Undaunted : surviving Jonestown, summoning courage, and fighting back by Jackie Speier( Book )

1 edition published in 2018 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

November, 1978. Speier joined Congressman Leo Ryan's delegation to rescue defectors from cult leader Jim Jones's Peoples Temple in Jonestown, Guyana. Ryan was killed on the airstrip tarmac. Jackie was shot five times at point-blank range. While recovering, Jackie had to choose: Would she become a victim or a fighter? She chose to become a vocal proponent for human rights. Here she reveals her story of resilience as a widow, a mother, a congresswoman, and a fighter, to inspire other women to draw strength from adversity in order to do what is right. -- adapted from jacket
Mel's Story : Surviving Military Sexual Assault, A Doonesbury Book by Jackie Speier( )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

"An estimated 19,000 rapes and sexual assaults took place in the military last year. Every one of them represents a monstrous crime made much worse by the sense of betrayal that accompanied it. That so few victims — just one in seven — report these crimes underscores the utter lack of trust that pervades military culture." — Retired Gen. Loree Sutton and Garry Trudeau, in a Washington Post OpEd, June 29, 2013 The first time B.D. encounters command-rape survivor Melissa Wheeler in the waiting room at the V.A. Center, he has no idea what to make of the scowling former chopper mechanic. But in the months that follow, witnessing Mel's pain and her healing process help him with his own, and B.D. ends up a staunch and encouraging ally. With the help of V.A. counselors Cora and Elias, Wheeler is able to reframe her experience and move forward to the point where she re-ups and re-deploys, though the trauma and betrayal continue to haunt her. She and battlebud Roz masterfully manage a perilous rescue op of a downed U.S.O. chopper, and in the new post-D.A.D.T. world the now-out Roz and her now-superior ("That's SERGEANT bitch to you!") help wind down U.S. ops in Afghanistan. Returning stateside, Mel's final obstacle is her father's cluelessness — and a widespread reluctance to hear the truth of her story. As always, Trudeau manages to find humor and humanity in even a tale of suffering, and sheds serious light on one of the most pressing and undermining problems in our military today

Ėto ne ta zhiznʹ, kotorui︠u︡ i︠a︡ zakazyvala! : 50 sposobov vyplytʹ, kogda zhiznʹ ti︠a︡net tebi︠a︡ na dno by Deborah C Stephens( )

1 edition published in 2009 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

If you've ever felt overworked, overwhelmed, or just plain unlucky, this book is for you. Through this collection of stories, wisdom, and practical advice, readers will meet four ordinary women who have faced extraordinary life challenges. Together, they have a history of six marriages, ten children, four stepchildren, six dogs, two miscarriages, two cats, a failed adoption, widowhood, and foster parenthood. They have built companies, lost companies, and sold companies. One of them was shot and left for dead on a tarmac in South America, and two lived through the deaths of spouses. Raising babies and teenagers together, they have known celebrity and success along with loneliness and self-doubt. This book started simply with four friends getting together at the kitchen table to talk about their lives. Week by week and story by story, they realized their support of each other could help other women struggling with life's myriad issues of work, family, and love, as well as the big questions of life and death. For over a decade, the power and strength of their collective friendship has enabled these women to not only survive but to thrive. The remarkable results are in this collection of lessons and stories and wisdom, which can help any woman turn any misfortunate event into a joy-filled opportunity
