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 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.

" 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.

Equality and the Rights of Women

 Hardcover Hardcover. Very Good Condition/Very Good. First Edition. there is some scuffing of the surface of the dustjacket, and a very short tear central to the top edge of the rear panel. No other damage, no annotations. In the first 3 chapters the author discusses some of the Gallup Terry and proposals and considers the notion of equality as applied to things and that of the equality of peers. In the next chapter she looks of the rulings of the Supreme Court relating to gender, showing that some were based not on egalitarianism reasoning, but on the acknowledgement of special needs and rights. She then asks, "why are we so inclined to view human beings as if they were sexless and androgynous?" And answers by pointing to the purely rational and spiritual view of human nature which is implicit throughout western ethical and social thought. The final Discusses the atomistic model of society which dominates much of philosophy, social science, and economics – which, she feels has created logical obstacles to recognition of women's rights.

ISBN: 1863305130
Minerva , Port Melbourne, 1996. First Edition
 Softcover Softcover. Very Good Condition/. First Edition. Includes bibliographical references (p. 166-183). This book attempts to account for the shifting of the feminist debate by looking at the highly practical breed of feminism that is the practice of many young women's lives. Placed in the context of the debate stirred up by Helen Garner's The 1st Stone, this book argues in defence of a generation of women who are now prepared to speak out about the culture of harassment and assault that still persists in many areas of Australian life. The book analyses the confusing and insidious messages being imparted to younger women about their future and feminism, really not so much a backlash as a backslide away from political commitment. – Page 11 Size: 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. 183 pages.
