Harmful to minors : the perils of protecting children from sex by Judith Levine( Book )

21 editions published between 2002 and 2006 in English and Spanish and held by 1,479 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Sex is a wonderful, crucial part of growing up, and children and teens can enjoy the pleasures of the body and be safe, too. In this book Judith Levine makes this argument and goes further, asserting that America's attempts to protect children from sex are worse than ineffectual. It is the assumption of danger and the exclusive focus on protection--what Levine terms "the sexual politics of fear"--That are themselves harmful to minors. Through interviews with young people and their parents, stories drawn from today's headlines, visits to classrooms and clinics, and a look back at the ways sex among children and teenagers has been viewed throughout history, Judith Levine debunks some of the dominant myths of our society. She examines and challenges widespread anxieties (pedophilia, stranger kidnapping, Internet pornography) and sacred cows (abstinence-based sex education, statutory rape laws). Levine investigates the policies and practices that affect kids' sex lives--censorship, psychology, sex and AIDS education, family, criminal, and reproductive law, and the journalism that begs for "solutions" while inciting more fear. Harmful to minors offers fresh alternatives to fear and silence, describing sex-positive approaches that are ethically based and focus on common sense. Levine provides optimistic, though realistic, prescriptions for how we might do better in guiding children toward loving well--that is, safely, pleasurably, and with respect for others and themselves

Ain't no trust : how bosses, boyfriends, and bureaucrats fail low-income mothers and why it matters by Judith Levine( )

2 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 950 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ain't No Trust explores issues of trust and distrust among low-income women in the U.S.-at work, around childcare, in their relationships, and with caseworkers-and presents richly detailed evidence from in-depth interviews about our welfare system and why it's failing the very people it is designed to help. By comparing low-income mothers' experiences before and after welfare reform, Judith A. Levine probes women's struggles to gain or keep jobs while they simultaneously care for their children, often as single mothers. By offering a new way to understand how structural factors impact the daily experiences of poor women, Ain't No Trust highlights the pervasiveness of distrust in their lives, uncovering its hidden sources and documenting its most corrosive and paralyzing effects. Levine's critique and conclusions hold powerful implications for scholars and policymakers alike
My enemy, my love : man-hating and ambivalence in women's lives by Judith Levine( Book )

4 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 583 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Destined to become the first "postfeminist" feminist classic, My Enemy, My Love is a landmark exposition of the intellectually and emotionally rich, little explored, often subterranean world of women's hatred of men, and what author Judith Levine calls "its more diplomatic and doubtful twin, ambivalence." Levine, a respected journalist, argues that man-hating is not an individual neurosis but rather a "collective, cultural phenomenon," and not just a problem for women or for feminism, but for men, too, who contribute to its causes and suffer its consequences. A volatile admixture of pity, contempt, disgust, envy, alienation, fear, and rage, man-hating is everywhere, shared by all women. "If man-hating is mine," states the author, "it belongs too to my next-door neighbor, my mother, and to the woman standing in front of me on line at the post office." All men are its objects: the anonymous rapist, cop, or judge, and, far more troubling, the men women love and share their lives with--fathers, husbands, lovers, friends, even sons. Culling stereotypes of men--among them the Bumbler, the Abandoner, the Pet, and the Killer--Levine shows how they articulate mixed feelings, symbolically redress power imbalances, police changing gender boundaries, and make sense, and fun, of men. After describing man-hating, the author addresses its origins in a unique examination of the family, and traces the role of man-hating in the unfolding of contemporary feminism. Finally, with anedotes drawn from in-depth interviews, she incisively yet sympathetically portrays individual women's strategies for living with "love and man-hating, cooperation and rebellion, intimacy and alienation, and all those other ambivalent pairs of feeling that relationships are made of." Certain to be controversial, My Enemy, My Love is an illuminating, accessible, witty, and engrossing analysis of the hate that dares not speak its name. It is a deeply revolutionary work that should be read by all women and men

Do you remember me? : a father, a daughter, and a search for self by Judith Levine( Book )

3 editions published between 2004 and 2015 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In her award-winning Harmful to Minors, Judith Levine radically disturbed our fixed ideas about childhood. Now, the poignantly personal Do You Remember Me' tackles the other end of life. The book is both the memoir of a daughter coming to terms with a difficult father who is sinking into dementia and an insightful exploration of the ways we think about disability, aging, and the self as it resides in the body and the world. In prose that is unsentimental yet moving, serious yet darkly funny, complex in emotion and ideas yet spare in diction, Levine reassembles her father's personal and professional history even as he is losing track of it. She unpeels the layers of his complicated personality and uncovers information that surprises even her mother, to whom her father has been married for more than sixty years. As her father deteriorates, the family consensus about who he was and is and how best to care for him constantly threatens to collapse. Levine recounts the painful discussions, mad outbursts, and gingerly negotiations, and dissects the shifting alliances among family, friends, and a changing guard of hired caretakers. Spending more and more time with her father, she confronts a relationship that has long felt bereft of love. By caring for his needs, she learns to care about and, slowly, to love him. While Levine chronicles these developments, she looks outside her family for the sources of their perceptions and expectations, deftly weaving politics, science, history, and philosophy into their personal story. A memoir opens up to become a critique of our culture's attitudes toward the old and demented. A claustrophobic account of Alzheimer's is transformed into a complex lesson about love, duty, and community. What creates a self and keeps it whole' Levine insists that only the collaboration of others can safeguard her father's self against the riddling of his brain. Embracing interdependence and vulnerability, not autonomy and productivity, as the seminal elements of our humanity, Levine challenges herself and her readers to find new meaning, even hope, in one man's mortality and our own

The Open Society Foundations continue to position pain relief and palliative care as a pressing human rights issue. Through grants and technical assistance, we help to create links between legal services and palliative care providers. We work with our grantees to evaluate financing schemes for palliative care and help them develop advocacy and communications strategies to advance palliative care policies and programs. We work with the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria to educate staff, country partners, and grant recipients about the role of and need for palliative care in AIDS treatment. The International Palliative Care Initiative's strategy of "planting a seed to let a thousand flowers grow" has enhanced the development of palliative care in resource-limited countries worldwide. The challenges ahead are many but the dedication of individuals and civil society organizations to reduce suffering and improve the care of patients and families remains inspirational. This report offers a snapshot of the challenges and opportunities for advancing palliative care globally
