Daughters of Arabia
Sasson, Jean
ISBN: 0553816934
Bantam Books, USA, 1994. 
  Paperback. Good/. Reprint. 317 pages. Covers have light creasing. Spine has minor lean and moderate reading creases. Pages are lightly tanned. Following "Princess", dealing with women's lives behind the veil within the royal family of Saudi Arabia, this book now turns the spotlight on Princess Sultana's teenage daughters, Maha and Amani. Surrounded by great opulence and luxury from they day they were born, but stifled by the restrictive lifestyle imposed on them, they have reacted in desperate ways. Their stories, and those which concern other members of Princess Sultana's huge family, are set against a rich backcloth of Saudi Arabian culture and social mores, which the book depicts. It details, for example, the ritual of the annual pilgrimage to Mecca, as the princess and her family journey to this holiest of cities. Throughout the book, however, she never tires of her quest to expose the injustices which her society levels against women. In her campaign to improve the lot of her own daughters, Princess Sultana strikes a chord amongst those women who are lucky enough to have the freedom to speak out for themselves. The author lived in Saudi Arabia for more than ten years and became, during that time, a friend and confidante of Princess Sultana. Quantity Available: 1.

The Bitch In The House - 26 Women Tell The Truth About Sex, Solitude, Work, Motherhood and Marriage
Cathi Hanauer [Editor],
ISBN: 0670914371
Viking / Penguin, Great Britain, 2003. 
  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.

Daughters of Arabia
Sasson, Jean
ISBN: 0553816934
Bantam Books, USA, 1994. 
  Paperback. Good/. Reprint. 317 pages. Covers have light creasing. Spine has minor lean and moderate reading creases. Pages are lightly tanned. Following "Princess", dealing with women's lives behind the veil within the royal family of Saudi Arabia, this book now turns the spotlight on Princess Sultana's teenage daughters, Maha and Amani. Surrounded by great opulence and luxury from they day they were born, but stifled by the restrictive lifestyle imposed on them, they have reacted in desperate ways. Their stories, and those which concern other members of Princess Sultana's huge family, are set against a rich backcloth of Saudi Arabian culture and social mores, which the book depicts. It details, for example, the ritual of the annual pilgrimage to Mecca, as the princess and her family journey to this holiest of cities. Throughout the book, however, she never tires of her quest to expose the injustices which her society levels against women. In her campaign to improve the lot of her own daughters, Princess Sultana strikes a chord amongst those women who are lucky enough to have the freedom to speak out for themselves. The author lived in Saudi Arabia for more than ten years and became, during that time, a friend and confidante of Princess Sultana. Quantity Available: 1.

The Whole Woman
Greer, Germaine
ISBN: 1862300577
Anchor, Great Britain, 1999. 
  Medium Trade Paperback. Good/. . 452 pages. Covers have light creasing. Edges of covers have superficial wear. Spine is uncreased. Page edges are lightly browned and slightly soiled. 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 as the millennium draws to a close. 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 announcement in February 1998 that this book was coming was enough to send the world's media into a frenzied spin of speculation: The Whole Woman will be required reading for thinking adults everywhere.

Veiled Courage
Benard, Cheryl, with Schlaffer, Edit
ISBN: 1740511662
Random House, Australia, 2002. 
  Medium Trade Paperback. Good (ex-library)/. . 293 pages. Tanned pages. Clear, self-adhesive laminate to covers/boards. Slight spine lean. Ex-library with usual marks, stamps, stickers.. A woman - or rather, a rumpled bundle of cloth, but we've all seen enough footage of Afghanistan by now to realise that it's a woman - is dumped off the back of a truck and shoved forward...A Taliban soldier steps up and puts the barrel of his gun against her head. She twists to look up at him, then huddles down. At point blank range he shoots her in the head. She collapses. A woman strolls over to the corpse and fusses with the Burqa - better to see the dead woman's blood and brains on the turf than her bare ankles...The Revolutionary Association of the Women of Afghanistan (RAWA)- a brave grass roots underground organisation - is one bright spot in a dark and desperate situation. Cheryl Benard is not a writer who has "discovered" RAWA, or someone searching for something more to say about Afghanistan. Rather, she has been part of the resistance efforts for more than a decade. Her husband, Zalmay Khalilzad, is himself an Afghan refugee which originally led Cheryl to become involved. Today, Zal is a special advisor to President George W. Bush and is a member of the National Security Council under Condeleeza Rice and is based in the White House. The intimate knowledge Cheryl has of RAWA is simply unparalleled. Originally a salon for Kabul's middle class lady intellectuals, the organisation now has several thousand official members in its struggle against the complete subordination of women in Afghanistan. Veiled Courage describes the inside operations of this extraordinary movement - how ordinary women function in such an extreme environment and how they deal with danger and fear. As the first post-modern resistance group, RAWA uses the same archaic instruments (the veil) and high tech support (the internet, digital video cameras) as its enemies, the Taliban and Al-Qaada. It also operates secretly with a complex decentralised structure of cells with an inclination to strong, charismatic leadership. This is a shocking, gripping and inspirational read. Simply unputdownable! Quantity Available: 1. Category: Women & Feminism; ISBN: 1740511662. ISBN/EAN: 9781740511667. Inventory No: 12072116.

 Softcover 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.

Anchor, Great Britain, 2000. 
 Softcover 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.

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.

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.

During Mother’s Absence
Roberts, Michele,
ISBN: 185381797X
Virago, London, 1994. 
  Softcover. Very Good Condition/. Reprint. Subversive, sensual tales, wise and witty fictions; this collection of short stories from one of Britain's most acclaimed novelists is by turns shockingly delicious and soberingly disquieting. When mother is away taboos are breached, the untouchables embraced and the forbidden tasted. In 'Laundry' a poor, plain girl takes devilish pleasure in outwitting the pious monks and nuns she washes for. In the haunting, powerful fable 'Anger' a young woman, branded by fire at birth by her mother is scarred- and blessed- for life. In the highly sensuous 'Taking it Easy' a mother with writers block finds an escape from the slavery of her twin enemies by turning them into food for thought. And in the beautiful, arresting 'God's House' a young girl faces the ultimate mother's absence. – rear panel blurb Size: 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. 192 pages.

Generation f: Sex, power, and the young feminist
Trioli, Virginia,
ISBN: 1863305130
Minerva , Port Melbourne, 1996. 
  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.

There is a belief that single women, almost 100,000 of them, who immigrated to Australia during the colonial period – 1850-1900 – were looking for husbands.
