Golda by Elinor Burkett ( Book )
12 editions published between 2008 and 2014 in 3 languages and held by 1,223 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The first female head of state in the Western world and one of the most influential women in modern history, Golda Meir was one of the founders of the State of Israel, the architect of its socialist infrastructure, and its most tenacious international defender. Historian-journalist Burkett looks beyond Meir's well-known accomplishments to the complex motivations and ideals, personal victories and disappointments, of her charismatic public persona. Beginning with Meir's childhood in virulently anti-Semitic Russia and her family's subsequent relocation to the United States, Burkett places Meir within the framework of the American immigrant experience, the Holocaust, and the singlemindedness of a generation that carved a nation out of its own nightmares and dreams.--From publisher description
The baby boon : how family-friendly America cheats the childless by Elinor Burkett ( Book )
4 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 858 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
""Equal Pay for Equal Work" is one of the foundations of modern American work life. But workers without children do not reap the same rewards as do their colleagues who are parents. Instead, as veteran journalist Elinor Burkett reveals, the past decade has seen the most massive redistribution of wealth since the War on Poverty - this time not from rich to poor but from nonparents, no matter how modest their means, to parents, no matter how affluent. Parents today want their child and their Lexus, too - which accounts for the new culture of parental privilege that Burkett aptly calls "the baby boon."" "Burkett reports from the front lines of the work-place: from the hallowed newsroom of The New York Times to the floor of a textile factory in North Carolina to a hospital in Boston. She exposes a simmering backlash against perks for parents, from workers who are losing their tempers and fighting for their rights. She spells out how tax breaks for families with six-figure incomes are not available to childless people earning half as much. And she tells the dramatic story of how pro-family conservatives and feminists became strange bedfellows on the issue of pro-family rights, leading to an increase in workplace and government entitlement for parents - at the same time as the childless poor lost their public benefits." "Armed with hard data and grassroots reporting, Elinor Burkett points the way to a more equitable future. With an inside look at what some companies are already doing to redress the grievances of childless workers and a hard assessment of what the truly needy - children and adults - require in order to survive, Burkett fires the first shot in the battle to come."--BOOK JACKET
The right women : a journey through the heart of conservative America by Elinor Burkett ( Book )
5 editions published between 1998 and 1999 in English and held by 758 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
American women have begun cropping up in unlikely places - in the conservative reaches of politics and at the helm of the National Rifle Association, in extremist militia groups and on the talk shows of the most virulent antiliberal, and antifeminist, radio hosts in the nation. Despite feminist predictions that women's liberation would forge a national sisterhood dancing to a liberal beat, women in growing numbers are declaring themselves to be strong, invincible and enemies of the very movement that empowered them. Elinor Burkett, a pioneer in women's studies, spent two years on the road meeting the vanguard of this counter-women's movement in order to write The Right Women. She interviewed the shooting stars of national politics, identifiable leaders such as Elizabeth Dole, Bay Buchanan and Helen Chenoweth - and the stars-to-be, twentysomethings who are bold, brash and brazenly right wing. She walked the halls of academia with politically incorrect college students and faculty, visited the homes of gun-toting militiawomen in Montana and listened to the lonely Abolitionists - African-American conservative women intent on doing away with every program liberals ever designed to help them. You will meet these women, and dozens more, whose voices have been curiously absent from the national discussion, on the pages of this book. The Right Women is neither an attack on feminism nor a defense of antifeminism, but a travelogue through the lives of women who are rewriting women's history with the choices they make about careers, marriage, childbearing, fashion, television and voting. Burkett argues that while they are forging new relationships with institutions that liberal feminism has written off as hopelessly patriarchal, these women are not turning their backs on the ideals of the women's movement. Instead, they are living up to those ideals by refusing to march in lockstep with anyone - even their so-called sisters. Their refusal to live the lives their feminist forebears prescribed for them is the fruit of the very movement they are rejecting

Then imagine navigating that country from a wheelchair, without functioning hands, or with some other disability in a culture where the disabled are seen as cursed. You don't have to imagine. iThemba takes you there in a rich verite tapestry about the band Liyana, eight edgy young musicians who negotiate their country's chaotic political waters, economic collapse and deep-seated prejudices with humor and grit
