Revision with unchanged content. While studying at Sweet Briar College, Ms. Sinner realized the importance of what past feminists have done for women. Once she began research on her master’s thesis at Bowling Green State University, knowing that she would like to write about the German film bandits, Ms. Sinner found that there was plenty of information on the women’s movement and feminist films of the 1970s. There was, however, very little research and information on newer German female filmmakers of the 1980s or 1990s. She decided to write a thesis on important German female filmmakers from the 1980s and 1990s, how they were influenced by previous generations of women in front of and behind the camera, what the films and characters were like in the 1970s and what they later became, and what the future for these new female directors might hold. This book looks at films from Helma Sanders-Brahms, Margarethe von Trotta, and Doris Dorrie. The focus of this book is on Sherry Hormann and Katja von Garnier and the films that they have produced. The book specifically discusses Hormann's Widows and Irren ist mannlich, and von Garnier's Abgeschminkt!, bandits, and Iron Jawed Angels, which even contemplates von Garnier's staying power in Hollywood. This book is specifically addressed to university students and professors who are interested in German Studies and German film.
The following motto drives me to write: “What really knocks me out is a book that, when you're all done reading it, you wish the author that wrote it was a terrific friend of yours and you could call him up on the phone whenever you felt like it. That doesn't happen much, though.” ? J.D. Salinger, The Catcher in the Rye...I have always wondered what makes this world go round. This book is an endeavour to find the answers to many questions. This collection of essays is very short but they are very close to my heart. I have tried to give insights to the topics that I have covered here.
The New Woman or the emerging image of women was a feminist idea that emerged in the final decades of the nineteenth century in Europe and North America.The woman has always been the sub altern across cultural boundaries. Woolf's feminism did not advocate the claims of women to political, social and economic equality with men. Her feminism was a deep rooted desire surging inside from adolescence to create a new world for women writers to write fearlessly, and to challenge cultural codes reinforcing the myth of an obscure invisible woman - writer.Woolf’s novels Mrs. Dalloway and To the Lighthouse are mouthpiece of the writer as her female protagonists justify Woolf's claim of woman's superiority in her search for truth in the chaotic world of human-beings. Woolf's achievement as a novelist distinguishes her as a famous luminary in the galaxy of English literature. Woolf's novels are a triumph of 'mind over matter' portrayed through human –relationships of love not self seeking but pure, combining realism with platonic idealism.
Gokhale’s novels are mostly all about women. Her protagonists, like Paro and Priya of Paro: Dreams of Passion, Gods, Graves and Gramother’s Gudiya, Parvati in A Himalayan Love Story, Rachita of The Book of Shadows and Shakuntala in the novel Shakuntala, all have followed the course and concerns of her own life: whether as a little child, adult lady, career oriented or as a married woman.As the intricacy in human relationship is an instrument in developing the self of an individual, a woman has to face discrimination, sense of insecurity, sexual harassment, to which she is exposed everywhere in their world.
All over the world, the issue of women taking their place in modern society and especially in political leadership has been high on the agenda of many women's advocacy groups. Although the number of women in political leadership is growing, there is a continued lack of gender equality in politics. A number of reasons have been given for this- poverty and lack of formal education among women as compared to men. This study was aimed at finding out the role that our local proverbs in Ghana (West Africa), contribute in shaping peoples attitudes towards women and the perceived roles women are expected to play in society. The study was done using the Akan, Ewe, and Dagomba ethnic groups of Ghana. The results are discussed in terms of their implications for getting more women to be involved and take up political leadership positions.

How do you make the transition from promising researcher to established academic author? Many cross this Rubicon without knowing if they paddled, swam or built a boat; others drown as they thrash around in mid-stream. And the mere phrase ‘academic publishing’ covers a multitude of sins; it is enough to give the uninitiated the willies. Writing monographs, research papers, book reviews, conference abstracts or whatever each requires a different approach. You have to decide what it is you are going to write and where to publish it. On the way you will meet the good, the bad and the ugly, succinctly describing most co-authors, peer reviewers and editors (not necessarily in that order). After all, the only way to write like an academic is to write like an academic … but where do you start? You could do much worse than start here. Stephen Donovan has been publishing on such diverse subjects as Caribbean geology, palaeontology, the history of science and academic authorship for over 30 years. He loves research, writing and publishing, and has compiled a book of highly readable essays to help all researchers, both the new and not so new, to write better papers and to get them published.
Hellman's works are dealing with issues of gender within a framework that is woman-centered. Her protagonists in these two dramas The Little Foxes (1939) and Another Part of the Forest (1946) are primarily women whose diverse problems are all related to areas and themes concerning women. She extensively deals with diverse themes of sexism and racism and oppression from patriarchal culture she had experienced throughout her life. Her most recurring themes in her dramas discussed in Literature Criticism are as follows: "the struggle to have money and power of our own, the price of power and money in any way, friendships among women especially the attention of whites to the black servants, the problem of loving men who regard us as less than themselves, sensuality, violence in class struggle. Hellman's dramas represent the female characters who try to defense themselves and protect themselves from the pressures of a patriarchal society and resist on her private and social rights .

"Nomadic Subjects" has guided discourse in continental philosophy and feminist theory, exploring the constitution of contemporary subjectivity, especially the concept of difference within European philosophy and political theory. Rosi Braidotti's creative style vividly renders a productive crisis of modernity. From a feminist perspective, she recasts embodiment, sexual difference, and complex concepts through relations to technology, historical events, and popular culture. This thoroughly revised and expanded edition retains all but two of Braidotti's original essays, including her investigations into epistemology's relation to the "woman question"; feminism and biomedical ethics; European feminism; and the possible relations between American feminism and European politics and philosophy. A new piece integrates Deleuze and Guattari's concept of the "becoming-minoritarian" more deeply into modern democratic thought, and a chapter on methodology explains Braidotti's methods while engaging with her critics. A new introduction muses on Braidotti's provocative legacy.

This book blatantly critical of patriarchy and shed light on the knowledge that improve the position of women from the historical perspective to contemporary world. This book also emphasizes on those knowledge and strategy that clobber mysterious philosophy of patriarchal society and covet to retrieve the dissipated true position of women in society. This theoretical perspective is a debatable issue world wide as feminists have taken different standpoints for their irrespective ideological stances. The current book intended to expedite the social movement of feminists through the epigrammatic exercise of knowledge. It does not challenge the existing discourse. The views [e.g., Husband and wife are one; and that one is the husband (Blockstone); A horse, whether good or bad, needs a spur; a woman, whether good or bad, needs a lord and master, and sometimes a stick (De pison)] that delude people and espouse the fettering and reprehensible knowledge have been examined in this book. The current study extrapolates the possible way out of women’s current subordinate position pinpointing the scintillating path of women emancipation.
Certainly one good way to learn how to write is to follow the example of those who can write well. “You have to read, read, and read” says Walter Ong (1979, as cited in Eschholz, 1980, p. 5). “There is no way to write unless you read, and read a lot” (p. 12). Eschholz (1980) states that in reading, writers see the printed words, the shape and order of sentences, and the texture of paragraphs. He believes that the prose model approach to the teaching of writing holds that writers can develop and improve their writing skills through directed reading. Ferris and Hedgcock (1998, as cited in Abe, 2008) argue that L2 writers have to be exposed to various types of reading material since it is difficult to acquire L2 writing skills by only writing. Similarly, Eschholz (1980) points out that what L2 learners write depends on what they read and they can improve their L2 writing skills by reading. He also argues that given the opportunities to learn rhetorical modes, L2 learners can eventually apply their knowledge about those modes to their writing. . Thus, some researchers believe by model essays, readers can pay attention to the various aspects of TL (e.g., Hyland, 2003; ; Hanaoka, 2007).

The feminist ideal invades the culture and it becomes effective already in politics and legislations. But if mankind lived an era where women’s willpower dominated in the social relationships, it would be reasonable to know the origin and the essence of that stadium, as well as the causes that it was succeeded by the current patriarchy. Natural History, Anthropology, Sociology, Psychology, Laws, Philosophy (Epistemology, Ethics, Aesthetics, and Axiology) they are among others, the important scientific edges to analyze the matter in question. The study evaluate the masculine over-exigency, as a derivative phenomenon of the application of same leveler for unequal genders, like in the man's and the woman’s case; masculine disadvantages are exposed here in form of alerts from a sociological and a psychological reflection, but of worthy political consequences to be kept in mind: it would not be with egalitarianisms neither with equitable political how it would maybe be glimpsed some advance and solution to a problem maybe so serious as the feminine emancipation that will be passed history within several years in the future, just like it is it today the old matriarchy in the time.
With an introduction by Sheila Heti A unique love story and a classic work of philosophy, rooted in the mysterious workings of the human heart and mind. Perhaps it is true that we do not really exist until there is someone there to see us existing, we cannot properly speak until there is someone who can understand what we are saying in essence, we are not wholly alive until we are loved. A man and a woman meet over casual conversation on a flight from Paris to London, and so begins a love story - from first kiss to first argument, elation to heartbreak, and everything in between. Each stage of the relationship is illuminated with startling clarity, as de Botton explores emotions often felt but rarely understood. With the verve of a novelist and the insight of a philosopher, Alain de Botton uncovers the mysteries of the human heart. Essays In Love is an iconic book - one that should be read by anyone who has ever fallen in love.

"Is Pinterest Really Killing Feminism?" is a response to the notion, popularized by Amy Odell’s article “How Pinterest is Killing Feminism,” that the social media site Pinterest, which is dominated by female users, is detrimental both to the feminist movement and women in general. A definition of feminism, contrary to the one employed by Odell, is established and applied to Pinterest users and Pinterest content. Two forms of content prevalent on Pinterest, domestic content and “thinspo” images, are evaluated in terms of their prevalence and how they are used on Pinterest and their overall effect on women and feminism. Betty Friedan’s "The Feminine Mystique" and Naomi Wolf’s "The Beauty Myth" are also employed to address Odell’s claims that Pinterest content is reminiscent of the “retrograde, materialistic” content in women’s magazines.
Poetry is never more vital, meaningful, or accessible than in the hands of David Orr. In the pieces collected here, the great majority of them written originally for the readership of the New York Times, Orr is at his rigorous, conversational, and edifying best. Whether he is considering the careers of contemporary masters, such as Louise Gluck or Frederick Seidel, sizing up younger American poets, like Matthea Harvey and Matthew Zapruder, or even turning his attention to celebrities and public figures, namely Oprah Winfrey and Stephen Fry, when they choose to wade into the hotly-contested waters of the poetry world, Orr is never any less than totally persuasive in arguing what makes a poem or poet great--or not. After all, as Orr points out in his introduction, "Poetry is a lot like America, in the sense that liking all of it means that you probably shouldn't be trusted with money, or scissors."Orr's prose is devoted to common sense and clarity, and, in every case, he brings to bear an impeccable ear, a genial openhandedness of spirit, and a deep wealth of technical knowledge--to say nothing of his shrewd sense of humor. Orr's journalism represents a high watermark in the public discussion of literature, and is as pleasurable as it is informative. You, Too, Could Write a Poem is at heart a love note to poetry itself.
