illustrations. Faint age toning of the text block edges. Small creased at the bottom right-hand corner of the front panel. No other damage to describe. " Begun in 1690, the story of a forty-four-year-old German Jewish widow, mother of 14 children, tells how she guided the financial and personal destinies of her children, how she engaged in trade, ran her own factory, and promoted the welfare of her large family. Her memoir, a bare account of an ordinary woman, enlightened not just her children, for whom she wrote it, but all prosperity about her life and community. Gluckel speaks to us with determination and humour from the 17th century. She tells of war, plague, pirates, soldiers, the hysteria of the false messiah Sabbtai Zevi, murder, bankrupt, wedding feasts, births deaths, in fact, of all human events that befell her during her lifetime. She writes in a matter-of-fact way of the frightening and precarious situation under which the Jews of northern Germany lived. Accepting this situation is given, she boldly and fearlessly promotes her business, her family and her faith." -- from the rear panel blurb. . Size: Large Format Paperback.

Episiotomy and the Second stage of labour
Kitzinger, Sheila & Simkin, Penny,
ISBN: 0937604070
Pennypress, Minnesota, 1986. 
  Softcover. Very Good Condition/. Illustrator: Drawings & graphs. Second Edition. The evidence for the routine or liberal use of episiotomy is unconvincing.

We hope these papers will be of assistance to those working in midwifery, obstetrics and gynaecology, to antenatal teachers wishing to help women learn how they can help themselves, those faced with the task of counselling mothers suffering postpartum sexual difficulties, and all women who want to have choice in childbirth.
