So serious are the topics of rape and sexual assault that the mere discussion of them is often avoided. In this book, Mary Odem and Jody Clay-Warner examine the complex and painful issue of sexual violence from various perspectives, including sociology, criminology, anthropology, public health, and women's studies. The inclusion of personal accounts from women who have been raped or threatened by rape makes this collection particularly accessible, compelling, and powerful. Not only does this invaluable collection define and examine the prevalence of rape and sexual assault, but it analyzes social and institutional factors that contribute to their occurrence and provides strategies for prevention and change.

This title brings together twenty-five writings by women who share their rich and varied World War II experiences, from serving in the military to working on the home front to preparing for the postwar world. By providing evidence of their active and resourceful roles in the war effort as workers, wives, and mothers, these women offer eloquent testimony that World War II was indeed everybody's war. Litoff and Smith combine pieces by well-known writers, such as Margaret Culkin Banning and Nancy Wilson Ross, with important-but largely forgotten-personal accounts by ordinary women living in extraordinary times. This volume is divided into the six sections listed below: Preparing for War In the Military At 'Far-Flung' Fronts On the Home Front War Jobs Preparing for the Postwar World

Selten ist ein Buch so viel in den Medien besprochen worden wie dieses: Darf jemand das, dem Vergewaltiger vergeben - und warum tut Thordis Elva das öffentlich? Warum räumt sie Tom Stranger seitenlang Raum ein in ihrem authentischen Schicksalsbericht - und welche Erkenntnisse hat ein Täter beizutragen? Ein tief berührendes Buch, in dem sich die beiden, Elva und Stranger, mit wichtigen Fragen auseinandersetzen: mit der Schuld, dem Vertrauen und der Möglichkeit der Vergebung -, aber auch mit ihrem eigenen Erleben und den lebenslangen Folgen einer entsetzlichen Tat.. Die Isländerin Thordis Elva ist 16, als sie von ihrem Freund vergewaltigt wird. Nach einer Party nutzt Tom, der australische Austauschschüler, ihre Wehrlosigkeit aus und missbraucht sie stundenlang. Danach ist für Thordis wie auch für Tom nichts mehr wie zuvor. Beide versuchen auf ihre Weise, das Geschehen zu verarbeiten – vergeblich. Bis Thordis Jahre später mit Tom Kontakt aufnimmt. Sie schlägt ihm ein Treffen vor, in Kapstadt, auf halber Strecke zwischen Reykjavik und Sydney. Ihr Ziel: Sie will Tom die Tat vergeben und so endlich die Opferrolle ablegen. Auch Tom hat seine Sicht der Dinge zu erzählen. Dieser ehrliche und authentische Bericht einer emotional riskanten Begegnung spricht Frauen und Männer an - denn Vergewaltigung in der Partnerschaft ist ein heiß diskutiertes Debattenthema. Auf einzigartige Weise schildern die vielfach ausgezeichneten Autorin und Journalistin Thordis Elva, die sich für Gewaltprävention einsetzt, und Tom Stranger, der jahrelang als Sozialarbeiter tätig war, was damals zwischen ihnen wirklich passiert ist. Und wie es ihnen nach langen Jahren im Austausch gelingt, den Mut zu fassen, sich den Tatsachen zu stellen und das Unfassbare zu verarbeiten. Thordis Elva: „Nur so konnte ich mir beweisen, dass Gewalt keine Macht über mich hat. Nicht damals, nicht heute: nie.“

Autobiography, as evidenced by best-seller lists, is one of the most popular literary genres. However, because critics have long dismissed it as subpar literature, little attention has been paid to autobiography, particularly accounts by women. Women and Autobiography, edited by Martine Watson Brownley and Allison B. Kimmich, offers an insightful perspective on this often overlooked field. This text gives a compact, comprehensive overview of women's autobiography, providing historical back-ground and contemporary criticism along with selections from a range of autobiographies by women. Developed primarily for undergraduates, Women and Autobiography combines theory and practice by pairing autobiographical selections and criticism. This book is a useful tool for courses in autobiography, literature by women, and women's studies.

Socrates. Virgil. Sir Francis Bacon. While over time, the concept of the great thinker has evolved and redefined itself, it has not evolved to formally include women in its exclusive circle of members. Conspicuously absent are the names of female "great thinkers" in intellectual studies--despite the skyrocketing interest in the American intellectual and the contribution by women to America's social and intellectual development. So, then, what does it mean to be an American woman intellectual in the nineteenth, twentieth, and twenty-first centuries? A collection of biographies and writings from the nineteenth century through the present, Voices Unbound speaks to the blatant omission of women from intellectual studies and begins the work of developing a women's intellectual tradition. Lydia Maria Child, Charlotte Perkins Gilman, Margaret Mead, Susan Sontag, bell hooks--Voices Unbound reintroduces these remarkable women and their writings to the American public. Thorough and insightful, Voices Unbound is an important book for all those studying American intellectual history and women's history.
